Love Is Blindness

U2

 

 

Bm A

Love is blindness, I don't want to see

G Em

Won't you wrap the night around me

Bm F# Bm

Take my heart, love is blindness

 

In a parked car, in a crowded street

You see your love made complete

Thread is ripping, the knot is slipping, love is blindness

 

Love is clockworks, and cold steel

Fingers too numb to feel

Squeeze the handle, blow out the candle, love is blindness

 

Love is blindness, I don't want to see

Won't you wrap the night around me

Oh my love, blindness

 

C G/B

A little death, without mourning

F# Bm

No call, and no warning

C G/B

Baby... a dangerous idea

F#

That almost makes sense

 

Solo: Bm A G Em Bm F# Bm

U2: Love is blindness (live solo)

 

Tabbed by Lars Barstad (lapba@grm.hia.no)

 

This is what I could make out from the video of the sydney
show...

 

The first part is played with a delay (of course), and The Edge
picks each

note quite a few times before SLIDING to the next note... To get
the timing

right, listen to the version on Achtung Baby (note that the ending
of the first

part is different from what is played live, and the second part is
faint on

the album version). The transcription of the first part in
particular shows you

which notes to play rather than HOW to play them...

 

 

1st part

repeat this twice..

 

E-|-------------------|------------------------|------------------------------|

2nd part of solo starts here!

 

repeat this for a while... then repeat this a few times

Love is drowning in a deep well

All the secrets and no one to tell

Take the money, honey, blindness

 

Love is blindness, I don't want to see

Won't you wrap the night around me

Oh my love, blindness

 

End: Bm A G Em Bm F# Bm

 

 

Love is Blindness(live version) by U2

 

Transcribed by Richard Zangoli.

This is a transcription (as complete as I can make it) of the
version that

U2 of this song that U2 played during the Zoo TV tour. I
transcribed it from

the version on the U2 Live in Sydney video version but other
versions,

except perhaps in some parts of the solo, are quite similar. It is
to be

used in conjunction with the previous chord transcription by H Nye
which is

on the Archive. Tune down half a step.(note that I haven't tabbed
all the

strings all the time)

 

Organ intro arranged for guitar-

E-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

B-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

G-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

D----16---14---12---11----11h12s/14--16--14--12--11--11h12s/14--16--14--12--11

A-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

E-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

E-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

B-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

G-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

D---11h12s/14--16(hold)-------------------------------------------------------

A-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

E-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Edge then comes in with his guitar. The verse chords in the
previous

transcription sound right but Edge plays it differently live. He
bars the

7th fret, forms a Bm chord and then plays the chords arpeggio
style, keeping

his index finger barring the 7th fret. These sound like the chords
that he

uses-(I don't know their real names-apart from Bm which is just a
Bm- so

I'll use the standard names used in the previous
transcription)-

Bm (799777), A(xx7777), G(x107777), Em(x77777), F#(x911777). Play
these

arpeggioed chords in the manner and order as in Nye's
transcription for the

verses (ie. Bm,A, G, Em, Bm,F#,Bm). When the arpeggio is played,
make sure

that you initially sound the first or first couple of notes of the
chord so

that the chord change can clearly be heard.For the bit that goes
"a little

death.." do the same type of thing using these chords(they sound
OK but you

may want to try some thing slightly different)- C(877777),
G/B(x107777),

F#(x911777) and Bm(799777). Play them in the same progression as
in the

previous transcription. (ie C, G/B, F#, Bm, C,G/B,F#).For the
arpeggio parts

you may wish to capo the 7th fret to make playing them easier. If
you do

though you might want to change where you play the solo on the
fretboard.

 

Now to what you might call Edge's mini solo-

 

E-10--9--------------------------10--9-------9h10--10------10--9h10p9----------

B--------12--12--12--12
-12---------------------------------------------12--12-

G------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

E------------------------------------------------------------------------------

B--12---10--10--10-------------------------------------------------------------

G-------------------12--12--12--11--11--11--12--12--12--11--11--11--12--12--12-

 

After this go back to the arpeggio chords but this time play them
a bit

louder and let the notes ring out a bit more.Now for the main
guitar

solo(listen to the song for the timing)-

 

E------------------------------------------------------------------------------

B---15--15--15--15--15--15s/7--7--7--7--7--7--14--15--14-14-14s/--7--7--7--7--7

G------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

E------------------------------------------------------------------------------

B-14--14s/15--15--15--15--15--15s/7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7s/15--14--14--14s/--7-7

G------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

E------------------------------------------------------------------------------

B--7--7--7s/14-15--15--15--7--7-7-7--7--7--7s/15--14--14--14--14--14--14s/17-17

G------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

E------------------------------------------------------------------------------

B--14--14--15--15--14--14--15--15--15--17-17-15--17--17--19--19--19--19--19----

G------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Then play this (or something similar)-

E-----------------------
12-----------------------------12---------------------

B---s/14--15--15--14--15---------14--15--15--14----15--------------------------

G------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Play it a few times gradually more aggressively, starting to bent
the B

string towards the end when you play it. In the middle of
repeating this

riff Edge also plays this once(listen out for it)-

E----------------12----------12--12------------------

B---14--15--14---15---14-----15--15--14--------------

G------------------------------------------------16--

 

After playing it quite a few times he goes to this-

E--------17-------------17-----------17-----------------------19------------19-

B-s/19------------19-----------19------------19-------17---------------17------

G------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

E-------19-----------------------------------17--------------17---------------17

B-17-----------17s/--------------------s/19--------------19--------------19----

G------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

E-------17-----------------19-----------------19---------21--21--21--21s/19--19

B-19---------------17------------------17--------------------------------------

G------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

E----------17---------17--------------17---------------------19-----------19---

B-s/19-----------19-------------19---------------17------17----------17--------

G------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

And then play something similar to the riff that Edge already
played, for

example,-

 

E----------------------------------------------------12------------------

B------14--14--15--15--14--15--14--15--15-----------------15-------------
etc..

G------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

And now this is the final bit (I'll only tab the last 3
strings)-

 

D---s/9(hold)-----(9)s/11s/12s/14s/16(hold)----16h17p16--16(hold)s/17s/19(hold)-

A-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

E-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

D------21--21--21---19--17--16h17--16--14--12h14--------12h14p12--11------------

A-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

E-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

D---11h12p11---9(hold)-------------

A----------------------------------

E----------------------------------
