You're The Best Thing About Me
« on: October 30, 2017, 06:38:31 AM »
I've tried to start with The Best Thing. It's an easy song, so this one wouldn't be too hard to figure out.

I had an hour left over on school, so I tabbed these out of my head. I'm not sure if I remember the chords and tabs well, so there could be mistakes and tabs could be a fret higher or lower. I will fix that later if I have a guitar in my hands again; won't be a big deal.

I'm asking for your help for Chorus part II and Bridge. I just can't figure these out.


U2 - You're The Best Thing About Me

Standard tuning

Verse (Chords):
e|--2--2--|-5--5-5--7--7-7-|-2-2--2-2-2-2-|
B|--2--2--|-6--6-6--9--9-9-|-2-2--2-2-2-2-|
G|--4--4--|-7--7-7--9--9-9-|-4-4--2-2p4p2-|
D|--2--2--|-7--7-7--9--9-9-|-2-2--2-2-2-2-|
A|--4--4--|-5--5-5--7--7-7-|-4-4--4-4-4-4-|
E|--2--2--|-5--5-5--7--7-7-|-2-2--2-2-2-2-|

Chorus Part I:
e|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
B|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
G|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
D|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
A|-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-|-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-|-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-|-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-|
E|-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-|-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-|-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-|-7-7-7-7-5-5-5-5-|

Chorus Part II

Can't get these tabs. It's some playing on the e-B-G snares around the 9th and 13th frets, but what exactly; I don't know.


Solo Part I:
e|---------------|------------|-----------------|------------|
B|---------------|------------|-----------------|------------|
G|---------------|------------|-----------------|------------|
D|---------------|------------|-----------------|------------|
A|-10-9-10--9-10-|-5-4-5--4-5-|-13-12-13--12-13-|-14-12-11-9-|
E|---------------|------------|-----------------|------------|

Solo Part II:
e|-----------------|------------|-----------------|------S-F----|
B|-----------------|------------|-----------------|------T-A----|
G|-12-11-12--11-12-|-7-6-7--6-7-|-15-14-15--14-13-|-16---R-S----|
D|-----------------|------------|-----------------|------U-T----|
A|-10-9 -10--9 -10-|-5-4-5--4-5-|-13-12-13--12-13-|-14---M-!----|
E|-----------------|------------|-----------------|-------------|

Bridge:

Can't get these tabs either. I think Edge is playing other chords and his fingers stay around the 0th and 5th fret.


I hope you can help me with the missing parts  :)

For the first pdf: those are indeed the mistakes I made because I tabbed them out of my head. The second chord was too high, and I missed a part in the first half of the chorus :-[.

The second pdf is very helpful! Wondering if that solo is right, but it sounds good. I will add it later. Thanks! :)

I guess you mean the verses, right? I've tried it (for about 5 minutes ;D), too. It's quite hard to find out (chords are pretty hard to find for me). But I'll try somewhere this week :).

Use the same chords as the original version. The first chord is only the E and G snare used, the other two chrods are played the snares B, G and D (and in that other after each other. Use the E snare as bassline and slide).

The refrain is the basicly the same as the solo. The chords (didn't check this with music) for the second half of the refrain are (alternate the chords of one couple (-)): G-F#, F#-E, A-F# and then B-A-G-F#. The last time play B a while. Play the chords in F-shape. So they are fretted as follow:
E: 0
F#: 2
G: 3
A: 5
B: 7

The edges part is as follow:
The same chords, alternate from the next snares: B-E-B-G-E. The last chord (the fourth time you play that figure) you should alternate between the 2nd and 3rd fret on the higher e-snare.

I understand that these are just discriptions. But I hope it'll give you some clues. Tabbing this is too much work for this evening (and too hard to do on my phone, haha). Maybe you could check and correct those chords in the verse, it's not my strongest point.  ;)
