Mid 90's and KGSR in Austin, couldn't escape this song... and it was a great thing.

Saw them in Chicago in January, not much left of the original band, but this song still rocked.

I'm a big fan of the ol' dotted-delay trick; when I got my first delay pedal I figured it out as soon as I could and played with it obsessively for months.  The idea is that you play straight quarter notes (or eighth notes, just a consistent rhythm), and set the rate of the delay to 1.5x that tempo (i.e. dotted quarter/eighth), so the "echoes" from the delay come back halfway between the notes you are playing, so it sounds like you are playing twice as fast as you actually are.  It really feels awesome and you can produce all sorts of interesting results that I could write a page or two about.  I'm not really a U2 fan...go figure. Edge pretty much always strums chords with the delay, but in this song I hear a lot more use of arpeggios and melodic playing which takes quite a bit more skill in my opinion.  I've already admitted I'm not a U2 fan, but I would have to say I prefer both the song and the guitar playing to U2 in this case.

Original recording of this is great. This live version has the singer sounding like he's bored of singing this for the 9 millionth time.

And yes, their drummer is fantastic.

The digital delay trick is a common practice these days by many guitarists. David Gilmour comes to mind..."Run Like Hell", "Another Brick in the Wall"...etc. Of course, The Edge overused this...low and behold who's next here....hahahaha....Bill has the same idea.

 
Yes, it ihas been a popular effect for a while, and The Edge did use it a lot, to the point where some people think he invented the sound.  But as you know, delay effects with guitars have been around for a while. Robert Fripp and John Martyn were using Echoplexes and other tape-delay effects with their guitars since the early 1970s,

That's a great song BTW.

That guitar and drum run is about 20 minutes too short.
