Mouths of Babes, By the Smashing Pumpkins.
Off the Areoplane flies high on the zero album
tabbed by Jon Ballard
Tune down 1/2 step(Eb,Ab,Db,Gb,Bb,Eb)

The song starts out with some feedback that I have been able to get with lots of distortion and
volume.

I think that this is right for the most part.  Whenever I play it with the recording it is
identical.

You'll probably have to get the rythms down yourself, but other than that i
think its pretty accurate.  It looks like alot but its not really that much.
Hope it helps.
