Intro to Running to Stand Still by U2

A few notes:  There is more than one guitar playing but I stuck most all of 
it on one line.  There are some ragged background bits I left out.  If you 
want you can play those bends on the A string to go easier on your 
fingertips. The slide-bends are smoothed out so it sounds like a full bend. 

Most importantly, the whole song is a 1/2 step up.

^  trill
/  bend up till it sounds right
x  pick scrape

e---------------------------------3^-----------------------------------------
b------------------------------------3^--------------------------------------
g--x/12-----------/----------0)-------------/--7--------/\---------/\------/-
d--x/12--0----0--3----(0--0-------------0--3------0--3s5--5s3--0--3----0--3--
a----------------------------------------------------------------------------
e----------------------------------------------------------------------------
                      ^listen carefully          ^synth comes 
                       for this.                  in here (D).

Oh incidentally, the little transition between chords is this:

e----------   The reason it's so high up the frets is that it's done with 
b------10--   the keyboard, which is playing the equivalent of E-barre D's
g--11------   and G's at the 10th and 3rd frets, respectively.  

The chords can be found in joshua_tree.tab. They were done by Jacob 
Mattison (jacob@cs.swarthmore.edu), who I don't know personally but I 
think he's a cool guy that should get credit for his work.

Corrections and comments welcome.
