U2 tabs

God Part II guitar chords

God Part II live version, transcribed by Collin Burgemeestre

  You can follow for the most part Richard Zangoli's transcription, I only
try to add those parts which U2 added for their Lovetown live shows. For this
transcription I used the new years night show in Dublin, except for the final
part.

Some stuff:
s/  slide up  \s  slide down
/bu bend up   \bd release bend


The first verse is bass, bassdrum and Bono only. During the second verse the 
Edge plays this

             Don't believe in forced entry
E--3-3-3-5\s---------------------------------------------------------------

Just before Edge enters the main riff he plays this fill.
B----13--13---
G----11--11---

For the main part see Richard Zangoli's transcription. After the final verse 
comes Edge's solo.

This is Edge's solo:

E---s/10-10-------------------s/10-10-------------------------------------
B-----------13/bu-\bd-10-10-----------13/bu-\bd-10-10---s/15-15-15--------
G-------------------------------------------------------------------------

E-----------------------17----17----17----17----17----17----17----17------
B-s/17-17-17-s/20-20-20----20----20----20----20----20----20----20----20---
G-------------------------------------------------------------------------

E-17----17----17----17----17----17-20/bu-20-
B----20----20----20----20----20-------------
G-------------------------------------------

Now comes the really fast part. I don't have clue but this comes close.
E-20-17-20-17-------------------------------------------------------------
G-------------20-17-20-17-------------------------------------------------
B-------------------------19-17-19-17-------------------------------------
D-------------------------------------19-17-19-17-------------19-17-19-17-
A-------------------------------------------------19-17-19-17-------------
E-------------------------------------------------------------------------

                   This part seems to vary during shows, I like to do this. 
E--------------------15-14-12----12-------12---------15-14-12--------------------
B-----------------12----------15----15-14----15-14-12---------15-14-12-------14\s
G-19-17----------------------------------------------------------------12----14\s
D-------19-17-------------------------------------------------------------14-14\s
A-------------19-----------------------------------------------------------------
E--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thats it. If anyone can come up with a better part of that final lick I would
really like to now.

God Part II by U2, Transcribed by Richard Zangoli

Another awesome U2 track which, I believe, in hindsight gave an early
indication to the change in the U2 sound between Rattle and Hum and Achtung
Baby. This is what I could come up with. I'll tab some of the bass for the
intro verse. I think it's tuned down half a step.

                                              Bono starts singing somewhere here
A-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
E--5--5--5--5---5--5---5--5--5---5--5--5--5---5--5-5---5--5---5---5---5--5---5--

    Don't believe in excess success...                    Don't belive in
riches  
A--5--5--5---5--5---5--5---5--5--5---5--5--5--5--5------------------------------
E--------------------------------------------------------5--5--5--5--5--5--5---
          I                        I                believe in love
A-----7--7--7--7--7--5--5--5--5----------------------
E--------------------------------------5--5--5--5--5-5--

The simple yet awesome guitar riff is then played-

E-----------------------------
B----12--14----s/12----14---    and so on and so forth.
G----12--14----s/12----14---
D----12--14----s/12----14---
A-------------0-------------0--
E------------------------------

When Bono sings "I, I ,I , believe in love" you can play something like-

E-------------------------------------------------------
B---9---------7------10--10--10---------10--10------
G---9---------7---------------------12-----12--12--11--  and then go back to
the 
D---9---------7---------------------------------------      main riff
A---7---------5-----------------------------------------
E--------------------------------------------------------

This is the guitar bit where Bono keeps singing "loooove, loooove"
E------------------------------------------------------------------------8-----
B--s/10--s/10--8---10---------s/10--s/10--8--10-------s/10--s/10---8--10----10--
G------------------------9(?)---------------------------------------------------

The next bit sounds like-
E----------------------------------------------------------
B---------------------------------------------------------
G---------------------------------------------------------
D---7---7---7---7---7---7---7---7------------5---------- and so on and so
forth. 
A---x---x---x---x---x---x---x----x----5h7----------------   Then play E A bar 
E---5---5---5---5---5---5---5----5----------------------       chords
                                                                            
          then it goes briefly goes back to the riff above
                                                   .

Right at the end there is something that sounds like-
E-------------------------------12--12--12--12--12-----
B---15--15--15--15--15--15--15--15--15--15--15-----
G---14--14--14--14--14--14--14--14--14--14--14------
D-----------------------------------------------------------

That should have most of the guitar parts. Hope you like it. Bye.

 "God Part 2"
  ----------
chords by: Sergio Lucero, slucero@cipres.cec.uchile.cl



 E7
Don't believe the devil, I don't believe his book
But the truth is not the same without the lies he made up
 A
I don't believe in excess, success is to give
  E7
I don't believe in riches, but you should see where I live
 B (Bb) A            E7
I......I believe in love

I don't believe in forced entry, I don't believe in rape
But every time she passes by, wild thoughts escape
I don't believe in skid-row, death-row or the gangs
I don't believe in the Uzi, it just went off in my hand
I......I believe in love

I don't believe in cocaine, I got a speed-ball in my head
I could cut and crack you open Do you hear what I said ?
I don't believe them when they tell me there ain't no cure
The rich stay healthy and the sick stay poor
I......I believe in love

I don't believe in Goldman, his type like a curse
Instant karma's going to get him if I don't get him first
I don't believe in rock 'n roll can really change the world
As it spins in revolution, spirals and turns
I......I believe in love

I don't believe in the 60's, the golden age of pop
You glorify the past when the future dries up
I heard a singer on the radio late last night
He says he's going to kick the darkness, until it bleeds daylight
I......I believe in love

I feel like I'm falling I'm spinning on a wheel
It always stops beside me with a presence I can feel
I......I believe in love
