RHINOCEROS, from Gish, Smashing Pumpkins

- Aside from the solo, this is unquestionably the easiest song by the Pumpkins
  to play.  It sounds great with two guitars.

[Intro]
Guitar1, (clean)
=====   =======
          |----------------------------------------|
          |----------------------------------------|   repeat this for
          |----------9---------9/11--11--11-11-----|   several bars...
          |----------------------------------------|
          |----------7---------7/-9---9---9--9-----|
          |--0---0-------0-0---0-------------------|

        Guitar 2, (flanger and some delay), let top 2 strings ring
        ========
          |-------0-------------0-----------0-----0----0------0-------------|
          |-----0-------------0-----------0-----0----0------0---------------|
          |---2-----1-----1h2-----1h2---7-----6----4-----/11----9(ring)-----|
          |-----------------------------------------------------------------|
          |-----------------------------------------------------------------|
          |-----------------------------------------------------------------|

           ------------------0-----0-----0----0-------0-----0----0-----0----|
           ----------------0-----0-----0----0-------0-----0----0-----0------|
           -9h11-11/13--14----13----11----9-----/13----11----9-----7--------|
           -----------------------------------------------------------------|
           -----------------------------------------------------------------|
           -----------------------------------------------------------------|
                                           (ring, guitar 2 takes a breather)
           -------0-4-------------------0-----------------------------------|
           -----0-----0----------0------0-----------------------------------|
           -1h2---------2----1-2--------1-----------------------------------|
           -----------------------------2-----------------------------------|
           -----------------------------------------------------------------|
           -----------------------------------------------------------------|

[Verse]
Guitar 1, (clean)
======
                        pow-der show (?),     treasoned my  roots....
          |-------------------------------------------------0---------------|
          |-------------------------------------------------0---------------|
          |-------9------9/11--11-11-11-----9---13--11-9---11---------------|
          |-------------------------------------------------0---------------|
          |-------7------7/-9---9--9--9-----7---11--9--7----9---------------|
          |-0--0-----0-0----------------0-0---0------------10---------------|

    - This is the repeating riff in the song; at the D-chord, guitar 2
    arpeggiates the 6 strings.

    - after Billy says "...see you in June...", guitar 1 repeats the intro riff
     while guitar 2 lays this 'Gershwin' riff over it:

          |------------------------------------------------------------------|
          |------------------------------------------------------------------|
          |----14/16--16-16-16/19--19-19-19\16--16-16-16\14-14-14\13-13-13-13|
          |------------------------------------------------------------------|
          |----12/14--14-14-14/17--17-17-17\14--14-14-14\12-12-12\11-11-11-11|
          |------------------------------------------------------------------|

           --------------------------------|
           --------------------------------|  and so forth...
           --11/13-13-13-13/14--14-14-14---|
           --------------------------------|
           ---9/11-11-11-11/12--12-12-12---|
           --------------------------------|

[Chorus]
Guitars 1 + 2,(clean first time, distorted thereafter)
======
        The way......        she knows....
    |----0-----------3----------0-----------------------|  If you're playing a
    |----1-----------3----------3-----------------------|  strat, switch to the
    |----0-----------0----------2-----------------------|  bottom pick-up to
    |----2-----------0----------0-----------------------|  emphasize top string
    |----3-----------2----------------------------------|  on that D chord thing
    |----------------3----------------------------------|
      C mjr        G mjr      D whatever


[Bridge]
Guitar 1, guitar 2 solos overtop (bigtime distortion)
=======
        |----------------------------------------|
        |------------------------5---5-7--7--7---|   you get the picture
        |------------------------5---5-7--7--7---|
        |-7---7-5---7---5-7-5----5---5-7--7--7---|
        |-7---7-5---7---5-7-5----3---3-5--5--5---|
        |-5---5-3---5---3-5-3--------------------|


[2nd VERSE: ]  
join Gershwin riff to the previous repeating riff during
+========      "...open your eyes, to these must I lie?..." and add the bend:

          |---0-------------|
          |---0-------------|
     .... |--11b1211b12-----|    once
          |---0-------------|
          |---9-------------|
          |--10-------------|

[FINAL VERSE: ]   
James plays C G D progression while Billy lays these overtop:
===========

  |----------------------------   ---------------------------------------------|
  |---------------------------- a ---------------------------------------------|
  |---------------------------- n ----11-12--11h12p11p9------------------------|
  |---------------------------- d ----------------------12---10-9--------------|
  |-(10)b9--7--5--5--7--5--7--9   --------------------------------12-10-9------|
  |----------------------------   ----------------------------------------12-10|

  The last chord is that weird D.  Hold till fade, then take a step towards the
 amp and weave some magic.

"...open your eyes, to these must I lie?..." part:
e|-----------0~----------------|

D|-----------------------------|

and you seem to be missing a solo, but good other than that.
