New Years Day Live Tab

Song:   New Year's Day (Live)
Artist: U2
Album:  U2 go Home - Live From Slane Castle, Ireland
Tabber: Andrew Marks

To be honest I cannot work out Edge's sound for this song.
I like to term the sound as 'Toxic'. I can say though that
Edge uses a hefty amount of reverb, and I think probably 
a little delay effect too.

Tune your guitar down 1/2 step.

As soon as the piano riff ends, Edge instantly

(Add some mutes maybe on some upstrokes,
works well in this fast tempo riff.)

This part is played by muting the string
whilst also sliding up and down the fretboard.
"Under a blood red sky..."

As Bono finishes talking about McAteer and Edge finishes
the piano riff, he then plays this riff on guitar:

I think this tab is extremely accurate, it is just
a matter of making the right sound. Anyone with any
idea how to get a replica sound please e-mail me at
