U2 -- City of Blinding Lights (Live)


Tabbed by DiscothequeLP (discothequelp@gmail.com) 
March 25, 2005 -- UPDATED: June 10, 2006




Alright, this one is tabbed from the Brooklyn Bridge performance. Edge uses 2 delays, one shorter delay (around 330ms -- dotted 8th 
note) and one longer delay afterwards (around 440 ms -- quarter note). Edge also uses a slide on his middle finger. To get it to sound 
right, you really need a Herdim or Herdim-like pick to get that scratchy sound that makes the delay even louder. 


Tune down 1/2 a step.





Intro/Verse


Play this part with the slide, and keep hitting the notes up and down (if you listen to the live version, you'll be able to hear it)

   
    (palm muted)
e|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
b|-10-10-10--10-10-10--10-10-10-10--9-9-9-9/12--12--9--9/10--10-10-10-10--|
g|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
d|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
a|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------------|





Intro pt.2 / Post-chorus riff

Let these notes ring, maybe shake the slide a ltitle bit


e|-----------------------------------------------------------|
b|-15--14----10/12-12/15--14\10----10/12-12/15--14--12\-7----|
g|-----------------------------------------------------------|   2x
d|-----------------------------------------------------------|
a|-----------------------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------|






Verse



The verse riff is this riff again

e|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
b|-10-10-10--10-10-10--10-10-10-10--9-9-9-9/12--12--9--9/10--10-10-10-10--|
g|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
d|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
a|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------------|



But Edge adds this at the end


(palm muted, let the delay ring out)

e|-----12------12-------12-----
b|-10------10------10------10--
g|-----------------------------
d|-----------------------------
a|-----------------------------


For the first verse, play these two parts twice.

For the second verse, instead of playing that short little bit at the end of the second repetition, Edge plays this:



e|----------------------------------------------|
b|---------------------------------------5------|
g|-6--7--6--4---6--7--6--4----------------------|  2x
d|---------------------------2--2---4--------4--|
a|----------------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------------|






Pre-Chorus



e|------0------0------0------0---------------0------0-----0-----0-----|
b|--15-----13-----12-----13-----12--10---12-----10-----8-----7-----7--| 
g|--------------------------------------------------------------------|  2x
d|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
a|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
   
   And I, miss you. . . 









Chorus



e|---------------------------------------------------------10-10-10-10--12-12-12-12--14-14-14-14--10-10-10-10--|
b|-12-12-12--10--12-12-12--10--12-12-12--10--12-12-12--10--10-10-10-10--10-10-10-10--10-10-10-10--10-10-10-10--| 
g|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|   3x
d|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
a|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|





Bridge


Alrght, this part gets a little tricky if you're not good with a slide.




          (slide this down slowly)
               \/ 
e|-----------------------|
b|-----------------------|
g|-----------------------|  4x
d|--/14\---/7--/9----\---|
a|-----------------------|
E|-----------------------|

                Time. . . 


Outro



e|--------------------------|
b|-12--12-10--12-10--12-10--|
g|--------------------------|  repeat it a lot
d|--------------------------|
a|--------------------------|
E|--------------------------|







Intro
Post-chorus
Verse 1
Pre-Chorus
Chorus
Post-Chorus
Verse 2
Pre-Chorus

Post-Chorus

Chorus 2x

Outro

Isn't that the Boostcomp setting on Edge's custom made rackmounted DM4 from Line6?
