“One” by U2

  • by

Difficulty:Intermediate

This is a rather lengthy lesson so it has been broken down into parts.
The first section we are covering today will be the Intro, 1st Verse,
and 1st Chorus. The next section will cover everything else.

There are 3 guitar parts:

  • Electric Clean (Guitar 1)
  • Electric Distorted (Guitar 2)
  • Acoustic Guitar (Guitar 3)

In future sections the bass line appears, but not until later.

Intro

Usually we seperate the parts, but in this case you will need to see
how each line up together. The intro riff that is in 3/4 time isn’t
at the beginning for looping purposes. However, you’ll notice that it
repeats the same intro at the end of the intro going into Verse 1.
