cherub rock -- smashing pumpkins (billy corgan)
-----------
thanks (in part) to Guitar World Magazine

I decided to re-tab my earlier cherub rock tab because, basically, it wasn't
very good.  Anyways, here it is:

----12-12---12-12---12---12-12---12-12-12------|  repeat 6x,
-----------------------------------------------|  clean guitar,
-----9--9----9--9----9----9--9----9--9--9------|  straight eighths
-----------------------------------------------|  except for tie
-----7--7----7--7----7----7--7----7--7--7------|  where the space
--0-------0-------0------------0----------0----|  is


-------------------------------------|  4x with heavy dist.,
-------------------------------------|  lots of guitar noise,
-----9-9---9-9---9---9-9---9-9-9-----|  then play:
-------------------------------------|
-----7-7---7-7---7---7-7---7-7-7-----|
---0-----0-----0---------0-------0---|

-----------------------------------------------|
-----------------------------------------------|
-----13-13---13-13---13---13-13---13-13-13-----|
-----------------------------------------------|

-----------------------------------x\----------|
-----14-14---14-14---14---14-14---14\----------|
---0-------0-------0------------0--x\----------|


then play Riff 1 twice:

                   vib.
------------------------------------|
------------------------------------|
--11\9-----13/14---13----11\9-------|
------------------------------------|
---9\7-----11/12---11-----9\7-------|
-------0-0-------0----0-0-----0-0---| and then these two triad chords:

--------------------|
--------------------|
---2---2-x----------|
---4---4-x--2---2---|
---5---5-x--4---4---|
------------5---5---|

then Riff 1 once along with Riff 1a variation, just don't pull
off of the 9 on the A string and slide back up to the 11th like
this:

Riff 1a:---------------------|V

----------------------------|-------------------------------|
----------------------------|-------------------------------|
--11\9-----13/14---13----11-|-11/13-----13/14---13----11----|

---9\7-----11/12---11-----9-|--9/11-----11/12---11-----9----|  ...etc
-------0-0-------0----0-0---|-------0-0-------0----0-0------|

(see chords formations at the end of the file:)

[verse]

                        D                     A(ii)

Then play this riff, similar to the opening one:
------------------------------------------------------------|

---19-19---19-19---21---21-21----------|
--------------------------------x\-x\--|  into the guitar solo...
---17-17---17-17---19---19-19---x\-x\--|
-0-------0-------0------------0-x\-x\--|

Play these chords under the solo:

D - A(ii) - E
D - A(ii) - E
D - A(ii) - E
D - A(ii) - C - G

D         A           C  G

I know I know I know, should have listened when I was told.

[chorus]

The lead "weedle-a" guitar parts for "Tell me all.." are as follows:

          vib....    vib.   sustain,vib.      sustain,vib.

---------------------------------------------10-------------|
------------------------------------------------------------|
------------------------------------------------------------|

back into Riff 1 once, and Riff 1a seven times through the end.
play this through the end, after the riff has been played four
times... use 16th note strums, one measure on each chord except
for the end chord, which you can figure out by listening to the
song.                      hold          guitar noise

quiet -- by smashing pumpkins (billy corgan)
-----

This song is one of the easier ones on the album.  Lots of heavy,
fat distortion, turn up the treble & bass and cut the mids.

Do several tremelo bends, down then up, 4x until the drum intro.

slide up
then down     Riff 1

---------     --0-2-2-2--2/3-3-3--3/5-5-5--5/7-7-7--|

Play Riff 1 4x as intro, 4x under verse
Play this chorus riff 3x then the held note ending:

--------------------------------------------------------------|
--------------------------------------------------------------|
--------------------------------------------------------------|
---11-11----------------------11\9--9-9-9--9-9--9-7--7--7--9--|

---9--9-0----0---0--0--0---x-x---9\7------(x)\(0)-----|


For the second verse, play the Riff 1 section 12x and then do the
chorus again, all the way through until the hold.

To get that harmonic sliding effect, place your finger above the
12th fret on the high E string and slide down slowly, plucking
straight 16th note harmonics until you end up above the 7th fret
at the beginning of the 4th beat.  Do this four times under "We
are the fossils, the relics of our time... etc".

At the hold, hold for 8 beats, then play this 32nd-note strumming
pattern, similar to the end of Cherub Rock:

  w h h q q q q  e  e  e  e  e  e  e  e
------------------------------------------|
------------------------------------------|
--4-5-6-7-8-9-10-11-12-13-14-15-16-17-x\--|
--4-5-6-7-8-9-10-11-12-13-14-15-16-17-x\--|
--2-3-4-5-6-7-8--9--10-11-12-13-14-15-x\--|
------------------------------------------|

Under the guitar solo, play the main chorus part 3x and this
pattern the fourth time:

-----------------------------------------------------------------|
-----------------------------------------------------------------|
-----------------------------------------------------------------|
--11-11-----------------------11\9--9-9-9--9-9--9/12-12-12-12\---|
--11-11--9h11-11--11-11--x-x--11\9--9-9-9--9-9--9/12-12-12-12\---|
---9--9--0-----0---0--0--x-x---9\7--7-7-7--7-7--7/10-10-10-10\---|

Now here's where it gets interesting... Riff 1 is altered into a
3/4 time signature, with three measures of 3/4 time connected to
a measure of 4/4 time.  Play this entire sequence 4x, 2x without
vocals, 2x under "quiet, i am sleeping...".  At the end of the
4th time through, slide up to an B(7th fret E string) power chord
instead of going back down to the E power chord.

 repeat this section 3 times
        ||-------------------------------||
        ||-------------------------------||
[3/4]   ||*-----------------------------*||
        ||*--2h4-4-4--4/5-5-5--5/7-7-7--*||
        ||---2h4-4-4--4/5-5-5--5/7-7-7---||
        ||---0-2-2-2--2/3-3-3--3/5-5-5---||

        |--0-2-2-2--2/3-3-3--3/5-5-5--0-0-0-0--|

The lead part out of the solo into the changing time signatures
is as follows (you need to either play it with a Boss Ocataver or
deal with it not sounding very full-.. play twice before the
vocals (play the notes in the [] to get the octave effect-:

          vib.            vib.
---12/14--12----12/14--12------|
--------------------------12---|
---[9/11]-[9]---[9/11]-[9]-----|
--------------------------[9]--|
-------------------------------|
-------------------------------|

Then the outro is back into 4/4 time, the normal chorus pattern
8x all the way through to the end, where it stops on the E chord
the eighth time through.  Here's the lead part for the outro,
starting halfway through the 4th repeat:
                    vib                 vib      vib

Lyrics to Quiet:

Quiet, I am sleeping,
In here, we need a little hope
For years, I've been sleeping
Helpless, couldn't tell a soul

Be ashamed
Mess you've made
My eyes never forget, you see
Behind me

Silent metal mercies
Castrate boys to the bone
Jesus, are you listening
Up there, to anyone at all

We are the fossils, the relics of our time
Mutilate the meanings so they're easy to deny

Be ashamed
Of the mess you've made
My eyes never forget, you see
Behind me

Quiet, quiet
I am sleeping
Quiet, quiet
I am sleeping
Quiet, shut up
I don't trust you
Shut up, shut up
I can't hear you

Be ashamed
Of the mess you've made
My eyes never forget, you see
Behind me

Behind me, the grace of falling snow
Cover up everything you know
Come save me from the awful sound
Of nothing

Thanks (in part) to Guitar World magazine
(refer to the chord formations at the end of the file)

Okay, everyone, we've been duped by Billy Corgan.  You don't need to capo the
first fret or tune down a 1/2 step or anything.  Normal tuning, I swear.

hummer -- by smashing pumpkins (billy corgan)
------

This song is a little tougher than the earlier three because it's a lot longer
and a bit more complicated.  First, tune your low E string (6th string) down a
whole step to a D.  The intro is a sitar-like line with some weird noise
gate/static effect:

Repeat 10x

--2h3p2-------------2h3p2-----2-3--|

-----------------------------------|

Then play this fuzzed main riff:

Now play this distorted line:

guitar solo, very fuzzed out
to play this solo completely correct, you're going to have to tranpose up
an octave, and then slap some of that Octaver on there, but I thought it
would just be easier if I transcribed it in the lower octave... go buy that
effect, or an Octave Fuzz....

then play this progression back into the main fuzzed riff from before:

now this part is a clean guitar, with a bass doubling riff:
play this 5x:

then play this twice into the outro:

Lyrics to Hummer:

Faith lies in the ways of sin
Chased the charmed but I don't want them anymore
And in their eyes I was alive -- a fool's disguise
Take me away from here

Shame my tongue fat with promise all along
When I woke up from that sleep
I was happier than I'd ever been

When you decide that your life is a prize
Renew, revive, it's all right honey, it's all right, yeah

Happines will make you wonder
Will I feel ok
It scared the disenchanted
Far away

Yeah, I want something new
But what am I supposed to do
I-I, I love you
Yeah, I-I love you
It's true

Life's a bummer, when you're a hummer
Life's a drag

Ask yourself a question, anyone but me, I ain't free
Ask yourself a question, anyone but me, I ain't free
Do you feel
Love is real?

rocket -- by smashing pumpkins (billy corgan)

Okay, after the nearly-seven-minute-long Hummer, the chops deserve a
little break, and that's what this tune, Rocket, provides us with.  The
most interesting and exciting thing about this song is the prominent the
of the Boss Octave pedal in combination with the slide/bend guitar.  To
acheive this effect, you need to turn down the direct level on the Octave
pedal, and turn up both the 1 Octave Down and 2 Octave Down knobs.  This
creates a very thick pseudo-synth guitar sound that make this song what it
is.  Anyways, here we go:

intro (from Guitar World March 94, the rest is mine)
repeat 3x------------------|then play this 1x            keep repeating this
                           |                             main riff through
--------------------5---------------------------5-------| the first verse up
------3----5p3---3----------------3----------3----------| until the chorus
----0---0------0------0-3-------0---0--5p0-0------0-3---|
--5---------------------------5-------------------------|
--------------------------------------------------------|
--------------------------------------------------------|

Some little tremolo guitar floats through in the second bar after the intro:

-----
--7--
--7--  or something like that, just turn up the tremolo knob on your amp ;)
-----
--5--
-----

Bleed in your own light dream of your own life
I miss me I miss everything

right before the chorus play these two chords (or something similar):

----------------------------------|
----------------------------------|
--5-5--5-5-5----------------------|
--2-2--5-5-5--etc-----------------|
--0-0--3-3-3----------------------|
----------------------------------|
  everything...   I'll never be
G  D  F  C           G   D   F   C
          and on and on...
           G       D                   F         C
I torch my soul to show the world that I am pure deep inside my
G    D      F    C
heart....heart      no lie...(??)

the lead line over the chorus is as follows:
------------------------------------------|
-----------------10--------13------10p8---|  repeat this
---0--0--0-----11--11----14--14---9----9--|  4x
------------/12-------/15-------10--------|
------------------------------------------|
------------------------------------------|

now here's the beginning of that interesting octave pedal work.  This
part does not use a slide, but make the B string bends very fast.
Repeat this entire line 2x with the main riff underneath.

with octave pedal
------------------------------------------------------------------5h7-7b8b7--|
-6-8-8b10b8--6-8-8b10b8--6-8-8b10b8---6-8-8b10b8--6-8-8b10b8--6h8------------|
------------------------------------4----------------------------------------|
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Now under the 2nd verse, along with the main riff, play this part.  Turn the
direct volume all the way down and turn Octave  & Octave 2 all the way up,
and break out the slide.  If you don't have an octave pedal or a slide, play
the bottom notes in the brackets -- that's the equivalent, only not synth.
Another way to play it is to do bends, which is tough, but effective.

A crown of thorns, an image formed, deformed
The mark I've borne, a mark of scorn.. to you

Consume my love devour my hate only powers my escape

The moon is out the stars invite I think I'll leave tonite

use slow bends:          fast bends:

Co-transcribed by Chris Carman (cecarman@miavx1.acs.muohio.edu -- tab) and
Patrick A. Nast (Patrick.Nast@informatik.tu-chemnitz.de -- chords & lyrics)

This is my way to play the chords:

       B     E     G    F#     A     C     F     D
E------0-----0-----3-----9-----5-----8-----1----10--|

A------9-----7-----2-----9-----7----10-----3----12--|
E-----(7)---(7)----3-----9-----5-----8-----1----19--|

Hints: use chorus, reverb, echo, and Ebows to get it to sound like the record.
 Or just have fun with it.

just repeat something similar to the above intro stuff with the rest of the
band until the vocals come in, then play the chords written above the lyrics.
with over 40 guitar tracks on this song alone, the best thing we can hope to do
is approximate it -- hell, on stage, the Pumpkins only have two guitarists.

B        E       G
nothing left to say
B            E       G
and all i've left to do

               B  E
and she let me on down
     G               B   E

B          E       G

B      E      G
the opiate of blame

one last kiss for me yeah
B
one last kiss
     G
good night


[solo1] play E G A F# under solo1

Okay, the amazing thing about this solo -- and I shit you not -- is that not
only is it on an acoustic guitar (!) driven by an Ebow (!!), but there are
FOURTEEN studio tracks of it! (!!!)  So don't worry if this isn't exact. :)

a capo on the first fret like I do.

Lyrics:

Fool enough to almost be it
Cool enough to not quite see it
Doomed
Pick your pockets full of sorrow
And run away with me tomorrow
June

     Bm      G        D
Well try and ease the pain
     Bm      G        D
somehow we'll feel the same
E    F#m D      E            F#m  G
no   one knows  where our secrets go

I sing a heart to all my dearie
When your life is so so dreary
Dream
I'm rumored to the straight and narrow
While the harlots of my perils
Scream
And I fail but when I can I will
Try to understand that when I can I will

Guitar#1 now plays these chords through solo:

Main Riff again:
So Bad
When I can I will
Words defy the plans
When I can I will

Fool enough to almost be it
Cool enough to not quite see it
And dull enough to always feel it
Always old I always feel this

No more promise no more sorrow
No longer will I follow
Can anybody hear me
I just want to be me
And when I can I will
Try to understand
That when I can I will

Finally, an acoustic song!  of course, that's excluding Disarm...

This song is actually pretty easy, if you disregard the violin & cello..

Main riff:

--1/3--3-3/7-7--|--5--8--8---8--8--8---8--8----|

play this main acoustic riff throughout most of the song, or play the chords
marked in the lyrics....

[riff]
Feel it break your bones mr. jones
Taste me as I bleed, taste my need

               G           Am(i)             Em(i)
Spaceboy, I've missed you, spinning round my head
C(i)       G            D        Em

I want to go home, I want to go home...

[Tab courtesy of Jesse Scott, contact him for comments.]

Here's my TAB for Sweet Sweet - It's the simplest song on SD.. If anyone
thinks it's wrong tell me where I screwed up.

TAB by jesse.scott@baroque.tvk.tsoft.net

TUNING: "Dropped-G" (Low/High E G D G B E) Tune your A string down a
full-step to G

Notes: This is probably the simplest Pumpkins song,
       just two chord, the only wierd things are the
       alternate tuning and the wierd voicings.
       Also, the strumming pattern may not be exact
       but it's as close as I could tab it.


Voicings:
G - x00007
C - x55050

Main Riff:
Just repeat this through the entire song

Most of that is pretty good, but where the HELL are Geek U.S.A. and Silver***? Two of the best songs on the album man. I wanted to see if my tab of Geek U.S.A corresponded with anyone else's but oh well.
