             Bullet With Butterfly Wings Live - Smashing Pumpkins
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by:qzuiilw               
Email:qzuiilw@hotmail.com

Tuning: 1/2 Down

This is one strange song, it's all jungle like with bird noises and stuff.It's 
nothing like the recording, or other live
songs they've done in the past.Pretty much it's them jamming along to the basics 
of the song and singing the chorus every now and then.
 It's really messy and mostly improvisation so slide up and down the fret board 
alot and mute and harmonic pinch to add effect. If i tabbed out every slide and
every bit of feedback in here it would be a mile long haha. 
I've tabbed the main part of the song from James and Billy enough to be able to 
play along to 90% of the song.The intro is different too the B chord is played 
alittle differently.
This is recorded from the secret gig from the Sydney shipping terminal 98' this is 
similar to most recordings from the adore
tour in 98'

That's pretty much it... they go into a massive jam improvised solo thing then 
goes back to the Dispite All My Rage part.
This song is extremely improvised so go nuts, but the main part of the song is 
there enough to be able to play along
with it start to finish.


I noticed no one has put any tabs from the adore LIVE era up. So hopefully i'll 
get around to adding alot more.
