With or Without You – U2

U2. Arguably the biggest band in the world. Certainly one of the most popular live acts of recent years.

Back in March 1987, U2 released the massive album “The Joshua Tree” and With or Without You was the first single taken from this album. The album itself was recorded in Windmill Lane Studios in Dublin with Daniel Lanois and Brian Eno producing & Flood (yes, that is his name!) on engineering duties.

The drum part to this is simple and is a wonderful example of how to play for the song without getting in the way. Although the dynamics are not written, use your ears and listen to the build of the track. Start softly and build slowly.

Above all, enjoy playing this seminal song!
