Lesson notes

In God’s Country and Running To Stand Still are songs by Irish rock band U2.

Both songs are taken from their best selling, fifth 1987 studio album ‘The Joshua Tree’, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary.

Besides appearing on the same album, and even though one is quite faster than the other, both songs feature the same feel as well as the same key. Like several U2 songs, when stripped down, they turn out to be relatively easy to play.

This lesson covers the progression, the chords in the key of D, the double time strumming, and also takes, for vocal reasons, a short look at how to play them in the keys of G and A.
