Track: the everlasting gaze

Artist: the smashing pumpkins

Album: machina

Firstly I?d just like to say that everybody else who tried to tab this song must be tone deaf because 
all bollocks.

First of all the tuning is drop-d one tone down, so tune to (low to high) C-G-C-F-A-D this is much quicker 
tune to and is a lot kinder to your guitar and allows the chord voicings on the chorus.

As for effects use a thick fuzz on the intro and main riff, for the chorus, if you have a decent 
you?ll need it now, for those of you who own a boss GT3 use the ?fantasy? setting on bank 71, for the rest of you 
a mild overdrive and a wah pedal with the polarity down and some chorus (unless of course you have a keyboard player you can play with, in which case don?t bother.

INTRO:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
--------0^1------------------------------------------------0^1-------------------------|
--0^1-------1-1--0---------------------------------0^1-------1-1--0--------------------|
                           One bar hi-hat only                                 and again

MAIN RIFF:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
----------------------------------3----3--------------------------3----3----------------------|
----------------------------------5/7--5/7-----------------------5/7--5/7---------------------|
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
----------0^1------------------------------------0^1------------------------------------------|
--0^1------------1-1--0-------------------0^1------1-1--0-------------------------------------|

VERSE: guitar drops out, bass plays the same riff

BRIDGE: guitar comes back and plays this

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
----------------5--5---3-------0^1--1--1--------------------------------------------------------|
-------0^1----5--5---3-------0^1--1--1----------------------------------------------------------|
-0^1----------5--5---3-------0^1--1--1----------------------------------------------------------|

Then

------------------------------------------------|
------------------------------------------------|
------------------------------------------------|
------------------5--5--------------------------|
-------0^1------5--5----------------------------|
-0^1------------5--5----------------------------|

Instead of the next chord in the riff the chorus begins, this is when you?ll need those effects.


CHORUS: (the rhythm here isn?t accurate, this is an attempt to illustrate how many bars the chords are 
because barlines and rhythm notation are impossible to type)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
-6---6---6---6---3---3---3---3---3---3---3---3---3---3---3---3-------------------------------------------|

                                                                                        Go back to fuzz here
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
-1---1---1---1--6---6---6---6---3---3---3---3---3---3---3---3--------3-----3----|
-3---3---3---3--5---5---5---6---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0--------5/7---5/7--|

Play the main riff again
Next is verse 2
Then another bridge
And another chorus
Then there?s the a cappella part
Then the band comes back and plays the bridge
On the last time through the riff it goes,

------------------------------------------------------------------|
------------------------------------------------------------------|
------------------------------------------------------------------|
----------------5---5---3-----------------------------------------|
-------0^1----5---5---3-------------------------------------------|
-0^1----------5---5---3---hold------------------------------------|

And then,

OUTRO:

------------------------------------------------------|
------------------------------------------------------|
------------------------------------------------------|
--0--0------0--0------0--0------0--0------0--0--0--0--|
--0--0------0--0------0--0------0--0------0--0--0--0--|
--0--0------0--0------0--0------0--0------0--0--0--0--|play this a few times

And then
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
--------------5-------------------------------------------5----------------------------------|
-------------------3^5---3^5^3---1^0---------------------3^5?3^5^3----6^5--------------------|
