/ Smashing Pumpkins / Siamese Dream (1993) / Luna guitar tab

"Luna" by Smashing Pumpkins

Transcribed by: Decko@u.washington.edu

This is my first attempt at transcribing, so there are probably a lot of out
of place stuff.  But the rhythm is easy so you should be able to figure it 
out on your own after you play it for a bit.  Any questions, comments, etc.
are more than welcome.

One of the easier songs off the Siamese Dreams album.  There is a sitar 
effect of some sort for Guitar 1.

- Standard Tuning

Play this rhythm part again until you get to "I'll sing along" again, where
the fill looks like this :
