Today Acoustic Tab

Song: Today (acoustic)
Album: MTV Unplugged
Band: Smashing Pumpkins

The tuning for this song is normal EADGBE tuning, it's slightly different than the album version so bear 
me. This is my first time. Here goes.
S= slide
H= hammer on
P= pick off
The song does not have a solo intro like the other one so both guitars play this.
