In this I Will Follow guitar lesson video, I will show you how to play this early classic from U2 note-for-note.
First, we will be using the original Eb tuning. That will be, starting from the 6th string, (Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb).
The Edge dominates this track with a powerful two string main riff. Throughout the song, he will play this riff with some slight variations and I will explain those when they pop up.
There are also a few guitar overdubs, especially during the verse and chorus sections. I will demonstrate how to play both parts even though it will sound fine just playing the highest guitar part, especially if you are playing along with a bass player.
The verse and chorus sections are very similar as well. In addition, there are a few variations played in which I will demonstrate.
The middle bridge section consists of some easy natural harmonics and shouldn't cause you too much trouble.
I think this would be a great song for the upper-beginner and above level guitarists. It is a lot of fun to play no matter what your level is.
