Quick / Rough guitar cover for an old favorite... it's been over 20 years now? Wow, I feel so old.
Guitar: Fender American Standard Strat. Set to 2nd Position on pickups (Bridge+Middle), tone set to ~6/10 to cut down on high piercing frequencies which I really don't like on Strats or Teles... warms up the tone nicely.
Using a blue Herdim pick, which is key to obtaining the Edge's chimey raspy sound.
Digitech RP250: Delay set to 350ms, ~ 8 repeats, ~85% volume on the repeats. Some reverb, and very slight vibrato, as well as compressor.

Part A1: Where the Streets Have No Name (U2 Cover) - Axe-Fx and Liverpool
Updated cover of U2's "Where the Streets Have No Name." Part A1 of updated guitar tutorial. There are a few minor mistakes here, as I was just practicing and it turned out to be an ok take. Tone is based on Slane Castle live version, but not exactly the same. Recorded entirely with Fractal Audio's Axe-Fx Ultra (delays and reverb) and Tech 21's Liverpool (amp modeling). See www.u2guitartutorials.com for more information.

U2 - Where The Streets Have No Name - Guitar Cover
My guitar cover of Where The Streets Have No Name by U2. Fender Stratocaster + DigiTech RP 80.
The settings of the RP 80 in my recording are: Pickup/Wah - OFF, Compressor - 13, Amp - U1, Noise Gate - G9, Chorus/Mod - h3, EQ - b5,d5,t6, Delay -- d9 / 370 ms, Reverb - H5, Expression - hy / HE=1 / to=99. The Expression is linked to the Chorus/Mod and it is for the Whammy effect on the 3rd verse. The correct way (The Edge does it) is to do it with the gitar whammy bar. If you do it like me with the peddal, you play the song with the pedal UP and use it in the 3rd verse. Guitar - I used the bridge and the middle pickup, the tone knob in the position 10

Today's video guitar lesson is not only a lesson on playing the intro to "Where the Streets Have No Name" by U2, but also how to achieve the same dotted 8th note delay effect The Edge uses throughout.
This delay effect guitar sound is so essential to how you actually play the riff that any lesson on how to play it would be incomplete without the knowledge of how to achieve that tone.
Be sure to download the PDF above that lays out the simple math formulas needed in order to know how to set up a dotted 8th note effect no matter what you tempo you are playing in or what type of delay device you own.
After you have your tone dialed in, actually playing the riff is quite simple.
We have a series of 6 repeated notes that just seem to float over the underlying chord progression implied by the bass guitar. This kind of musical effect is very common in U2's music and of course countless other bands that have utilized the technique since then.
Be sure to articulate the guitar lines accurately so that all of the notes pop out nicely. Besides the delay, try to use a single coil guitar with the pickup selector in the 2nd position.
Alright that is about it, have fun with this Where The Streets Have No Name guitar lesson video and remember, after learning the intro, try coming up with your own timed delay effect riffs. Fair warning though, playing with this type of tone can certainly become addicting. :)
And another classic from my favorite Band, i guess thats my all-time greatest hit. Sorry for my sloppy playing, i am lazy sometimes, i made also a couple of mistakes. Anyway i love to play it.
