/ Smashing Pumpkins / Aeroplane Flies High (1996) / Said Sadly guitar tab

#
 ...said sadly  From The Bullet With Butterfly Wings single. Great song!
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=   If you haven't heard this one, GET IT! James sings and 
written by:       plays acoustic and slide, D'arcy on Bass, Kerry on Drums, 
 James Iha        and Nina Gordon steps in from fellow Chicago band, Veruca 
tabbed by:        Salt... Good Song.
 Davey B./Toast

Soo.. Git your acoustic out, and git yer friend a slide and go to it!

Tuning: 1/2 step down
(tab is represented as normal tuning...)

-- v's and ^'s are picking direction (v's=down towards ground)

-- If there big gaps in the tab where you know he's strumming, yes I know 
   he's strumming. I just thought it would look bad and consume time.

Intro: (let ring)

    Lover, can't find you, and noone knows what brings us here.

A few measures of G chords end the song...

And, yes, improvise for what I purposely left out, like go crazy with a 
solo with the slide during the song. It's easy to find a solo in this happy
little melody...

Thanks go out to Brian McCall for setting me straight on Obscured. Somehow,
I do think that Billy managed to keep normal tuning...

Guitar 2
|-------------------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------------| 
|--2/11~~~~---------------------------------------------------| 
|-------------------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------------| 
|-------------------------------------------------------------| 

Through the verse there is more lead stuff...really easy.

Guitar 1 plays the above main section twice and then it goes to this:

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

|-0-0--0-0-0--------------------------------------------------| 

 Guitar 1 does all the above through the verses behind James'
 and Nina's parts.

 When it gets to the "Lover..when.." it does this twice.

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

 Then to this.
|-------------------0--------0------3-------------------------|
|-1--1-1--3-3-------0--------3------0-------------0-----------| 
|-0--0-0--0-0---0-2-2--2-2---2------0--0-0-0-0--0-0-----------|

|--------------------------2------3-3--3-3-3-3--3-3-----------| 
                                *******************
 **** At this point the following is layed over the top.
|------------------------------------------------------------|
|-12------15-13p12-13-(12)-----------------------------------| 
|----12-------------------(12)-------------------------------| 
|------------------------------------------------------------|
|------------------------------------------------------------| 
|------------------------------------------------------------| 
  
Then it goes back to the verse riff simile, but changes on
the last bar before it changes to this

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

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

Then to this "Now you know.." bit.
|------------------3-------------3----------------------------|
|------------------1--1-1--1-1-1-1--1-1--1-1-1----------------| 
|----0----------0--0--0-0--0-0-0-0--0-0--0-0-0----------------|

|----x--x--2--2-2--3--3-3--3-3-3-3--3-3--3-3-3----------------| 
|-3--3--3--3--3-3---------------------------------------------| 
                 *\Repeat this section a few times/*

 Then just play an A for two bars with this lead over the top
               _     _
|---17b-15b-14b-r-14b-r---------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------------| 
|-------------------------------------------------------------| 
|-------------------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------------| 
|-------------------------------------------------------------| 

 Back into the "lover.." bit.

 In the middle there somewhere it drops down to that B type chord,
 (x2003x) but then drops straight back to the G

 Then the "Now you know.." bit as above.

 Then until the end it alternates netween those two G's.
 (3x0003) amd (320003)
 
 The little run thing is something like this.
|------------------------------------------------------------|
|------------------------------------------------------------| 
|------------------------------------------------------------| 
|------------------------------------------------------------|
|------2/5---------------------------------------------------| 
|--3h5-------------------------------------------------------| 


That is pretty much it...now, I see this as a fairly complete 
tab except for those lead bits...but most of it is here!!
Please send me comments. This wasn't a simple tab because of
all the slight variations that I had to tab, so it took me awhile.
I hope you appreciate it :)
