There are a few changes in the chord pattern but they're all the same chords so you should be able to figure it out.

I know that's probably wrong, but it's what I came up with.

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.

CHORUS
More VERSES
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.

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..."

I KNOW there has been MANY MANY attempts at this song and I haven't yet found one that was REALLY good, so here is my version which comes out REALLY well when playing along with the CD so I am pretty sure it is all correct. This song MUST be played with the fingers.
Tuning is as follows:
E,A,D,G#,B#,E
This is just your 2nd and 3rd strings tuned up 1/2 a step. This is not essential, but it makes it MUCH easier to play, and it is tabbed in that way :)
Main Verse Finger Postions:
E A D G B E I will call these: ----------- x x 1 2 3 x F.P. 1 ----------- x x x 2 2 1 F.P. 2 ----------- x 3 3 2 x x F.P. 3
These are just the positions you keep ypur fingers, but individual strings are played from each.
VERSES F.P.1 F.P. 2 F.P. 3 F.P. 2 |---------|-------1----|---------|---|-------1-----| |-3---3-3-|-2---2----0-|-0-----0-|-0-|-2---2----0--| |---2-----|---2--------|-----2---|---|---2---------| |-1-----1-|-0----------|---3-----|-0-|-0-----------| |---------|------------|-3-------|---|-------------| |---------|------------|---------|---|-------------| ^^^ This is just an in between chord change thingy.
Every now and then there is a slighty variation to this but no new notes are played.
CHORUS
The verse riff is played once after Billy stops singing the verse where it is joined to the chorus like this:
|---------|-------1----|---------|---------|---------| |-3---3-3-|-2---2----0-|-0-----0-|-------0-|-------0-| |---2-----|---2--------|-----2---|-----2---|-----2---| |-1-----1-|-0----------|---3-----|---3-----|---3-----| |---------|------------|-3-------|-0-------|-1-------| |---------|------------|---------|---------|---------|
|---------|------------------------| |-------0-|------------------------| |-----2---|------2------2--------2-| |---3-----|----3----3-----3----3---| |-0-------|------------------------| |---------|--3-----3--3------3-----|
I will not TAB out the solo because the ones in the other TABs were pretty decent. Just do not forget to add 1 fret to any number on the 2nd and 3rd strings.
