    Hi

    Anyone know what's being played around 0.42 mark? I'd appreciate any tab. I've got the main riff down but struggling to get that quiet part.

    it looks like he may have tuned up a half step. im almost sure of it.

    If you slow down the video you should cop those licks easily. :) Also, unless The Edge has tuned down for this song and the player in the video is in standard tuning, I don't understand why he would be tuning up. If The Edge is tuned down, the post above about why it sounds different makes sense. Happy playing.

    I played along in standard and it was spot on. thats why I thought the guy was tuned up. he might even be in some sort of open tuning.
