Some Days Are Better Than Others

Music by U2
Lyrics by Bono
Copyright 1993
Transcribed by Brandon Leniart

This isn't the greates track from "Zooropa", but it is 
still a good song.  I think we all can identify with Bono's 
lyrics in the song.  First, the song is tuned down 1/2 
step, with a drop D--so the strings are (lowest to highest):
Db, Ab, Db, Gb, Bb, Eb.  Also, the guitar part in the 
chorus needs some delay (like any respectable U2 song) to 
sound right.  The solo in the middle and outro must have 
all the distortion you've got, so turn it up loud!

Bass intro (don't forget to tune drop D 1/2 step down):

"Some Days"  bass intro correction:
1----------------------------------------------------------
2----------------------------------------------------------
3----------------------------------------------------------
4----------------------------------------------------------
5---3/5---0---3---3---3---5--------------------------------
6-----------------------------------------------------0---0
(repeat through verse, with one change during the 3rd line)

Some days are dry, some days are leaky
Some days come clean, other days are sneaky

Bass:

1--------------------
2--------------------
3--------------------
4--------------------
5---3/5\-------3/12\-
6--------------------

Some days take less, but most days take more
Some slip through your fingers and onto the floor

Some days you're quick, most days you're speedy
Some days you use more force than is necessary
Some days just drop in on us
Some days are better than others

Chorus (with delay):

1-------12---------14---------12---------10---9---7---5-10---
2---14--------14---------14---------14-----------------------
3------------------------------------------------------------
4------------------------------------------------------------
5------------------------------------------------------------
6------------------------------------------------------------

Some days...it all adds up
And what you've got is enough
Some days are better than others

Some days are slippy, other days sloppy
Some days you can't stand the sight of a puppy
Your skin is white, but you think you're a brother
Some days are better than others

Some days you wake up with her complaining
Some sunny days you wish it was raining
Some days are sulky, some days have a grin
And some days have bouncers that won't let you in

Some days you hear a voice 
Taking you to another place
Some days are better than others

Solo (with lots of distortion):

1-------------------------------------------------------
2---7b(8)---7------------------5---7b(8)---7b(8)---7----
3-------------------------7-----------------------------
4-------------------------------------------------------
5-------------------------------------------------------
6-------------------------------------------------------

1--------------------------------------------------------------
2------------5---7---7b(8)---7b(8)---7b(8)---5-----------------
3---7----------------------------------------------------7----5
4--------------------------------------------------------------
5--------------------------------------------------------------
6--------------------------------------------------------------

1------------------------------------------------------
2---7---8---7---8---7---8---7--------------------------
3-----------------------------------------------------8
4------------------------------------------------------
5------------------------------------------------------
6------------------------------------------------------

For the last verse if you listen closely, you can hear Edge 
playing an overdub with similar distortion during Bono's 
vocals:

1---------------------------------------------------------
2---12b(14)------12b(14)---10-----------------------------
3--------------------------------------------------12---11
4---------------------------------------------------------
5---------------------------------------------------------
6---------------------------------------------------------


Some days you work, most days you're lazy
Some days you feel like a bit of a baby
Looking for Jesus and His mother
Some days are better than others

Some days...you feel ahead
You're making sense of what she said
Some days are better than others

Some days you hear a voice
Taking you to another place
Some days are better than others

(the outro solo is pretty much the same thing as the solo 
in the middle, so work with that and have some fun)
