Trond Mannsverk ([email protected]) A Sort of Homecoming (Live) Words : Bono Music : U2 Transcribed : P Dagnall. The opening riff is a typical chordal pick that Edge is renownd for, and if you look closely and are familiar with Sunday Bloody Sunday (and who wouldn't be !!), it is the same pattern, just picked in a different way. This is played over the 1st verse, and after the middle 8, and during the outro. Riff 1 : -------0-----0---------0-----0---------0-----0---------0-----0-------------- -----3-----3-----3---3-----3-----3---3-----3-----3---3-----3-----3---------- ---4-----4-----4---2-----2-----2---0-----0-----0---2-----2-----2------------ ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- "And you know it's time to go . . ." The next riff is played over G. Riff 2 : -------------------5-----7---5---------------------------------------------- -------8-----8---8---8---------8---8---------------------------------------- -----7-----7---7-------7---------7------------------------------------------ ---5-----5------------------------------------------------------------------ ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- "Oh, oh, oh on border land we . . . " "I'll be there, I'll be there . . ." The next riff is played over D. Riff 3 : ---------10-------10----------------10-------10----------------------------- ------10-------10-------10-------10-------10-------10----------------------- ---11-------11-------11----11-12-------12-------12----12-11----------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- "Run, and still we run, we run and don't look back . . ." Finally the outro riff is riff 1, with this added variation. Outro : -------0--3--2--- -----3----------- ---2------------- ----------------- ----------------- ----------------- ---------------------------------------------- A Sort of Homecoming (live) Transcribed by Richard Zangoli([email protected]) This is a transcription of the live version of the song that appears on the Wide Awake in America CD and on the Unforgettable Fire video. Most of the song involves playing chords arpeggio, so this leaves a lot of room to ad lib, but I think my transcription is reasonably close to the money. As always with U2 live versions, tune down 1/2 a step. Intro riff- E------------0---------------0-----------0--- B-------3---------------3------------------- G---4--------------4--------------4----------- E--------------0----------------0------------0---- B---------3---------------3------------------------ G---2----------------2----------------2---------- Play the intro riff over and over again for the first verse and then when Bono starts to sing "ohhh, ohhhh, on borderland..." play Riff 2 (involves some finger stretching!) Riff 2- E-------------3-----------3------------5(hold)-----7p5--- B--------3---------------------3------------------------- G---0----------------0------------------------------------ E-----------5--------- B-----------------3--- This is played twice. G---0----------------- The next riff that is played I will call Riff 3. Riff 3- E----------------10----------------10-------------10-- B----------7-----------------7------------------------ G-----7-----------------7------------------7----------- E--------------10-------------------10------------10-- B--------8-------------------8------------------------ G---7------------------7--------------------7--------- This is also played twice. Riff 2 and Riff 3 are then played again. Then for the next verse Edge strums the intro chords loudly, letting then ring. That is G(?) (XX0430) and Dsus2 (XX0320). Listen to the song for when and how they are played. After this there isn't really anything new, except for a Cmaj7 (X3545X) that is played a couple of times when Bono sings "I'll be there tonight....". For the ending, play the intro riff and then at the very end ad lib with it. If there are any questions don't hesitate to e-mail me, at [email protected] A Sort of Homecoming Music by U2 Lyrics by Bono Transcribed by Andy Aledort, sent in by Brandon Leniart This is the song that Rolling Stone #443 called "fussy and unfocused", yet it keeps in the U2 tradition of the first-song-on-the-album-setting-the-mood. This is in D major, and there was nothing wrong with Scott Yanoff's version, it just didn't have any tabs. If it makes it easier, learn these chords then apply them to the previous version. Tune down 1/2 step for the LIVE version on "Wide Awake In America".
