Novice guitar question

I'm just starting to learn how to play guitar and I was attempting to play Miracle Drug but there was something in the tab I didn't understand.

e |---------------------------7---|
B |---------10--------------------|
G |-(7)-7-------9----7/9-7--------|
D |-------------------------------|
A |-------------------------------|
E |-------------------------------|

What am I suppose to do for the parentheses and the 7/9 If anyone can help me out, I'd appreciate it.

parentheses usually means harmonics, but i don't think Edge plays any. the 7/9 means you hold down the string and slide from the 7th fret to the 9th while keeping it ringing

Yeah, they didn't sound right. Anyone know of a good site with a lot of U2 tabs?

try www.u2station.com or www.ultimate-guitar.com

it looks good, yet it misses the last note, which is G7

Don't worry baby, it's gonna be all right. Uncertainty can be a guiding light...

I think in this case the parentheses mean optional note.

Oh and instead of sliding, you can also hammer to learn it.
