Smashing Pumpkins tabs

This Time bass tab

Title: This Time
Artist: The Smashing Pumpkins
Album: MACHINA/the machines of God
Tuning: E A D G

Guitar World suggests that you tune your bass up 1/2 step.  But they also warn
that it could damage your bass, so I figured out that you can play this song in
standard tuning.
