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.
