LANDSLIDE - as performed by Smashing Pumpkins
=========   written by Stevie Nicks

Guitar 1, acoustic, capo 3rd fret

Chords: G#  |X6534X|
        Gm  |X5533X|
        Gm7 |X5536X|
        C5  |X355XX|

(I'm tabbaing this as if 3rd fret was open (0))

There are a few changes in the chord pattern but they're
all the same chords so you should be able to figure it out.

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.

CHORUS

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..)
+-0-----0----+-0----------+-0-----0----+-0----------+
+----0---0---+----0--7----+----0---0---+----0--7----+
+-----9------+-----8------+-----6------+-----8------+
+------------+------------+------------+------------+

+------------+------------+------------+------------+
+-7----7-----+-6----6-----+-4----4-----+-6----6-----+
+------------+------------+------------+------------+
       Took my love took it down....  (etc)

This section repeats throughout much of the verse...

Then the change to the chorus...

                                                Oh..

 I've been    afraid of    changing     cause I've...


 Then repeat the last two bars for

 "Built my life around you...
  Time makes you older even children get older...  and
  I'm getting older too...
  I'm getting older too..."

I KNOW there has been MANY MANY attempts at this song
and I haven't yet found one that was REALLY good, so
here is my version which comes out REALLY well when
playing along with the CD so I am pretty sure it is all
correct. This song MUST be played with the fingers.

Tuning is as follows:

e,a,D,G#,B#,e

This is just your 2nd and 3rd strings tuned up 1/2
a step.  This is not essential, but it makes it
MUCH easier to play, and it is tabbed in that way :)

Main Verse Finger Postions:

e a D G B e   I will call these:
-----------
x x 1 2 3 x   F.P. 1
-----------
x x x 2 2 1   F.P. 2
-----------
x 3 3 2 x x   F.P. 3

These are just the positions you keep ypur fingers,
but individual strings are played from each.

                                  ^^^
                       This is just an in between 
                           chord change thingy.

Every now and then there is a slighty variation to this
but no new notes are played.

CHORUS

The verse riff is played once after Billy stops singing
the verse where it is joined to the chorus like this:

|---------|-------1----|---------|---------|---------|
|-3---3-3-|-2---2----0-|-0-----0-|-------0-|-------0-|
|---2-----|---2--------|-----2---|-----2---|-----2---|
|-1-----1-|-0----------|---3-----|---3-----|---3-----|
|---------|------------|-3-------|-0-------|-1-------|
|---------|------------|---------|---------|---------|

|---------|------------------------|
|-------0-|------------------------| 
|-----2---|------2------2--------2-| 
|---3-----|----3----3-----3----3---|
|-0-------|------------------------|
|---------|--3-----3--3------3-----| 

 I will not TAB out the solo because the ones in the 
 other TABs were pretty decent.  Just do not forget
 to add 1 fret to any number on the 2nd and 3rd strings.
