		* Tuned Down - Eb,Ab,Db,Gb,Bb,Eb *

    This is a pretty easy tune of the new album, throughout the whole 
    song there are only two riffs.  I will show the two, and you can
    figure out the rest for yourself.  I have seen other attempts at
    this song, but I think this is the most accurate.


Main Riff of the Whole Song
                                                                               
Eb-|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
Bb-|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
Gb-|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
Db-|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
Ab-|-3/5---------------3------------------------------------------------|
Eb-|------4--4--0-0-0----1--3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-----------------------------|
                                                                               

Second Riff, used in Chorus and at the end 
                                                                               
Eb-|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
Bb-|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
Gb-|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
Db-|-3-3-3-3---3-3-3--3-3-3-3-3-5-4-------------------------------------|
Ab-|-3-3-3-3---3-3-3--3-3-3-3-3-5-4-------------------------------------|
Eb-|-1-1-0-1---1-0-1--1-1-1-1-1-3-2-------------------------------------|
                                                                               
Thats pretty much it, near the end it does the previous part, but without
going up to the G5 and F#5 (I Think thats it).

This is my first transcription, so please write me with and comments and
suggestions at BUGG_SUPERSTAR@S-GRIFFIN.COM. Enjoy :)

  This song is really basic, and should take no one more than a few minutes
to learn.

 There's also a background solo-like thing that's pretty cool, so if
anyone's up to the challenge, please try to tab it out. Thanks.

SONG: Where Boys Fear to Tread
ARTIST: The Smashing Pumpkins
ALBUM: Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness
TUNING: Half step down
NOTES: This song revolves around to riffs. There is a second guitar 
playing some really high solo - type stuff.

I believe this is the first version with the lyrics included.

       then hit open strings for about 30 seconds

Tuning   : Eb (surprise!)

Here we go. This tab might not be 100% correct, but
it sounds very very close. I didn't tab the intro.
You'll have to find it out yourself. It's not too
hard.

Verse:

|---------------------------------|

|--7---------5--------------------|
|--7-6-------5-3-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5--|
|--5-6-------3-3-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5--|

|--3-3---3--3---3--3---3--3-5-4--|
|--1-1-0-1--1-0-1--1-0-1--1-3-2--|


That's it. Not so hard, is it?
Well, see ya.
