                             BELIEVE – The Smashing Pumpkins
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: squizz
Email: squizzle007@hotmail.com

Tuning:Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb
(the recording is flattened. god knows why? it sounds the same in 
standard tuning, apart from you can't play along with the track.)

that finger pattern is a stretch. well it is for me.

NB: spacing (-) does not indicate timing.

the previous tab is correct, i just finished it off. :D

v = downstroke
^ = upstroke

eb|------------------------------------------------------------|
Bb|---5------5-------5-------5-------5------5------5-----5-----|
Gb|----4------4-------4-------4-------4------4------4-----4----|
Db|-----2------2-------2-------2-------2------2------2-----2---|
Ab|-4------4-------2-------2-------0-------0-------------------|
Eb|-----------------------------------------------2-----2------|
(until "...your heart is still in mine.")

you can also play it like this, although it makes it harder to 
form the first chord of the chorus:

eb|---0-------0--------0--------0--------0-------0------0------0----|
Bb|----0-------0--------0--------0--------0-------0------0------0---|
Gb|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
Db|-----2-------2---------2--------2-------2-------2------2------2--|
Ab|--4------4--------2--------2--------0-------0--------------------|
Eb|---------------------------------------------------2------2------|

"I want to believe..."
    v ^ v   v v ...etc.  v v ..etc
eb|-----------------------------------------------------|
Bb|-5-5-5---5-5----------5-5----------------------------|
Gb|-4-4-4---4-4----------4-4----------------------------|
Db|-2-2-2---2-2----------2-2----------------------------|
Ab|-4-4-4---4-4----------4-4----------------------------|
Eb|----------------------0-0----------------------------| x2
   (quick)               "your song..."

(repeat downstroking until "...your song." then change.)
(its okay if you hit the top string here as well, cos the 5 on the 
Bb is the same note.)

"on sunday..."
      v   v   v   v  ...etc  
eb|-----------------------------------------------------|
Bb|---5---5---5---5---5---5---5---5---5-----------------|
Gb|---4---4---4---4---4---4---4---4---4-----------------|
Db|---2---2---2---2---2---2---2---2---2-----------------|
Ab|---4---4---2---2---0---0---2---2---2-----------------|
Eb|---------------------------2---2---2-----------------|
    
    1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 1 2 3and4

(hit chord on offbeat (beats 2 and 4))

this is played under verses 2 and 3 and the chorus in between.

"oooh..."
     v v v v
eb|-------------|
Bb|--5-5-5-5----|
Gb|--4-4-4-4----|
Db|--2-2-2-2----|
Ab|--4-4-4-4----|
Eb|-------------|
     1 2 3 4

(same chord just on every beat)

then go back into the picking for next chorus.
then strum. i'll let you mostly work out the strum pattern. 
the chords are there.

finish up with picking.

end on this chord:

eb|-----|
Bb|--5--|
Gb|--4--|
Db|--2--|
Ab|--2--|
Eb|--0--|
