Chord Progressions for....


Goldberg

Recommended Posts

Hey, I'm not great at theory, more particularly chord progressions, but I'd like to try and imitate U2's Where the Streets Have No Name, you know, in the first minute and 10 seconds or so where the pad is playing those chords (and later the organ joins in). Could someone help me out with these chords?

Maybe these guys are talking about what you need. They say this progression is well used. Kcbass

I don't know the song but I just listened to the first 30 secs at a CD site (not sure if I heard the actually beginning as the song fades in, then out). Anyhow this is what I could determine under less than ideal circumstances:

 

This will be right hand chord starting with the lowest note/left bass note:

 

EAD/D, EAC#/D, EAC#/G, DGB/G, DF#BD/B (Bm chord), EAD/A, EAC#/A, ADG/D, ADF#/D...

 

You can figure it out ryhthmically.

Which lines up with the variation on the verse theme.

 

EAD/D = Dsus2

EAC#/D = Asus4 (the D insinuated)

EAC#/G = A7

DGB/G = G

DF#BD/B = B minor

EAD/A = Asus4 (no 3rd)

EAC#/A = A

ADG/D = Gsus2

ADF#/D = D
