(repeat chorus until the end of the song) Comments: This bassline is pretty simple, but it goes by fast. I wrote the measures as sets of 3 quarter notes (counted: ONE, two, three, ONE, two, three...) but often, especially during the verse and solo, it's jazzed up a bit. So the bassline: --0-0-0--0-0-0--0-0-0--0-0-0-- is sometimes played: --00--0-00-0-0--00--0-00-0-0-- But it's up to you to decide when and where to switch it up. Generally, the simpler version is played while Bono is singing. That's all. Enjoy. Tabbed by Jeff Feasel [email protected] 02/08/99
