BEAUTIFUL DAY ------------- Artist: U2 Album: All That You Can't Leave Behind Drummer: Larry Mullen Jr. Timing: 4/4 Tabbed by: Joe Tucker ([email protected]) This is but my suggestion as to how it's played, because it's hard to decipher a few parts of this song. This is really a tab for how they play it live, with a lot of help from the original album version. Key: C: Crash R: Ride H: High hat (x = closed; o = opened) T: Tom S: Snare drum FT: Floor tom B: Bass drum DT: Drumset tambourine For the 1st verse, i've tabbed how it's played live. If you want to get a sound like on the album, don't open the hats at all. And, in case you're wondering, it's a "German drum" in the background. If you wanna play something that sounds similar, just translate that rythym to the bass drum.

The album repeats this 15 times, but on the live recordings i have, it sounds like these 2 bars repeat 21 times.
