Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses?

Band :  U2
Song:  Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses
Tuning:  EADGBE
Tabbed by:  Jeff Martin

Haven't seen a good (any?) tabs on this song yet, so I'll give it a go.  Here is my interpretation...

Opening:

Listen to the song for timing on each of these chords.

0:06
|----------------|
|-0-0-0-0-0-1----|
|-x-x-x-x-x-0----|
|-0-0-0-0-0-2----|
|-2-2-2-2-2-3----|
|-3-3-3-3-3-x----|

Verse 1

0:31
|------0-0-0-----------------------------------2-2-2-2-2---------------|
|---1--1-1-1-----------------------------------3-3-3-3-3---------------|
|---0--0-0-0---0---------------0---0-----------2-2-2-2-2---------------|
|-0-2--------0-2--------2-2-2--------2---------------------------------|
|-2-3--------2-3--0-0-0-3-3-3----0---3-2--0--------------3-3-3-2-0-----|
|-3----------3----3-3-3----------3-------3---3-------------------------|

Verse 1 (second part)
Listen close, Edge or a 2nd guitar is playing variations of this riff behind the G and C chords.
Pick up the rythym of the open G and C chords from the song...

1:08
  G/////////////////////C//////////////////////
|------------------------------------------------|
|------------------------------------------------|
|------------------------------------------------|
|------------------------------------------------|  X4
|-0-9--9-9-9-7-9-7-0-10--10-10-10-9-7-0-6--------|
|------------------------------------------------|

Pre-Chorus

Use open Chords
D////C////D////C

Chorus:

Guitar 2:

G/////D/////C...


Edge sound like he's playing:

****(the Zero = the 10th fret)*****
1:44
|-0-0-0-0-0--0-0-0-0-0--7-8-8-8-8--7-8-8-8-8-----|
|-7-8-8-8-8--7-8-8-8-8--8-8-8-8-8--8-8-8-8-8-----|
|-7-7-7-7-7--7-7-7-7-7--7-7-7-7-7--7-7-7-7-7-----|  X4
|------------------------------------------------|
|------------------------------------------------|
|------------------------------------------------|


Verse 2 = second part of verse 1 (above)

Chorus 2 = same G-A-D for Guitar 1

Edge:

**** 0=10th fret, 2=12th fret, 3=13th fret, 5=15th fret (better tab spacing I guess)****

It's all happening on the 7th and 12th frets...

2:49
|-0-0-0-0-0--0-0-0-0-0--5-5-5-5-5--5-5-5-5-5--------|
|-7-8-8-8-8--7-8-8-8-8--2-3-3-3-3--2-3-3-3-3--------|
|-7-7-7-7-7--7-7-7-7-7--2-2-2-2-2--2-2-2-2-2--------| X4
|----------------------------------------------| |--|
|---------------------------------------------------|

Bridge

3:18
|------------------------|
|-----5-----3------------|
|----5-----4-----5-------|
|---5-----5--------5--7--| X2
|--------------5---------|
|-5-----0----------------|

Finish the bridge with this, watch the volume, this part starts faint and picks up as 
chorus comes back in...

3:47ish
|-10-|
|-8--|
|-7--|
|-7--|
|----|
|----|

Back to chorus riffs... etc

That's about it.  All the parts are here!  Seems pretty close.  Other tabs seem to have 
the chord correct.

Enjoy
