Vertigo Chords

Can somebody hear what chords are played in the chorus of "Vertigo"?

Yeah, that's all I can really make out. E - D - G - A

That progression kind of reminds me of the chords from The Smiths - Stop Me If You Think You've Heard This One Before.

E- x---x-----x----x--------------------------
B- 9---7---12---14-------------------------
G- 9---7---12---14-------------------------
D- 9---7---12---14-------------------------
A- 7---5---10---12-------------------------
E----------------------------------------------

Those are the chords I think I hear for the chorus... so pretty much along the lines of what has been said before.

I posted this a while ago:

Here are the main chords:

E D G A
----------------------------------------------------
--9--7--3--5--------------------------------------------
--9--7--4--6------------------------------------------
--9--7--5--7-------------------------------------------
--7--5--5--7------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------

Then Bono says "I can feel....". At this point, just alternate between barred E and Esus4...probably not the right thing, but works just as well. I suggest this because I can't make out what's on the recording.

Then there's a quick refrain which is basically G-D-A. I would play it like this:

G D A
E- x---x-----x---
B- 12---7---5--
G- 12---7---6--
D- 12---7---7-- x3
A- 10---5---7--
E----------------

Then the little solo is something like this: (each chord hit three times, but to save space and time, I just wrote each chord)

e-12---12---12--12-----
b-10----9----9----9------ x4
g--9----9----11---9------

I am almost 100% sure that this is the solo.

Then there's the Unforgettable Fire-inspired part which is something like this

Bm Am
e---------19----------17---
b-----19----------17-------
g--19---------17-----------

Then for the rest of the main clip you play the E-D-G-A progression.

Well, that's my interpretation.

-Cheers

I have a somewhat different tab:

Intro
e--------------------------------------------------
B--------------------------------------------------
G-----7/9--7/9--7/9-----------------------------
D-----7/9--7/9--7/9----7--7--7--7---6--5-----
A-----5/7--5/7--5/7----7--7--7--7---6--5-----
E--------------------------5--5--5--5---4--3-----

Verse - "Lights go down, it's dark..."
e---x----------------------------------------------
B---x---------------------------------------------
G---x----------------------------------------------
D---x----------------------------------------------
A---x-----------------------------------------------
E---x----------------------------------------------
Just palm mute, classic edge.

Chorus - "Hello, hello"
e---------------------------------------------------
B---------------------------------------------------
G---9-----7---------------------------------------
D---9-----7-----5-----7--------------------------
A---7-----5-----5-----7--------------------------
E----------------3-----5-------------------------- Listen for rythym.

Then repeat the intro.
e--------------------------------------------------
B--------------------------------------------------
G-----7/9--7/9--7/9-----------------------------
D-----7/9--7/9--7/9----7--7--7--7---6--5-----
A-----5/7--5/7--5/7----7--7--7--7---6--5-----
E--------------------------5--5--5--5---4--3-----

Second Verse
e---x----------------------------------------------
B---x---------------------------------------------
G---x----------------------------------------------
D---x----------------------------------------------
A---x-----------------------------------------------
E---x----------------------------------------------

Then, the part with classic edge delay, when bono sings
"They know that they can't dance, at least they know..."

e-----12----10----10--------12----10----10----------------
B--------10-----10-----10-------10-----10-----10---------
G---------------------------------------------------------------
D--------------------------------------------------------------
A--------------------------------------------------------------
E---------------------------------------------------------------

Then, repeat chorus and intro!
