                                           TRANSFORMER  

  Writen by Billy Corgan, performed by 
  Smashing Pumpkins on the 33 single.

                                Tune down 1/2 step

                                        main riff

     A/---------------------------------------------------------------------
----     
     E/--2--2--2--1--0----0--2--2--2--1--0----0--2--2--2--1--0----2    


                       chorus

           A5       B5        F#5
     D/--7---7--7---9----4--4--4--4--4--4--4      (also, at the end of this
they do
     A/--7---7--7---9----4--4--4--4--4--4--4       the little 2--1--0 from
the main
     E/--5---5--5---7----2--2--2--2--2--2--2       riff, but I like playing
it like this)

    

    At the end of the first chorus hit the A5 as he says "to witness......"

    Right before the second verse you do
         
             F#5        A5             F#5
    D/--4--4--4--4--7--7--7--7--4--4--4--4--4--4--4--4
    A/--4--4--4--4--7--7--7--7--4--4--4--4--4--4--4--4
    E/--2--2--2--2--5--5--5--5--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2

    At the end of the second chorus you do the A5 and then a B5 as he 
    says "to stomach....."

                                         Tabbed by,
                                                Benson Morrill
