Need help with AIWIY

Hi, i am relatively new to guitar playing (bought my 1st guitar about a year ago) but thanks to a lot of people sharing their knowledge here and at U2 Recording Group , im improving every week.

I need a little help with AIWIY for a particular part. Here's what ive found in like 90% of tabs for that part:

Code:
 
eb|-0-0-0-0--0-0-0--2-2-0-0-2--|
Bb|-2-2-0-2--0-2-0--3-3-3-3-3--|
Gb|-2-2-2-2--2-2-2--2-2-2-2-2--|
Db|-2-2-2-2--2-2-2--0-0-0-0-0--|
Ab|-0-0-0-0--0-0-0-------------|
Eb|----------------------------|
But that didnt felt right for me, at least for the beginning of the song on live versions. This is like 'chords strumming' and what im hearing live is more like a picking pattern. I hope you can all understand what im saying, my 1st lang is french... Anyway i finally found what ive been looking for, THATS IT!! : (watch from 30 sec to 35 sec)

But when i try to play this, it just doesnt sound quite right from the notes to the tone... Is this what he plays ?? :

(please correct me and fill the ?'s)

Code:
 
----U U U U D U U D D U U D U D
eb|-0---------------2-0-2---?----|
Bb|-2-2-0-2---0-2---3-3-3--------|
Gb|-----------------------?---?--|
Db|---------?-----?--------------|
Ab|------------------------------|
Eb|------------------------------|
Also, is the delay a dotted 8th ? ... around 460-470ms ? And which effects or delay tweakings i should add to get closer to that tone (i have a korg A3 and a strato set on bridge/mid pickup)

I would really really like to get that part/song down, thanks for your help!

I havent been playing long either but it looks to me as though hes picking A and D chords. Your ?'s on the tab are just open A and D strings

Yes, they're just "0" on the tab, open strings.

I think it's actually something like this (for the live version):

|----------------------------------------
|------2------2----------3------3---------
|----2------2---2------2------2---2-------
|--------------------0------0-------------
|--0------0------------------------------
|----------------------------------------

Sorry for the rough draft, but I don't actually have my guitar with me right now.

Yes this is the part after. Starting at 35 sec in the video.

My problem is with the previous part, i cant get it to sound right, i mean perfectly right
