They could afford to lose a guitar and still play on but if the drums got smashed the concerts over.

Option 1. What's the use of starting something that they're not going to be able to finish?

Of course, that doesn't mean I'd just play Edge's part...

I'd probably want to play a song they hadn't played in awhile.  Though I'm no virtuoso, so I'd probably need to stick with All I Want is You.  (I assume it'd be an acoustic.)

Otherwise, the Fly, baby.

No. 5

That's why I said smash it up because of no.5 and I would want to try and look rock n roll

I'd start playing Satellite of Love most likely.

My guitar skills are pretty mediocre but I can kind of play One decently and I know Running to Stand Still. I know the bass line for Some Days Are Better Than Others so I might just start playing that and see what happens.;)

I'm a drummer at heart so I'd rather have the chance to try that. I'd love to play Out of Control with them.

I'd be in trouble if they got mE on stage as I'm like Bono. In that I can't play guitar  ;-)

I think I'd start playing "Grace."

Start playing a song that U2 has not played in a long time?

Bono to security: 'Confiscate the guitar and get this deeps*** outta here!'

I'd give back the guitar and start playing Running to Stand Still on the piano...  ;D

THe only U2 thing  know on guitar is the I Will Follow intro riff so I would play that until Bono kicks me off stage

I dream about this often. Maybe try a little 'People Get Ready' for ol' times sake.

I would give the guitar back, walk up to the mic, and start singing Lemon with the best falsetto I have.

Post by: satellitedog01 on April 11, 2013, 12:47:03 AM
You just gave me the idea to try playing Lemon in the style of Sunday Bloody Sunday on acoustic guitar. The verses would sound good, but I'm not sure about the pre-chorus bridge and the chorus.

Although it would be similar to this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-pCZ5E5tn4I

I think I read somewhere that someone who was pulled on stage somewhere started playing A Sort of Homecoming making the band scramble to play a few bars themselves.

It's really not that hard, at least as far as I've learned it.  If you know the "D minor" chord shape, you're pretty well set.
