1979 - Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness
Transcribed by Adam Morris

1/2 step down.

INTRO/MAIN RIFF
|-------------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------| 
|-8--8-8-8-8-9--4-4-4-4-4-4-4---------------------------| 
|-------------------------------6b-7-4-2-2-2-4-6-9--9-9-| x4
|-6--6-6-6-6-7--2-2-2-2-2-2-2-0-0--0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0--0-0-| 
|----0---0---0--0-0-0-0-0-0-0---------------------------| 


Then this once.
|-------------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------| 
|11--11-11-11-11-11-4--4-4--4-4-4-----------------------| 
|-------------------------------------------------------|
|-9---9--9--9--9--9\2--2-2--2-2-2-----------------------| 
|-------------------------------------------------------| 

Then back to the main riff x 3 (I think it is 3)

Then play this.
|----------------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------------| 
|----------------------------------------------------| 
|-4--4-4-4-4--4-9--9-9--9-9-9------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------------| 
|-2--2-2-2-2--2/7--7-7--7-7-7------------------------| 


Then the part that I think would be called the CHORUS
|----------------------------------------------------|
|----5--------4--4-4-5--5-5--------------------------| 
|----4--4-4-4-4--4-4-4--4-4--------------------------| 
|-6--6--6-6-6-6--6-6-6--6-6---6b-7-4-2-2-2-4-6-9--9-9| x 4
|-7--7--7-7-7-7--7-7-7--7-7-0-0--0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0--0-0| 
|-0--0--0-0-0-0--0-0-0--0-0--------------------------| 
                            *________________________*
                 Through this bit a second guitar plays the
                 higher strings of the E chord just played.

Then play this.
|----------------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------------| 
|----------------------------------------------------| 
|-4--4-4-4-4--4-9--9-9--9-9-9------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------------| 
|-2--2-2-2-2--2/7--7-7--7-7-7------------------------| 

Then back to the VERSE/MAIN RIFF

Then to this.

Then play this.
|----------------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------------| 
|----------------------------------------------------| 
|-4--4-4-4-4--4-7--7-7--7-7-7------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------------| 
|-2--2-2-2-2--2/5--5-5--5-5-5------------------------| 

Then back to the CHORUS

Then it changes to what I will call the BRIDGE

|----------------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------------| 
|----------------------------------------------------| 
|-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-11-11-11-11-7-7-7-7-7-7-7|
|----------------------------------------------------| 
|-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7--9--9--9--9-5-5-5-5-5-5-5| 

From thereon in there is no new stuff..so that is it.

The song ends on the weird E from the CHORUS

I would like to hear some opinions about this please.
