cherub rock -- smashing pumpkins
----------transcribed by chris carman (cecarman@miavx1.acs.muohio.edu)
considering I learned this on a 30-year old acoustic guitar from
the Philipines, this isn't exactly right, so bear with me....
Intro -- sounds like 12-strings, probably overdubs...

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------14-14---14-14---14---14-14---14-14-14-------------------------------------------------0-12-12-0-12-12-0-12---12-12-0-12-12-12-0--

repeat 6x,
clean guitar,
straight eighths
except for tie
where the space
is

------------------------------------- 4x with heavy dist.,
------------------------------------- lots of guitar noise,
-----9-9---9-9---9---9-9---9-9-9----- then play:
-----------------------------------------7-7---7-7---7---7-7---7-7-7-------0-----0-----0---------0-------0---

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------13-13---13-13---13---13-13---13-13-13-------------------------------------------------------11-11---11-11---11---11-11---11-11-11-------0-------0-------0------------0----------0---

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------16-16---16-16---16---16-16---16\--------------------------------------------x\--------------14-14---14-14---14---14-14---14\------------0-------0-------0------------0--x\---------then play Riff 1 twice:
vib.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------9p7-----11h12-x-11---9p7----------7--------------------7-- and then two power chords:
-----------------------------------------7---7-x------------7---7-x--7---7-----5---5-x--7---7--------------5---5--then Riff 1 once along with Riff 1a variation, just don't pull
off of the 9 on the A string and slide back up to the 11th like
this:
Riff 1a:-------------------|V
--------------------------|-------------------------------------------------|------------------------

--------------------------|-------------------------------------------------|--------------------------9p7-----11h12-x-11---9-|--9/11--11h12-x-11---9-- ...etc
-------7------------------|-----------------------then alternate between Riff 1a twice and the power chords once a
total of three times in the first verse, then play:
----------------------------------- and
------------------ then
---9-10--10----5-- play
---9-10--10----5----7-8---8-----3--

---------------------------------------7-----------------7---7--9-10--5----5---7--9-10--5--------5--7-8---3--

three times,
holding on the
C power ----chord --10the
--103rd x --8--

Then repeat the verse and chorus sections, then play the part
under "let me out" 4x:
---0-0-0--------------------------0-0-0---7----------------------1-1-1---7---------5-5---/7-----2-2-2---7---7-7---5-5---/7-----2-2-2---5---7-7---3-3---/5-----0-0-0-------5-5-------------Then play this riff, similar to the opening one:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------9-9---9-9---9---9-9---9-9-9-----13-13---13-13---13---13---------------------------------------------------------------7-7---7-7---7---7-7---7-7-7-----11-11---11-11---11---11--0-----0-----0---------0-------0-0-------0-------0-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------13---13-13-13-----16-16---16-16---16---16-16---16-16-16---------------------------------------------------------------11---11-11-11-----14-14---14-14---14---14-14---14-14-14-------0----------0-0-------0-------0------------0----------0--------------------------------------------------------------------------------19-19---19-19---21---21-21-----------------------------------------x\-x\-- into the guitar solo...
---17-17---17-17---19---19-19---x\-x\--0-------0-------0------------0-x\-x\-Play these power chords under the solo:
D - A - E
D - A - E
D - A - E
D - A B - C - G
Then you're back into the chorus above.
The lead "weedle-a" guitar parts are as follows:

vib....
vib. sustain,vib.
sustain,vib.
---10(12)-b10-----------|---10b12--b10\--------------------------------------------|---------------------10--------------------------12-11----|-------------------------------------------------------12-|----------------------------------------------------------|----------------------------------------------------------|----------------------------------vib.
vib.
---10b12b10-----------------10b12b10-----10b12--b10--------------------10-----------10----------10------------------------------------12-11------------------------------------------------------------12---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------vib.
slow bend
feedback, vib.
---17b19--17--15p14------------------------------------------------------------15-10--\----10b12--------10(12)-----------------------------------\-----------------10(11)-----------------------------------------------------10----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------back into Riff 1 once, and Riff 1a seven times through the end.
play this through the end, after the riff has been played four
times... use 16th note strums, one measure on each chord except
for the end chord, which you can figure out by listening to the
song.
