Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness   Smashing Pumpkins



MELLON COLLIE and the INFINITE SADNESS - the song :)

TRANSCRIBED BY ADAM MORRIS

DO NOT overlook this TAB just because it a piano song, 
it is GREAT fun to play!!

THIS IS THE COMPLETE TAB!!

I have completed the TAB after MANY requests to do so,
so...enjoy!

This was NOT an easy task, I can assure you of that!!
Some piano chords do not convert well to guitar!

TUNING: 1/2 step down, dropped D (actually Db), with 
        capo on 2nd fret.  The 3rd fret now becomes 
        the 1st fret etc. (this is just to be consistent
        with the half step down thing)

  *~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
   This whole measure is IMPOSSIBLE
   to be arranged for guitar because
   of the difference in number of
   octaves to a piano.  The C is meant
   to be a low C, but I HAD to arrange
   it as a high, I am very sorry! 
** Impossible note on a guitar.

**** Remember that the numbers shown
     are fret numbers IN RELATION TO 
     THE CAPO!
     The dot on the 3rd fret becomes the
     1st fret in the tab fret.

As you can probably tell, this TAB was not
an easy task for me to work out and transcribe,
so.....

PLEASE tell me what you think!!!
