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)

|---------------19-20------**-----| |-------11-12---------------------| |-4-------------------------------| |-4-------------------------------| |-2-------------------------------| |---------------------------------| *~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~* 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!!!
