New Years Day

U2

 AmCEm
 All is quiet on New Year's Day
 AmCEm
 A world in white, gets underway
 AmCEm
 And I want to be with you, be with you night and day
 AmCEmAm
 Nothing changes on New Year's Day
 Em
On New Year's Day
Chorus:
 GAm
 I will be with you again
 GFAmCEm
 I will be with you again  
 AmCEm
 Under a blood red sky
 AmCEm
 A crowd has gathered in black and white
 AmCEm
 Arms entwined, the chosen few
 AmCEmG
 Newspaper say, says, say it's true, it's true
 Am
 And we can break through
 GF
Though torn in two, we can be one
 GAm
 I, I will begin again
 GFAmCEmAm
 I, I will begin again, yeah   
Repeat Chorus and fade out
...
Piano part tabbed out for guitar (makes a nice addition to the piano part)
e--------------10--12-----8--10--7--------
A----------10-----------------------------
G-----------------------------------------  Repeat about 3 times
D-----------------------------------------
B--12-------------------------------------
E-----------------------------------------
e--8-8-7--7--7--7-8-10--12-10-8--10-8--7-8-5--8-7-----------------
A-----------------------------------------------------------------
G-----------------------------------------------------------------
D-----------------------------------------------------------------
B-----------------------------------------------------------------
E-----------------------------------------------------------------

That's an easy way to do it, Edge throws some high (~15 on a guitar)
notes during live performances, which sound to me to be chaotic, but we
all know Edge...
The solo:
e--19--15--17--12--15--10--12--7-----------
A------------------------------------------
G------------------------------------------Bar the bass strings and slide up
D-------------------------------------1/13-as a transition between
B-------------------------------------1/13-the two repeats, sounds
E-------------------------------------1/13-cool.

Repeat once more.
Second part:
B------5-2-5-7-0-2--------5-2--10-10-9/5-10-9-9/2-10-9-9-10-12-10
E--0-5--------------0-2-5--------------------------------------------

or
B------5-2-5-7-0-2--------5-2--10-10-9---10-9---10-9-9-10-12-10
E--0-5--------------0-2-5---------------10-----7----------------

I like the first method because it looks cooler when you play it.
Verses: (This is the way Edge does it live, it's not on the album/single
versions)
These are played after the line is finished; listen to UABRS
and pick it up.
All is quiet on New Year's Day...

I got lazy after figuring out the solo tab, so there are varies palm
mutes and more repeats on the verses/chorus parts than what I put down,
but it's very easy to pick up on from the album, or especially a live
version.
All the rest of the song's little fills and riffs that you hear are those
two chords, Dsus4 and Esus4. The other chords listed in the lyrics above
are correct, but they are useful as a key guide only, or perhaps an
acoustic version...

Hello this is Ian Smistad from Calgary Alberta Canada .I noticed that there was
something wrong with the solo from "New Years Day" so I decided to fix It.
The first part is OK except for one little thing
e--19-15-17-11-14-9-12-6-------
A------------------------------
G------------------------------
D------------------------------
B------------------------------
E------------------------------

The second part sounded WAY off when I tried to play along to the song. You could
either put the capo on the 4th fret (and figure out the rest of the chords) or
just do in the hard way.
B------9--6--11--4--6-----9-6-14-14-13/9-14-13-13/6-14-13-13-14-16-13
E--4--9--------------4-6-9-------------------------------------------

As for the rest it looks pretty good from here!
Please mail me with any comments or suggestions. I would like to get to meet some
other U2 fans from around the world!
