There are a few changes in the chord pattern but they're
all the same chords so you should be able to figure it out.

I know that's probably wrong, but it's what I came up with.

version 2
---------

I KNOW there has been MANY MANY attempts at this song
and I haven't yet found one that was REALLY good, so
here is my version which comes out REALLY well when
playing along with the CD so I am pretty sure it is all
correct. This song MUST be played with the fingers.

Tuning is as follows:

E,A,D,G#,B#,E

This is just your 2nd and 3rd strings tuned up 1/2
a step.  This is not essential, but it makes it
MUCH easier to play, and it is tabbed in that way :)

Main Verse Finger Postions:

E A D G B E   I will call these:
-----------
x x 1 2 3 x   F.P. 1
-----------
x x x 2 2 1   F.P. 2
-----------
x 3 3 2 x x   F.P. 3

These are just the positions you keep ypur fingers,
but individual strings are played from each.

                                  ^^^
                       This is just an in between 
                           chord change thingy.

Every now and then there is a slighty variation to this
but no new notes are played.

CHORUS

The verse riff is played once after Billy stops singing
the verse where it is joined to the chorus like this:

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

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

 I will not TAB out the solo because the ones in the 
 other TABs were pretty decent.  Just do not forget
 to add 1 fret to any number on the 2nd and 3rd strings.

 E-mail me with comments, improvements, and suggestions.

Landslide

(Fig1) - 2x

(Fig1)
        I took my love, I took it down.

(Fig1)
        I climbed a mountain and I turned around...

        (Fig1)
And I saw my reflection in the snow covered hills

        (Fig1) - slight variation at end
'Til the landslide brought it down.

        (Fig1)
Oh, mirror in the sky, what is love?

        (Fig1)
Can the child within my heart rise above?

        (Fig1)
Can I sail through the changing ocean tides?

        (Fig1)
Can I handle the seasons of my life? 

(Fig1)

(Fig2)

        (Fig3)
Well, I've been afraid of changing cause I've

        (Fig1)
Built my life around you,

        (Fig3)
But time makes you bolder.  Even children get older,

        (Fig1)
And I'm getting older, too.

(Fig1 - acou gtr solo) - 3x

(Fig2 - acou gtr solo)

        (Fig3)
Well, I've been afraid of changing cause I've

        (Fig1)
Built my life around you.

        (Fig3)
Time makes you bolder...even children get older,

        (Fig1)
And I'm getting older, too.

        (Fig1)
I get older, too.

        (Fig1)
I took my love and took it down.

        (Fig1)
I climbed a mountain...I turned around...

        (Fig1) - pause at end
And if you see my reflection in the snow covered hills,

        (Fig1)
The landslide brought it down...

        (Fig1)
The landslide brought it down.

(Fig1) - 2x
