It is true my music taste are wide and varied, and I am a very proud U2 fan biggrin.gif
The Edge is the man who made me want to pick a guitar up, and in my eyes I think hes pretty awsome!

For me the Edges playing is all about setting the right mood for the song, and he is full of originality in his playing smile.gif

Do we have any U2 fans at GMC? David O where are you? wink.gif

Anyway i thought i would share some vids, maybe this will be the first time some younger GMC'ers hear U2 biggrin.gif

Bullet the Blue Sky Live@ Sydney - Love the blusey solo here at around 1:56 - very cool

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2uTwspjawLI

Where the Streets have no Name live @ Slane Castle - This is beautiful, I love Bonos intro and the Edge sets the mood well with his classic delay driven riff's

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uDkBzkA9L4s

Elevation live @ Slane Castle - This is basically a rock song, I think he uses his "big muff" here laugh.gif

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5lCXB_68VfQ

Until the End of the World live @ slane castle - a personal fave, and a classic Rock song!(ill take that les paul goldtop thankyou wink.gif )

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ejJdfkFjKCA

Love is Blindess live @ Sydney - another personal fave, the solo (@ 3:19) is simple yet beautiful and played with soul smile.gif Bono gets a girl up from the audience and dances with her as usual! haha

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P8oy0nR1Nhw


I hope you enjoy these as much as i have cool.gif

U2 isnt a band that i listen to every day ,but i think there a great group and they have there own style.Also the edge has made hisown style on guitar which i think is great.Overall there really good people and a great band.Anytime i want to listen to something mellow there a good band to listen to. smile.gif

Figure out what you want in life early.Wether it's the girl,the partying
or mastering the guitar.Adding any 2 together will get in your way.

I was never that much of a fan of U2, not my type of thing, but they are quality band no doubt. Edge's playing is unique and this is what counts in the end, what you do with what you got and will it be good for other people to enjoy in your work.

I really like The Edge's clean tone. Is so fresh and clean, and, at the same time, full of power. He can create a lot of atmospheres with only that tone. Amazing
