WAKE UP DEAD MAN - U2
 
 --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: Frank
Email: frankmagnussen@hotmail.com
Tuning: standard
Here is the version of "Wake up dead man" from the Slane Castle DVD. It's played in a
key (e-minor) than on the Pop-album.
I've only tabbed the first verse and chorus here, since the rest of the song is played
same way. On the Slane version they only play the first two verses and choruses, but the
here can of course be used to play the entire song. It should be 100% correct.
Note the difference between a-minor in the verse and A-major in the chorus. Watch the
for timing and strumming patterns. Also, note that the song is NOT tuned down half a step
is usual when U2 play live.
Verses:
[Em] [D]  
 
 e|------0-------0-------0--------0-----2--------2-------2---------2--|
