The Play With U2 Tab books/CD

Have you guys seen these new tab books/CD?? Holy freaking shit, man, unbelievable! If you really want to nail the Edge's playing to some of their best songs you've got to get these books.

I bought the 1980-83 book and I'm blown away. Man, can this guy play U2! Awesome stuff.

Now that is really nifty that they come with a backing track CD.

Does the book also tell which effects and settings to use?

Thanks for the links. Now that is really nifty that they come with a backing track CD. Are they based on the live or album versions? Does the book also tell which effects and settings to use?

They are all studio versions. You won't believe how exact they are with the whole band playing.....so damn good....everything but vocals. It may as well be the Edge....there's no way to tell it's not! And the backing tracks are real solid (no guitar on the backing tracks).

The tab is freaking perfect and the detail regarding palm muting, delay effect to use, etc is spot on.

So far I've only gotten the 1980-1983 book but I'm expecting 1984-1987 in the mail tomorrow. If you really want to nail the songs that these 2 books cover then do yourself a favor and get them.

One more thing, I consider myself a pretty decent guitar player and I'm telling you I had no idea a few of these songs were so tough!! Electric Co. and the harmonic parts in Gloria are a bitch.....gonna take me a little longer than I thought!

I got one from MusicDispatch.com ($21 total) and the other from ebay ($16 total).

Or you could unclench the padlocks on your wallet and spend $20.

Put it this way, if you walked into Guitar Center and an instructor said to you, "For $20 I'll teach you the exact way to play every note of Electric Co, Out Of Control, Gloria, NYD, I Will Follow, 2 Hearts, and Sunday Bloody....would you do it??? Of course you would!!

Because that's precisely how good these books are. I've been working on the 1980-1983 book and I can guarantee you there isn't a better way anywhere of learning these tunes. Unless, of course, the Edge himself taught you.

Have you checked out www.mysongbook.com? Are the songs any better that you have?

Honestly, the books are indeed better. These books are perfect. For $20, you just can't go wrong.

Well, I just got my 1984-87 book and it's solid. If you're having trouble with any of these songs it's a worthy buy.

Personally, I like the 1980-1983 book better because the songs on it are much more difficult to figure out from tab on the net. This book made me see these songs in a way I had never seen them. Songs like Gloria and Electric Co are awesome in this book...it is MUCH easier to follow along than it is with just tab on the net.

Merry Christmas!!!


Ok, you cheap bastards, you win. Here are the full band versions (minus vocals) for Gloria, Electric Co, and Out Of Control from the Play Guitar With U2 books. Again, the book also has full backing tracks but I'm not posting those.

Like I said, the tab in the book is dead-on for everything you hear. Remember, Electric Co is identical to the STUDIO version, not live. All you have to do is get the "Cry" intro from the web and you'll be all set.

Hope you enjoy these.....

Thanks for sharing these mate. The backing tracks I've heard seem to have a bit too much guitar. I just stick to making my own. Saves cash

These aren't backing tracks. These are full band versions (minus vocals) that come with tab. The books also include backing tracks only - no guitar. I did not post these.

I know, I was talking about some of the actual backing tracks without guitar. I have a few of them & they have some guitar on them albeit low in the mix.
