Hope this helps

The main riff (I'm not sure it's 100% accurate):

5|-5-3---3---5-3--3-3------
6|------5---5-----5----5-3-5

The chords in the chorus

G G# G G#
You don't know how....

G A# D# G# G (main riff)
You don't know how beautiful you are...



I think that's about it

That's what I was wondering too.


Why is everyone on the whole forum so mad for those new songs? How about just WAIT until we get the friggin album and THEN go mad??

This is definitely correct for the main riff of the song. And, I gotta say, it's a pretty damn fun and easy little lick to play. Of course, you'd have to put some serious distortion on that bitch for it to sound like the SEXY BOOTS but, yeah, that's it.

Am I correct in guessing that the main bassriff is the same as the guitar riff? I think it sounds like that.

Yes, I would guess so.
Here's my take on the full song:

Code:
U2 - Get On Your Boots (Single Version)
No Line On The Horizon (2009)
Standard Tuning (eBGDAE)
Tabulature Version
Effects: Octave fuzz distortion, wah-wah pedal, delay.



Intro:

After the short drum intro by Larry, The Edge comes in with the Main Riff.
During the verses The Edge doesn't play anything but rather lets Adam shine.
Then for the chorus and in-between the verses Edge plays the catchy riff again:

Main Riff:

e|---------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------|
A|-5p3----3---5------3---3----3----------|
E|-----5h---5----------5---------5-3-5---|

I'll refer to the next part as the Pre-chorus, where we hear some beautiful backing vocals.
Pre-chorus:

"You don't know how beautiful..."

	G		G#		G              G#
e|-----3--3-3--3-3----4--4-4--4-4----3--3-3--3-3----4--4-4--4-4--|
B|-----3--3-3--3-3----4--4-4--4-4----3--3-3--3-3----4--4-4--4-4--|
G|-----4--4-4--4-4----5--5-5--5-5----4--4-4--4-4----5--5-5--5-5--|
D|-----5--5-5--5-5----6--6-6--6-6----5--5-5--5-5----6--6-6--6-6--|
A|-----5--5-5--5-5----6--6-6--6-6----5--5-5--5-5----6--6-6--6-6--|
E|-----3--3-3--3-3----4--4-4--4-4----3--3-3--3-3----4--4-4--4-4--|

"You don't know how beautiful you are..."

	G		A#		D#		F
e|-----3--3-3--3-3----6--6-6--6-6----6--6-6--6-6----8--8--8--8--8-|
B|-----3--3-3--3-3----6--6-6--6-6----8--8-8--8-8---10-10-10-10-10-|
G|-----4--4-4--4-4----7--7-7--7-7----8--8-8--8-8---10-10-10-10-10-|
D|-----5--5-5--5-5----8--8-8--8-8----8--8-8--8-8---10-10-10-10-10-|
A|-----5--5-5--5-5----8--8-8--8-8----6--6-6--6-6----8--8--8--8--8-|
E|-----3--3-3--3-3----6--6-6--6-6----x--x-x--x-x----x--x--x--x--x-| 
Repeat the Pre-chorus sequence one more time and finish with a G.

Next up, Edge plays a clean mini-solo with delay (~410 ms):

Mini-solo:

e|-----8(8)-----8(8)------8(8)-|
B|-9(9)----8(8)------7(7)------|
G|-----------------------------|
D|-----------------------------|
A|-----------------------------|
E|-----------------------------|

These parts return for a while and then the band goes into a stomp-break before the final chorus.
Edge is shredding (very fast strumming) for the solo bit while stomping away on his wah-wah pedal.
Additionally, you can perform some vibrato and bending notes if you like.
Please note that the following notes are played several times so just use this as a guide.

Break Solo:

e|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-15-----------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-------9--10--9--7-5----9---10-9-7-5----9--10--9-7-5----9-10-12-14--|
D|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------------------|

After that it's time to finish it off with the chorus riff repeated until the end.
This small hammer-on fill is played during the last lines.
End fill:

e|-----|
B|-----|
G|-5h7-|
D|-----|
A|-----|
E|-----|
Repeat a couple of times.

So ultimately, this is the structure of the song:
1. Intro (Main riff)
2. Verse (no guitar)
3. Chorus 
4. Verse
5. Pre-Chorus
6. Mini-solo
7. Verse (no guitar)
8. Chorus
9. Pre-Chorus
10. Chorus
11. Break solo
12. Final Chorus (Hammer-on fills)

Ah I didn't know that it premiered on itunes first.


Figured out the bass today, it's a little different than the guitar part but not much.

Main Riff:
G|----------------------------------------|
D|----------------------------------------|
A|-5-3---0-3-0-5------3-0-3----3--0-------|
E|-------------------------------- -3-3---|


Chorus:
G|------------------------------------
D|------------------------------------
A|------------------------------------
E|-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-|-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4

G|------------------------------------
D|------------------------------------
A|------------------------------------
E|-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-|-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4

G|------------------------------------
D|------------------------------------
A|------------------------------------
E|-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-|-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6

G|------------------------------------
D|------------------------------------
A|-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-|-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8
E|------------------------------------
