U2 — Cartoon World bass tabs

U2: Cartoon World
From the Album(s): "Boy (Deluxe Edition)" & "The Dream Come True Volume 1"



NOTE: Because "Boy" only has "Cartoon World" and "The Dream Comes True" has the
entire Dublin concert, the timing may be off by a second or so for people listening
to "The Dream Comes True" version.

Cartoon World is a 1980 live song by U2. It has never been recorded in the studio,
and has only been recorded from U2's 1980 concert at Dublin's National Stadium. This,
along with Jack In the Box, are the only two songs played at the concert which were
never recorded. (Though many tracks played in this concert underwent lyrical and
name—related changes.) It is often considered U2's first signature song (alongside
"The Fool"), and what many people believe to be the inspiration for "Out of Control".
It also features Adam Clayton's first bass solo, which is 24 seconds long.

Learn the three riffs above and you're good for ALMOST the entire song. May it be
noted that in order to play the song correctly, you have to return from the first
fret on the D string to the third / first fret on the the A string really fast. It
takes practice doing this without running into other strings ;)

....The rest of the song basically repeats that same rhythm with different lyrics.
(The first prelude is not used throughout the rest of the song.) Now it's time to
speed ahead to Adam's solo.
