Tristessa  The Smashing Pumpkins

I know that everyone expects all the new MCIS tabs. But I haven't really seen
a good Tristessa tab out there. It lacks solo but I don't have the patience.
Intro(and most of the song)

The stars mean bend a quarter step and return
Second part

Palm mute throughout.
Add some funky notes here and there and let off on the palm muting. Listen to
the recording for correct rhythyms.
Back to intro
back to second part
[E] [G] [A] [E] [D] [B]  

Play this once
then the second time just play E, G, A
thrid time repeat all of it
fourth time play the E, G, A then this
[E] [D] [B] [A] 

Solo using the intro voicing's underneath
Then the second part.
Then end with a quick repeat of the intro voicings.
This tab is quite weak but it's voicing should be very close to what Billy
might actually be playing. You really never know.
Someone might be kind enough to add the solo but there usually a waste of time.
Just find the right key, and make some sh*t up. If you have enough effects and
have decent speed you'll make it sound cool. Many people who arent guitarists
would not even know if it's not really technical.
