#            "ZERO" by Billy Corgan (The Smashing Pumpkins)             #
#  As heard on the 1995 album "MELLON COLLIE AND THE INFINITE SADNESS"  #
#-----------------------------------------------------------------------#

This song is a little crazy, but you should try it out. Corrected the
main riffs to be octaves instead of chords but I'm still not sure
about that insane solo...

G1: Eb (EbAbDbGbBbEb) -Electric Full Distortion (Billy Corgan)
G2: Eb (EbAbDbGbBbEb) -Electric Full Distortion with phaser (James Iha)
G3: Eb (EbAbDbGbBbEb) -Pre-recorded G2 or G1 w/ 1 addtnl' semitone down effect

The solo is kinda hard to follow, but besides that pretty good. If this one and version 2 were to be combined and fiddled with it'd sound perfect.

According to the 3rd Guitar Pro version of this song, the solos consist of an additional harmonic tone of one third using a whammy... I don't know how that works but I checked it out and it sounded okay. (They are way different from mine... indicating that my post is incorrect.) Only problem is the solo makes no musical sense to me when I look at the numbers. AAAAAAAAAArrrrggggg!!!!!!!!
