Some Days Are Better Than Others Music by U2 Lyrics by Bono Copyright 1993 Transcribed by Brandon Leniart This isn't the greates track from "Zooropa", but it is still a good song. I think we all can identify with Bono's lyrics in the song. First, the song is tuned down 1/2 step, with a drop D--so the strings are (lowest to highest): Db, Ab, Db, Gb, Bb, Eb. Also, the guitar part in the chorus needs some delay (like any respectable U2 song) to sound right. The solo in the middle and outro must have all the distortion you've got, so turn it up loud! Bass intro (don't forget to tune drop D 1/2 step down): "Some Days" bass intro correction: 1---------------------------------------------------------- 2---------------------------------------------------------- 3---------------------------------------------------------- 4---------------------------------------------------------- 5---3/5---0---3---3---3---5-------------------------------- 6-----------------------------------------------------0---0 (repeat through verse, with one change during the 3rd line) Some days are dry, some days are leaky Some days come clean, other days are sneaky Bass: 1-------------------- 2-------------------- 3-------------------- 4-------------------- 5---3/5\-------3/12\- 6-------------------- Some days take less, but most days take more Some slip through your fingers and onto the floor Some days you're quick, most days you're speedy Some days you use more force than is necessary Some days just drop in on us Some days are better than others Chorus (with delay): 1-------12---------14---------12---------10---9---7---5-10--- 2---14--------14---------14---------14----------------------- 3------------------------------------------------------------ 4------------------------------------------------------------ 5------------------------------------------------------------ 6------------------------------------------------------------ Some all adds up And what you've got is enough Some days are better than others Some days are slippy, other days sloppy Some days you can't stand the sight of a puppy Your skin is white, but you think you're a brother Some days are better than others Some days you wake up with her complaining Some sunny days you wish it was raining Some days are sulky, some days have a grin And some days have bouncers that won't let you in Some days you hear a voice Taking you to another place Some days are better than others Solo (with lots of distortion): 1------------------------------------------------------- 2---7b(8)---7------------------5---7b(8)---7b(8)---7---- 3-------------------------7----------------------------- 4------------------------------------------------------- 5------------------------------------------------------- 6------------------------------------------------------- 1-------------------------------------------------------------- 2------------5---7---7b(8)---7b(8)---7b(8)---5----------------- 3---7----------------------------------------------------7----5 4-------------------------------------------------------------- 5-------------------------------------------------------------- 6-------------------------------------------------------------- 1------------------------------------------------------ 2---7---8---7---8---7---8---7-------------------------- 3-----------------------------------------------------8 4------------------------------------------------------ 5------------------------------------------------------ 6------------------------------------------------------ For the last verse if you listen closely, you can hear Edge playing an overdub with similar distortion during Bono's vocals: 1--------------------------------------------------------- 2---12b(14)------12b(14)---10----------------------------- 3--------------------------------------------------12---11 4--------------------------------------------------------- 5--------------------------------------------------------- 6--------------------------------------------------------- Some days you work, most days you're lazy Some days you feel like a bit of a baby Looking for Jesus and His mother Some days are better than others Some feel ahead You're making sense of what she said Some days are better than others Some days you hear a voice Taking you to another place Some days are better than others (the outro solo is pretty much the same thing as the solo in the middle, so work with that and have some fun) -- Leniart, Brandon K [email protected]
