Well, thanks to the always informative Carter Alan at WZLX in Boston, I was reminded that the guitarist from U2, The Edge, turned 50 yesterday. Congrats to him! In his honor, and frankly because I am always looking for an excuse to learn some new songs on the guitar, I am working on learning and playing the following:
- One (how could it not be first ;-))
- I Will Follow
- Sunday Bloody Sunday
- Angel of Harlem
They are all purported to be relatively easy (check out the link to Three Chord Guitar for One) to learn and they’re all great tunes, so I figured it was a good place to start. Let me know if you have suggestions for other playable U2 songs that sound good on solo guitar; I would love to know your favorites too.
