              add rhythm there as appropriate...

I guess that since the song's not widely released I should have
been more thorough and specific, but y'all will hear it soon and
know how it goes.  And you know how I hate to tab out all those
rhythm strumms (ie. the end riff)...sorry.

Subject: BUllet with butterfly wings by Smashing Pumkins

okay this is how i figured out how to play what be the bst pumkins song out
there
so it goes like this

all guitaras tuned in Eflat

he says "THe world is a vampire"
g--------------------
d--------------------
a2-2-0-2----------
e----------3-0------

do that about 6 times then you go 

g------
d-------
a-------
e0-3-3


then the chorus ("dispite all my rage...)

g---------------------------
d----------------------------
a2-2-0-----5-55----------
e-------3-33-----555-0-3

repeat first part 
then second time on chorus

g----------------------------------------
d-----------------------------------------
a2-2-0------5-55----------------------
e-------3-33------555-000-3-333-5

and the bridge goes like so

g--------------
d---------------
a-----2-------5
e333---555--

and you end it on the chorus but on the last note it's a 2 on the e string
like so

g-----------------------------
d----------------------------
a2-20------5-55-
e------3-33------5-55--3-2

that's it
