Snail  The Smashing Pumpkins

SNAIL - Gish - Smashing Pumpkins
h = hammer on p = pull off > = vibrato
/,\ = slide up, down fb, hb = full bend, half bend
fr, hr = full release, half release * = artificial harmonics
INTRO:
Guitar1, (clean)
 
 |-A--Em--G-| The G is played like: |32003x| except 3rd time where 

its played like |320033|. The fills are below:
 
 |----------------2h3-3/5-5/7-5-|
 |-2h3/5/7hb\-------------------|
 |------------------------------|
 |------------------------------|
 |------------------------------|
 |------------------------------|

Then comes:
Guitar2, (distorted)
 
 |---------------------------------------------|
 |-2-2--2---2-0-2-2---2-2-2----2-2-2---2-2--2--|
 |-2-2--4p2-2-0-2-2---2-2-4p2--2-2-2---2-2--2--|
 |-2-2--2---2-0-2-2---2-2-2----2-2-2---2-2--2--|
 |-0-0--0---0-0-0-0---0-0-0-0--0-0-0---0-0--0--|
 |---------------------------------------------|

Then both guitars play G then D/F#, these can be played in two different
ways either as open chords: G |320033|, D/F# |200232| or as barre chords:
G |355233|, D/F# |254232|.
The majority of the song revolves around A, G, and D/F#.
Guitar2 continues playing this progression:
 
 |--A----G--D/F#--A----G--A----G--|

During the beginning of this, Guitar1 plays a little solo:
 
 |---------------------------------------------------|
 |---------------------------------------------------|
 |-6>---6-6hbhr6h7r6---------------------------------|
 |-----9------------7/(14)---------12-11-12-11-------|
 |-------------------------*12hbhr-------------*12>--|
 |---------------------------------------------------|

And where the progression above holds on the G chord twice there is
a G note played on the 5th fret of the D string in unison.
Guitar2 then repeatly plays Riff1 until the quiet part:
Riff1:
 
 |-A--G--D/F#-| 

Under the progression there is a little riff:
 
 |--------------------------------------------------------------|
 |--------------------------------------------------------------|
 |--------------------------------------------------------------|
 |---------------5-5-4>---------------5-5-4>--------------------|
 |---------4-5-7----------------4-5-7----------4-5-4-5-4h5p5----|
 |-5>--5-7--------------5>--5-7------------------------------5--|

Now when Riff1 stops on the D/F# chord, slide up the F# note
on the 2nd fret of the low-E string to a G note on the 3rd
fret of the same string while partially muting the other strings.
Riff1 continues and this solo is played over it:
 
 |---------------------------------------------------------------|
 |-----------------------------------------10>--8h10p8---8/14>---|
 |-10>------------------------------9-11>--------------11--------|
 |-----11h12-11-9-11-11h12p11p9----------------------------------|
 |------------------------------12-------------------------------|
 |---------------------------------------------------------------|
 |---------------------------------------------------------|
 |--16hbhr-14*14hb>>--17fbfr-(18)--------------------------|
 |----------------------------^-mute with another finger---|
 |---------------------------------------------------------|
 |---------------------------------------------------------|
 |---------------------------------------------------------|

Now the quiet part comes in. It's just the A, G, D/F# chords
played over, but arpeggiated with certain notes left out.
[A]_ [G]_ [A]_ [G]_ [A]_ [G]_ [D/F#] _ [G]^--distortion comes back
x x x x x 3 0
x 0 x 0 x 0 3
2 0 2 0 2 0 0
2 0 2 x 2 0 4
0 x 0 x 0 x x
x 3 x 3 x 3 2
 
 - - - - - - -

Now Guitar2 starts playing Riff1 again.
These fills are also played over it:
 
 |--------------------------------------------------------|
 |--------------------------------------------------------|
 |--------------------------------------------------------|
 |--12p11p9-11p9--------------------------/11--12--14>>---|
 |--------------10h12--10-9h10p9>-------------------------|
 |--------------------------------------------------------|
 |--------------------------------------------------------------|
 |--------------------------------------------------------------|
 |--------------------------------------------------------------|
 |---------------5-5-4>---------------5-5-4>--------------------|
 |---------4-5-7----------------4-5-7----------4-5-4-5-4h5p5----|
 |-5>--5-7--------------5>--5-7------------------------------5--|

Riff1 ends on A and the song slows down again playing
this Riff2:
 
 |--------------------------------------------------------|
 |--------------------------------------------------------|
 |-------0-----0----------------------------0-----0-------|
 |-----9-----0--------11-12-11-9-11-9-----9-----0---------|
 |--10-----9----------0--0--0--0-0--0--10-----9-----------|
 |--------------------------------------------------------|
 ^-------------------------------^-------Riff2 repeats.

And this solo comes during Riff2:
 
 |--------------------------------------------------------|
 |----------------------------------------------19fb------|
 |--------------------------------16fbfr-14>>--------X\---|
 |-5>>--7>>>----5-5-/9-/11-/14>----------------------X\---|
 |--------------------------------------------------------|
 |--------------------------------------------------------|
 |--------------------------------------------------------|
 |--------------------------------------------------------|
 |--18h19r18h19r18r16h18r16h18r16--X\---------------------|
 |---------------------------------X\---------------------|
 |--------------------------------------------------------|
 |--------------------------------------------------------|

The X\'s are pick slides. The first pick slide should be fast and
over the pickups on the indicated strings, this should give a
similiar sound. The second is a tad bit slower well in front of
the lead pickup.
Riff2 then continues with distortion, and the song ends on an A chord.
