SMASHING PUMPKINS – A Song For A Son
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by:Carrie Davies
Email:quietiamsleeping@yahoo.com

Tuning:Standard

Ok,I have not given all the technique on how to play the song but here is something you 
know…‘b’ obviously means bend,an ‘h’ above the ‘b’ means half bend and the ‘w’ above the 
means whole bend and so on.The tp in the solo means trem pick.Last of all the ‘ah’ 
means artificial harmonic,theyre almost semi-ah,by this I mean you can hear the note you pick 
the ah.Any questions etc feel free to email me.
