Landslide by Smashing Pumpkins (yet another...)

Even though this song has been posted about 6 times already, I'm
posting my version because it's considerably different from those
which have appeared.  I'm pretty sure the notes are close
to accurate, but this version requires an odd tuning.

FIRST: Tune the high E string (i.e. thinnest string) down to a D.
I did this because I think I can hear the highest note of the first
chord played on two different strings (based on the tone quality).
You don't need to do this, as long as you don't try to play this string.

NEXT: Put a capo on the first fret.

Any feedback on how easy/hard you think this is to play, whether you
think this is a reasonable tuning, etc, is welcome.

My attempt at the solo:
p = pull-off
s = slide
(9)b8 = finger on eighth fret, but string is initially bent to produce
        ninth fret sound

CHORUS

More VERSES

From: drizzt@clark.net (Drizz't)

Ok this is the best rendition of the Smashing Pumpkins version of
"Landslide" I have so far.  This was done at work from memory
without my guitar so I may have messed up the chorus some, but I
think it's correct.


(Intro played twice..)
+-0-----0----+-0----------+-0-----0----+-0----------+
+----0---0---+----0--7----+----0---0---+----0--7----+
+-----9------+-----8------+-----6------+-----8------+

       Took my love took it down....  (etc)

This section repeats throughout much of the verse...

Then the change to the chorus...

 Then repeat the last two bars for

 "Built my life around you...
  Time makes you older even children get older...  and
  I'm getting older too...
  I'm getting older too..."

this song is infact normal tunning with the cappo on the third fret.
the cords are:

C 032010
G/B 020030
A7 002010
F#/D9 200230
G5 300030
Em 022000

intro: C 1 measure, G/B 1 measure
A7 1 measure, G/B 1 measure

Verse 1: C 1 measure, G/B 1 measure
A7 1 measure, G/B 1 measure
C 1 measure, G/B 1 measure
A7 1 1/2 measure, G/B 1/2

Verse 2: Same as above except last half measure which is replaced with
F#/D9

Chorus : G5 1 measure, F#/D9 1 measure, Em 2 measure.

These are correct and you will go a long way using this picking pattern.

B ------1---------
G --0-------0-----
D ----2-------2---
A 3-------3-------

This obviously is the introduction C repeat the picking pattern throughout.
HOPE THIS MAKES SENSE !!!
