     Zero - Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness
            Transcribed by Adam Morris

I haven't seen this tabbed yet, so here it is.


1/2 step down

* above note means harmonics.  If 2.5 is written that means
that you place your finger RIGHT in the middle of the third
fret.

Practice may be needed to get the right sound out of these
harmonics, but I assure you..they are correct.

Main Riff

VERSE2 - Same as VERSE 1 but with the harmonics as well.

Then main riff for a while.

"Emptiness is loneliness..."

|--7-7-7-----7-7-7-----------------------------------|

 Weird solo thingy

 It stops..then this pick slide thingy from about the 14th
 fret.
|----------------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------------| 
|----------------------------------------------------| 
|--x-\-----------------------------------------------|
|--x-\-----------------------------------------------| 
|----------------------------------------------------| 

 Main riff simile all through this bit.
 2 and 3 on the low E string every now and then.

 Then it goes to this
|----------------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------------| 
|-----9-----9-----9-----9-----9/11--7--/-------------| 
|----------------------------------------------------|
|-----7-----7-----7-----7-----7/-9--5--/-------------| 
|-0-0---0-0---0-0---0-0----0-0-----------------------| 

  That is pretty much it.  Please send me comments and 
  corrections.  benmo@deakin.edu.au
