Author/Artist: Smashing Pumpkins
Title: Bullet With Butterfly Wings
Album: Mellon Collie and the Infinte Sadness
Transcribed by: Justin
Email: JustMtnBk4@aol.com

All guitars tuned half step down:  Eb, Ab, Db, Gb, Bb, eb

I have yet to find a complete tab for this song, so here is my best shot.
The song is quite easy to follow along with.
Credit for the intro/verse and a few other parts goes to Brian McCall and Raman Bhatia,
as I put together a bunch of tabs I found and fixed some parts and added others.
Any questions, comments or corrections email me.

Chorus (distortion)
Both guitars
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
--4-4-2-4--4-4--7-7-7--2-2-2-2--4-2-4--4-4-4----------------------------------
--4-4-2-5--5-5--7-7-7--2-2-2-2--4-2-5--5-5-5------x4--------------------------

--------3--3-3----------------------3--3-3-3----------------------------------
        
                                                                      
End of first Chorus
---------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------
--5-4-5-7------------------------------------
--5-4-5-7------------------------------------
--3-2-3-5------------------------------------
     
  
Repeat verse
Guitar 1 same as before

Guitar 2 plays this:
-------------------------------------------
-------------------------------------------
--14~~--12--------------------------12-----
------------14--16~~~--16-16-16-16-----14--
-------------------------------------------
-------------------------------------------

Then it repeats this until the chorus.
-----
-----
-----
--9--
-----
-----


Repeat chorus
Both Guitars same as before
   
                                                                    
Bridge Part 1
------------7----------------5---------------7-----------------10------------
------------10b--------------8b--------------10b---------------13b-----------
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
--7-6-7-9-----------5-4-5-7---------7-6-7-9-----------5-4-5-7-------------x2-
--7-6-7-9-----------5-4-5-7---------7-6-7-9-----------5-4-5-7----------------
--5-4-5-7-----------3-2-3-5---------5-4-5-7-----------3-2-3-5----------------

These are octave bends; put your first finger on 7, second on 9 and third on 10,
then use both 2nd and 3rd fingers to bend the 10 until the pitch matches that 
of the 7 note and do the same for the other frets.  With some practice it gets easy.

I would say Guitar 1 plays the bar chords and Guitar 2 plays the bends.

Interlude (clean)
