Lesson notes

This lesson covers Angel Of Harlem and Desire by one of the best selling music artists of all time, U2. They’re taken from their sixth album Rattle & Hum, which was released in 1988.

The lesson is based on how they perform it acoustically, and when stripped down they appear to be, like many U2-songs, very easy and straightforward, which is the reason why this lesson contains two songs.

We mainly take a close look at the strumming and the progression. Angel Of Harlem is in the key of C, using chords I, IV, V and VI and is also very easy to transpose.

Desire consists of only three chords, E, A and D major, but the fast chord changes might be challenging for beginners.
