Van Diemens Land (ver 4) by U2

U2 - Van Diemen's Land (by The Edge)


Original Key: #F major (with all string's tuned half step down). 
But if you can reach the high note, why bother. Just stick to
standard tuning (G major key).

To get the authentic flavour of this simple yet great song done by
The Edge of U2, one needs to understand a few key characteristics
of the chords employed.

1) All G chords are played with D on B string (see chord shapes below)
2) C2 shape used for all G-C2-G transitions
3) Play the /G  /B bass notes right, leading to Em chord
4) Appreciate the use of C chord as transition in between Em and G.
   Compare with playing without it, and you will see the magic touch
   of the true Master - The Edge rules!

Hi. My name is Jeff Hao. I arrange songs for easy piano solo and chords 
and put them on Hao Staff (a kind of piano tab that anyone can read and
play). Check out www.haostaff.com (All free downloads).

In my work, I need to figure out the chords first (accurately). I will 
start to share all my work here for the guitar players. You will notice 
the unique format I came up for myself in matching the chord change with
the right word (or part of the word). Being a guitar player, I find this
format much easier to read and sing along. It also shows the chord
progression structure more clearly for easier memorizing. Enjoy!
