SYCMIOYO Live Version!

I'm having problems with the Live version of this song, any help is appreciated. Specifically, I'm looking for the chorus:

"Listen to me know..."

I believe, Edge plays something similar:

e|-12--12--12--12-12-12-12-12-12-|
b|-10--10--10--10---9--9---9---9--9-|
g|--9---9----9----9---9--9---9---9--9-|
d|------------------------------------------|
a|------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------|

But I'm not sure what follows up on it and how he plays the rest. Hope someone can help me out here

PS: Don't have a guitar with me right now, and I'm having 2nd thoughts about the b-string, maybe its "11-11-11-11--9-9-9-9", just play around with it a bit...

yeah he really did, actually read an article about it last month in "bass player". in case you're interested (or don't know the interview):

Quote:
Q: On slower songs like "Sometimes you can't make it on your own" you're holding long notes. When you don't have the driving rhythm, how do you feel the groove?

That song was very problematic, because it was a midtempo tune with a descending chord sequence. I find those to be like black holes; you have to go with them! When we were working on that in the studio, Edge was changing some of the root chords to try to break it up, but it was still a descending sequence. It was frustrating, because I couldn't get a bass part to work over it. We wanted to give it a twist, to go against the predictability and inevitability of ending up down on that F#. The end result is a hybrid. I followed the roots, and then during the playback, I noodled with a figure up around the 12th fret that could run through the whole tune. We tried using just that figure, but then we were missing the chord changes. In the end we put the two parts together. There's no real way of playing that live, so we've got a sequencer that covers the roots while I play the higher melodic part. It's a beautiful little countermelody. In many ways, that's as much a part of what I do as the eighth-notes--I've always had a desire to pull some melody out, to give a little counterpoint to what's going on.

g|--9---9----9----9---9--9---9---9--9--|

e|-12--12--12--12--12-12-12-12-12--|
b|--9----9---9----9---9---9---9---9--9--|
g|-11--11--11--11---9---9---9---9--9--|

e|-12--12--12--12--12-12-12-12-12-|
b|-10--10--10--10---0---0-- 0---0--0-|
g|--9---9----9----9---9---9---9---9--9-|

e|-12--12--12--12--12-|
b|-10--10--10--10---9--|
