Love Is Bigger Than Anything In Its Way
« on: December 14, 2017, 01:38:03 PM »
I was playing around with this song earlier on my acoustic and I found that if you play barre chords but leave the top E and B strings open it starts sounding a little like Stay (Faraway So Close)

Lots of U2 songs sound good if you leave those E and B strings open - including this one!  I also like playing Stuck in a Moment in standard tuning with the top 2 strings open - I think Edge plays it in open E tuning, but I prefer my version in standard. 

I note that the chords used in both Stay and LIBTAIIW are similar - E, F#m, A, B.  Stay has a C#m, as well, I think?

Do share some chords/tabs for the songs on the new album if you have any  :)

This is yet another grower for me.  Damn this is a good album!

There's a G#m in both songs. Unsure on the C#m.
