This is another backing track I made to give back to the community for letting me use great backing tracks for so many years. This backing track is the Joshua tree tour 2017 edition which means there is a piano section. There is a two bar intro to the backing track. I hope you enjoy!

My second contribution to our Cover Album Project Band's March album. Another u2 tune. This time, I went back to what I think is the heart of these cover song projects... in my case, one man, one guitar, one take. Ok, so there were two takes, and they were composited together, but it's much closer to the one man, one guitar, one take submission than I've been making lately. This is the second version I recorded of this song. I did one a day or two ago and it was just too clippy/distorted to keep. This isn't ideal, but it's okay for "free." You can see, I also did the picture-in-picture addition of the little guitar picking bit in the same style that others have been doing. So, yes, all video and audio editing was done in iMovie for this one. Not too bad for an hour or so of work.

This is a collaboration with Mick (mick3b1g) who lives 3,000 miles away from me across the Atlantic and whom I've never actually met in person. Mick played Bass and Drums whilst I played the guitar as seen in the video. For the guitar part it is simply Clapton Strat - Eventide TimeFactor - Vox AC4TV amp.

Here's a version of The Fly, inspired by live version performed by U2 on the Elevation Tour (2001). I don't play it exactly like Edge here (plus there are certainly plenty of mistakes). I also recorded/programmed percussion, bass guitar, and backing vocals. I used my remote rack wah prototype, controlled by a Boss FV300L. I used 3 patches for this (with some variations). Intro tone (also used on chorus): POD HD500 (instead of Eventide H8000...which I don't have), Filter Factory, DL8000R Main Riff: POD 2.0 (Brit Hi Gain), DL8000R Solo: TS-808 clone, remote wah (sometimes), POD 2.0 (Line6 Insane), DL8000R All feeding AC30TBX and 5e3 Deluxe. Of course after uploading I watched the Elevation Miami video of The Fly and can see clearly how I'm playing the solo wrong... :)

http://www.TotallyGuitars.com Learn to play In God’s Country and Running To Stand Still by U2 with this acoustic guitar lesson preview. Full lesson found at https://goo.gl/jrwMWP Visit the site for free guitar lessons, TARGET program, forum, community, and contests. In God’s Country and Running To Stand Still are songs by Irish rock band U2. Both songs are taken from their best selling, fifth 1987 studio album ‘The Joshua Tree’, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary. Besides appearing on the same album, and even though one is quite faster than the other, both songs feature the same feel as well as the same key. Like several U2 songs, when stripped down, they turn out to be relatively easy to play. This lesson covers the progression, the chords in the key of D, the double time strumming, and also takes, for vocal reasons, a short look at how to play them in the keys of G and A. http://www.TotallyGuitars.com Complete Free Lessons Community Chat Room Forum Your Own Blog Recommend A Lesson Membership is free http://www.TotallyGuitars.com join now!

U2’s fifth album called The Joshua Tree was released in 1987. This record made U2 global megastars and one of the greatest rock band of the world. The band will celebrate the 30 year anniversary of the album with a special tour in North America and Europe in 2017. I myself also would like to pay tribute to this wonderful album with this cover project of The Joshua Tree. I will release one song cover every month. I will use a new audiovisual technique and enhanced bass for the recording. Follow me through the year and let’s enjoy the songs of The Joshua Tree. "In God's Country" is a song by Irish rock band U2. It is the seventh track from their fifth studio album The Joshua Tree and was released as the album's fourth single in November 1987 in North America only. "In God's Country" was a difficult song for the band to record, which they attributed to not being trained musicians, and they do not speak very highly of it. During The Joshua Tree sessions, they knew it was not going be one of their best songs but they needed more uptempo songs. It was developed out of Bono's frustration at trying to get "a bit of rock 'n' roll out of [U2 guitarist] the Edge". Bono tried to inspire the Edge by teasing and playing on his competitive instincts by claiming to be a better guitarist. Of the song, Bono said "[My] lyric was really good, the tune is pretty good, and the hook is pretty average - thanks to the Edge." "In God's Country" was recorded in the basement of the Edge's house, which producer Daniel Lanois called a "muggy little room where everything sounds dead" and "not a particularly inspiring place". Despite the location, he said the recording worked because of the "spontaneity and lack of pressure", which contributed to a good take, a quality Lanois favours to overplanning the recording setup. In producing the song, he used a collection of channels in the mixing console designated as sound treatments to adjust the tone of the Edge's guitar to give it a "beautiful shimmer", which he thought contributed to the song's mood. Lanois said, "What was a fairly straightforward rock track is now undermined by a mood of unrest", which inspired lead vocalist Bono to change his lyrics to give them more dimension. Bono has stated that he originally didn't know whether the song was about Ireland or the United States, but eventually dedicated it to the Statue of Liberty. The song characterises the United States as a "desert rose" and a siren whose dress is torn in "ribbons and bows." The lyric speaks of a lack of political ideas in the West which Bono later contrasted to the revolution in Nicaragua where he had travelled during the recording of The Joshua Tree. Along with "Where the Streets Have No Name," the lyrics and sound of "In God's Country" reference the desert in accordance with the band's wish for The Joshua Tree to have a "cinematic" sense of location. Played in the key of D, the verses of the studio version alternates between D and A minor chords. The first chorus repeats an Em–G–D chord progression while the second chorus repeats a C–G–D progression. "In God's Country" was released as a single in Canada and the United States in November 1987. The cover art (photographed by Anton Corbijn), sleeve (designed by Steve Averill), and B-sides ("Bullet the Blue Sky" and "Running to Stand Still") were identical to those used for U2's 1988 single "One Tree Hill," released only in New Zealand and Australia. The Canadian release was available on 7", 12" and cassette, while the US release was limited to 7" only. "In God's Country" reached number 44 on the Billboard singles chart and number 48 as an import in the UK. Sales of the single may have been hampered by the fact that its b-sides were two tracks from The Joshua Tree album instead of the usual non-album tracks. An abridged live version of the song recorded on the Joshua Tree Tour appeared on the band's 1988 rockumentary, Rattle and Hum, but did not appear on the accompanying album of the same name.

For my friend Spike over in Italy :) going for a bagpipe tone. used a modified Fender lead 1. I routed for 3 pups like a start and routed the body for a start style input jack. pups are leftover hot pups. lil59 in bridge . I used the axe2 for the tone using a overdriven guitar with 2 delays one is for warmth set to around 400ms second delay is set to 60ms and its very wet for a bathtub sound. Then I added a pitch block fixed tuning using octave up and a faint octave down. I detuned the crap out of the craves..THATS the key in my opinion. single notes sound good chords not so good

I've been on a bit of a U2-related nostalgia trip ever since I played with the band last month, and have been revisiting the album that first inspired me to learn how to play guitar. I wasn't able to throw together a backing track this weekend for Beautiful Day (the very first U2 song I learned how to play), so I figured I'd just quickly record this for now: a mix of the acoustic and Elevation Tour versions of Stuck in a Moment, both of which I listened to and played incessantly way back in 2001. Enjoy! NB: I realize after uploading this that there's one chord that's slightly off in the chorus. In my defence, it's hard to erase almost fifteen years of incorrect muscle memory. :P

U2’s fifth album called The Joshua Tree was released in 1987. This record made U2 global megastars and one of the greatest rock band of the world.

I myself also would like to pay tribute to this wonderful album with this cover project of The Joshua Tree. I will release one song cover every month. I will use a new audiovisual technique and enhanced bass for the recording. Follow me through the year and let’s enjoy the songs of The Joshua Tree. "Bullet the Blue Sky" is a song by rock band U2 and is the fourth track from their 1987 album, The Joshua Tree. "Bullet the Blue Sky" is one of the band's most overtly political songs, with live performances often being heavily critical of political conflicts and violence. The song was covered by Sepultura in their covers album Revolusongs, by P.O.D. in their album The Fundamental Elements of Southtown and Queensrÿche in their album Take Cover. "Bullet the Blue Sky" first originated as a demo recorded during a jam session at STS Studios in Dublin with producer Paul Barrett prior to the proper Joshua Tree recording sessions. As guitarist the Edge played a riff, bassist Adam Clayton and drummer Larry Mullen Jr. joined in playing. According to the Edge, at the time he was irritated that the rhythm section was playing in half-time, thinking "What the fuck are they doing?", and he considered stopping the jam. Lead vocalist Bono recalled that Clayton was playing in a different key from the Edge. After the take was completed, the band listened to playback in the control room and realized that the demo was "absolutely brilliant". Compared to the final version of the song, the Edge described the demo as a "much more bare-boned, like a heavy funk track". In July 1986, Bono and his wife Ali travelled to Nicaragua and El Salvador, where they saw firsthand the distress of peasants bullied by political conflicts and United States military intervention. The trip angered Bono and formed the basis of the song's lyrics. In August, after reconvening with his bandmates in Dublin to resume work on The Joshua Tree, Bono instructed the Edge to "put El Salvador through an amplifier", resulting in the song's harsh, feedback-charged guitar part. The Edge said that his guitar playing was also informed by Bono's lyrics.

Gear used (in this order): Gibson Explorer, Psionic Audio Triad, Fractal Audio AXE-FX This was recorded in my much less spacious dorm type room at school. I do not have the space to use an amp so I recorded directly from my AXE-FX into my computer. The sound is much clearer than my previous videos because I am not using the internal mic on my Macbook. Further information concerning Edge's sound can be found here: http://launch.groups.yahoo.com/group/U2_recording/ or http://www.u2sound-forum.com/forum/cgi-bin/ikonboard.cgi? Col. 1:21-22
