 U2 "New Year's day" - bass tab *correction*
 -------------------------------------------

 Here's the correct way Adam Clayton plays the song.
 Tune down 1/2 step

 Main riff:

 G-----------------------------------------------------
 D--------10-------------2-----------5-------------5---
 A--12-12----12---12/3-3---3---3/7-7---7---7---7-7---7/
 E-----------------------------------------------------
 
 You can choose to play it with or without the slides, personnaly I prefer 
 to play it with the slides. It sounds very cool. In live performances Adam
 plays it with slides.

 Chorus:

 G-----------------
 D-----------------  * means repeat note
 A--10*-12*-10*-8*-
 E-----------------

 There are slight variations to the chorus during the beginning of the song
 and before The Edge's guitar solo. These variations are

 G--------------------
 D--------------------
 A--10*-8*-12*-10*-8*-
 E-------------------- 

 These are the parts that make the song. Just listen to it to know where to
 play the parts correctly.

I had a look at the version of new year's day that you have posted.  I 
tried playing while the song was playing, and it doesn't seem right.  
I'll post some corrections to you with this message.  Tell me what you 
think.
