EXIT (LIVE)

U2

Tabbed by jules 

The version tabbed here is from the Rattle and Hum video though
most live versions of this song are similar. A version I have
from Rock's Hottest ticket has a slight variation that I have
tabbed in. The song is played live tuned down half a step
but my video of R+H is in normal tune (don't ask me why).

The song starts with Adam playing this bass riff1: (play each
note many times)
G--------------------------------------------------
D--------------------------------------------------
A----7-7-7-7--\--3-3-3-3--/--10-10-10-10-----------
E--------------------------------------------------

Edge plays this Riff1 on his Les Paul:
E--------------------------
B--------------------------
G--------------------------
D----9-8p7\5--4h5p4--2-----
A--------------------------
E--------------------------

He then slides up the fretboard and plays Riff2:
E--------------------------------------------------
B--------------------------------------------------
G------<12>----<12>---------<12>----<12>-----------
D--<12>----<12>---------<12>-----<12>--------------
A--------------------------------------------------
E--------------------------------------------------

Follow this by playing the big E:
E---------------------------
B---------------------------
G---------------------------
D---------------------------
A---------------------------
E--0--0------0--0-----------

Play Riff 2 again, then Riff1.

Edge then starts playing this semi-muted Riff3:
E----------------------------------------------
B----------------------------------------------
G-------9-9----9-9-9-9-----9-9----9-9-9-9------
D----------------------------------------------
A---7-7-----7X---------7-7-----7X--------------
E----------------------------------------------

He scratches the strings somewhat with Riff3 and palm mutes
a bit also. Keep playing Riff3.

When Bono sings "Beating, beating, beating, Oh my love, oh
my love.." Edge plays the 1st solo, tremelo pick these
chords E, G, B, E finishing with one strum of the E5:

    E    G    B    E        E5
E---X----X----X----X--------0-----------
B---X----X----X----X--------0-----------
G---9---12---16---21--------4-----------
D---X----X----X----X--------2-----------
A---7---10---14---19--------------------
E---X----X----X----X--------------------

For the version of this song on Rock's Hottest Ticket Edge
plays this instead for the 1st solo (it's a gradual octave
slide from Bb to E while constantly strumming):
                                  E5
E---X---X---X---X---X---X---X-----0-----
B---X---X---X---X---X---X---X-----0-----
G---3-/-4-/-5-/-6-/-7-/-8-/-9-----4-----
D---X---X---X---X---X---X---X-----2-----
A---1-/-2-/-3-/-4-/-5-/-6-/-7-----------
E---X---X---X---X---X---X---X-----------

After this first solo Adam plays this:
G-----------------------------------------------
D-----------------------------------------------
A----7-7-5-7-7-7------7-7-5-7-7-7---------------
E----------------0----------------0-------------

Edge plays Riff1 then some of Riff2 before picking Riff3
again then...

For the second solo play the tremelo chords again E, G, B, E
then tremelo pick these notes, finishing with an extensive
strumming of the E5 chord:

                            E5
E---15--17--15--15---19-----0-0-0-0------0-0-0-0---
B----X---X---X---X----X-----0-0-0-0------0-0-0-0---
G----X---X---X---X----X-----4-4-4-4------4-4-4-4---
D----X---X---X---X----X-----2-2-2-2------2-2-2-2---
A--------------------------------------------------
E--------------------------------------------------

Just before the end of the 2nd solo add this bit:
                        E5
E-----------------------0----------
B-----------------------0----------
G------<12>----<12>-----4----------
D--<12>----<12>---------2----------
A----------------------------------
E----------------------------------

Play Riff 2, Riff1 and Riff2 again.

For Van Morrison's version of 'Gloria' Edge keeps silent
then starts playing the E5 chord. Finishing off with (listen
for the timing):

E----0----0----0----0----0-------0-0--
B----0----0----0----0----0-------0-0--
G----4----4----16-/-4----4---4-4------
D----2----2----14-/-2----2---2-2------
A-------------------------------------
E-------------------------------------

That's about it.

Music by U2
Lyrics by Bono
Transcribed by Ken Chipkin, sent in by Brandon Leniart

"This is a story about a religious man who became a very 
dangerous man when he couldn't work out the mystery of the 
hands of love."  That's how Bono described this song about 
a man who lost it and shot his wife.  It's in E minor.

You know he got the cure
You know he went astray
He used to stay awake to drive the dreams he had away
He wanted to believe in the hands of love

His head, it felt heavy as he came across the land
The dogs started crying like a broken hearted man
At the howlin' wind, at the howlin' wind
He went deeper into black, deeper into white
We see the stars shine like nails in the night
He felt the healing, healing, healing, healing
Hands of love like the stars, shiny, shiny from above
Hand in the pocket, finger in the steel
The pistol weighed heavy 
In his heart he could feel was beating
Beating, beating, beating
Oh my love, oh my love, oh my love, oh my love

You know he got the cure...but then he went astray,
    C                               G
He used to stay awake to drive the dreams he had away
     Em                      C          G
He wanted to believe in the hands of love...

His head it felt heavy as he cut across the land
A dog started crying like a broken hearted man
At the howling wind... the howling wind

He went deeper into black, deeper into white...
he could see the stars shine like nails in the night
He felt the healing, healing, healing, healing hands of love
Like the stars shiny, shiny... from above.

He put his hands in the pocket, his finger on the steel
The pistol weighed heavy, his heart he could feel
Was beating, beating, beating, beating oh my love
Oh my love, oh my love, oh my love.

(He saw the hands that build could also pull down....
The hands of love)
