U2 tabs

Sunday Bloody Sunday bass tab

"Sunday Bloody Sunday" by U2
Bass Tab
Here's a major correction on the previous tab... mostly I got this
by deconstructing a MIDI file.  It should be pretty accurate since I
also fine-tuned it with a songbook.

Tune down 1/2 step - Eb Ab Db Gb

Key
---
w - whole note
q - quarter note
e - eighth note
s - sixteenth note
/ - slide


  The bridge at the beginning
  goes something like this...
  just match it with the guitar chords.

G:------------------------------|
D:------------------------------|
A:5--5--5-7-7-7--5--5--7--7--7--|
E:------------------------------|

   Solo (sort of)                             
   This happens three times in the song, but I usually
   just improvise a bit.

Sunday Bloody Sunday
Performed by U2

G|---------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------4-4--------4-4----------|
A|-1-1--1-4-4---4----------4-------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------|

That's pretty much how the whole song goes. The chorus is the normal
riff played backwards.
