Resume Riff 4, but on D in place of A: D C G A C G I wish, I wish I could fly I wish, I wish I could lie(?) I will, I will try I will, I will, goodbye
Song continues on D, feedback solo. Yeah, good luck. End on D
This is how I play Drown, I tried to duplicate the guitar tones as close as possible by using alot of open strings, as the pumpkins do alot. Any comments would be appreciated. Other songs are coming!

Here are some licks from "Drown" which are closer to the CD than those in the original tab...
- for the "..Was it something someone said.." part, play this:
|------------------------------------------------------------------------ |--10---10---12-12-12--10------------------------------------------------ |--11---11---11-11-11--11-----11----11-11/14-14\11----------------------- |---9----9----9--9--9---9------------------------------------------------ |---0----0----0---------0------9-----9--9/12-12\-9----------------------- |---x----x----x---------x------0-----0--0--0--0--0-----------------------
- or something like that anyway. Also, for the end part of the 2nd solo, play this: |------------------------------------------------------------------------ |------------------------------------------------------------------------ |-------------------------17--17-17-17\16-16-16\14-14-14/16\12--12------- |------11-12--14-12-11--------------------------------------------------- |--12---------------------15--15-15-15\14-14-14\12-12-12/14\10--10------- |------------------------------------------------------------------------
- Billy has used these types of chords in other songs, so he's probably using them here too. Thanks to S.Lee for the original tabs.
