"40" guitar chords

"40" (The Popmart version)

By Jon Ivar Kolstad     jonivar@kolstad.no

Tune the guitar down 1/2 step (More or less....The Edge sometimes uses a tone 
higher then 1/2 step)

I use:

Korg SDD-3000 with 450 ms delay


The "~" means: Go from 5th fret to 3th fret. 


Riff 1:

e-----------x
b-----------5~3_2_3
g-----------2
d-----------2
a-----------x
E-----------x

This is Riff 1, the intro riff.
But i have no idea how to explain the rythm, or when to hit each strings, 
so you'll have to listen to the song to get it right, i suppose.


There is both strumming and picking in this song.

The chorus riff :

Riff 2:

e-----------x
b-----------3~2_3
g-----------2
d-----------4
a-----------5
E-----------x

You can barre the entire 2th fret, and play it like sort of a C chord, 
if you know what i mean.


This is roughly all of it........

Here are the lyrics, and when to play the riffs:


                     Riff 1                       
"I've waited patiently on the Lord.....
                     Riff 2
he inclined and heard my cry........
                     Riff 1                 
he lifted me up out of the pits.....
                     Riff 2
out of the   miry clay....."


      Riff 1    (reapeat all the way until Riff 2)                          
"And i will sing.......sing a new song.......i will sing......
                                         Riff 2     
sing a new song.........How long.......to sing this song.......how  

 Riff 1                Riff 2      Riff 1             Riff 2       
 long.....to sing this song......how long......how long.......
 Riff 1            Riff 2                              Riff 1
how long.....how long......must we sing this song......."


(Play Riff 1 while waiting for the second verse to start)

        Riff 1                          Riff 2                  
"He set my feet upon a rock......made my footsteps firm......
    Riff 1                          Riff 2
many will see.....many will see and hear.......


 Riff 1         (reapeat all the way until Riff 2)                       
"And i will sing.......sing a new song.......i will sing......
                                           Riff 2       
sing a new song.........How long.......to sing this song.......how  

 Riff 1                Riff 2      Riff 1             Riff 2              
 long.....to sing this song......how long......how long.......
Riff 1            Riff 2                              Riff 1
how long.....how long......must we sing this song......."


The song fades out with The Edge playing Riff 1, 
and Bono singing: "How long....", and letting the audience 
sing along from there.......

As the last riff of the song i use this:

 
e-----------x
b-----------2
g-----------2
d-----------2
a-----------4
E-----------5

(Strum the riff once, and let the delay fade it out)



That is about it, i guess......i'm horrible with tabs......
please let me know of any mistakes.

Hope you like it.......

Thanks!

Jon
