		* Tuning - Eb,Ab,Db,Gb,Bb,Eb *

	This is a Beautiful Song of off Mellon Collie, it took me
	an extremely long time to transcribe, and I think its 
	pretty accurate through most of the song.  This is the most
	organized way I could come up with to show each part.  The
	song is generally easy, and will come along with practice :)

Tabbed by Brian (Ansigod) McCall 

STUMBELEINE - by The Smashing Pumpkins from Mellon Collie and
===========   the Infinite Sadness

Note: This is about as close as I can get.  If you see any obvious
      mistakes or alternate (easier and more correct) chords please
      mail me.  I'll check it out and if it's right I'll correct
      the tab and credit you.

* Sometimes this is a five, when applicable in the song.
  When it is a five, the correct notes can be found by moving =

  the fingers on the E and A strings along the fretboard while still
  playing the same pattern...just listen to the song to find the right
  notes. There are other little variations but you should be able to =

  figure them out.

I'm almost positive that this version is right.  It's at least a lot =

better than the other versions currently posted.  It sure isn't random
picking.

This song was tabbed with help from Bill Ward. (he worked the computer)

"Stumbleine" by the Smashing Pumpkins
Taken from the album Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness
Lyrics written by Billy Corgan and music by the Smashing Pumpkins
Transcribed by Justin Kunz, kunjust@lyco.lycoming.edu


Well this is all from ear, and the majority of this sounds like it is 
concentrated on picking the D and G strings while adding either the bass 
E or high E, and a few times both. Unlike Landslide, which is picked 
pretty randomly, I'm pretty sure there is a followed pattern. Suggestions,
corrections, and comments are welcome.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot. Tuned down 1/2 step like all of Mellon Collie.

					(Just single pick the Eb string,it's easier)
Boredoms in the bathroom shaking out the loose teeth
Sally's in the stirrups, claiming her destiny
And nobody nowhere understands anything (stop in middle of Fig 1 to Fig 2)

About me	               And all...... my dreams       Lost at sea

(Intro again)

(Back to FIG 1)
Jack it up Judy, set your heart alight
Mayfair mistress of the satellites
Misspent youth- faking up a rampage... 

(FIG 2)
to hold off       The real...... slaves         Paid off  and staid

(directly to:)

(for full effect, each time slide your bass Eb down as you are picking)

And what you never knew    | Can never get to you | So fake it

(Repeat chorus again)
I'll be your stumbleine    | I'll be your super queen | And make you


Back to FIG 1:

(for this first one just slide up to 7th fret and wait until 5th bass 
picking part would normally start then pick it up)

Jukebox fuckup, hanging round the drugstore
No matter what you say he'll be back for more
Mommy's in the manger with the little kids
She's got more reasons, she's got my forgets

FIG 2:

Of tears	 and idle threats		misplaced

FIG 3:

And no matter what they do  |  They can't get to you  |  So fake it
I'll be your stumbleine     |  I'll be your super queen | And you make me

Back to FIG 1:

Come around Ruby, I could never sleep alone

(and stop right before the intro picking part)



YOUR WELCOME!!
