When I learn to play one, I'll let you know.

Wait that requires a guitar doesn't it? Darn.

Shaun Vox,

The numbers represent what fret you should be on.

The six lines represent the 6 strings, the bottom one is the Low E.

so for example:

0
0
1
2
2
0

would be an E chord!

I usually play Running To Stand still first because I find it easier to sing cold, but First Time is the U2 song I can play that makes me feel the best.
The only other ones I know anywhere near what you might call "a bit" is One and SBS. I'm a lousy guitar player but I love to sing. I've been working on Peace On Earth since I got the album, but I can't get the low notes at the start good fun trying if no one is listening though.
uh oh you got me started.
It's school holidays here, birthday sleepovers etc. One lad inspired my youngest to learn Eric Clapton's "Tears In Heaven". He only downloaded the tab yesterday, but it's sounding good already. I wished he played more.
I love guitars that's for sure.My beloved will be 47 tomorrow, wish I had a nice Gibson 5 string for him.

umm what was your Q mikal? oh yes U2.
I saw a U2 songbook recently, nice, but pricey. I'll stick with the 3 chords, they get me by

The first song I learned to play on the guitar was "I Will Follow". I usually don't learn songs 'cos I'm always making my own, but the ones I've learned include "Ultraviolet", "Love Rescue Me", "All I Want Is You", "Walk On" and "Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses". Ah, and "Creep" by Radiohead and "Música Ligera" by Soda Stereo.

'In A Little While' is fun to play. I also LOVE to play the solo from 'The Fly', absolutely amazingly brilliant!!!
