Landslid Tab

   
Landslide by Smashing Pumpkins (yet another...)

Even though this song has been posted about 6 times already, I'm
posting my version because it's considerably different from those
which have appeared.  I'm pretty sure the notes are close
to accurate, but this version requires an odd tuning.

FIRST: Tune the high E string (i.e. thinnest string) down to a D.
I did this because I think I can hear the highest note of the first
chord played on two different strings (based on the tone quality).
You don't need to do this, as long as you don't try to play this string.

NEXT: Put a capo on the first fret.

Any feedback on how easy/hard you think this is to play, whether you
think this is a reasonable tuning, etc, is welcome.

My attempt at the solo:
p = pull-off
s = slide
(9)b8 = finger on eighth fret, but string is initially bent to produce
        ninth fret sound

Ok this is the best rendition of the Smashing Pumpkins version of
"Landslide" I have so far.  This was done at work from memory
without my guitar so I may have messed up the chorus some, but I
think it's correct.


(Intro played twice..)

 Then repeat the last two bars for

 "Built my life around you...

  I'm getting older too...
  I'm getting older too..."
