          harmonics*       harm.           harm.           harm.

* These harmonics are produced by lightly applying your index
finger to the low E and gradually sliding from around fret 1.75
to 4 or so.  A good way of looking at this is letting your finger
touch the E while setting back up for the C octave chord.

Those high sceams (like the end of the above) are the high E on the 24th

then repeat *1 and that's Zero!

     Zero - Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness
            Transcribed by Adam Morris

I haven't seen this tabbed yet, so here it is.


1/2 step down

* above note means harmonics.  If 2.5 is written that means
that you place your finger RIGHT in the middle of the third
fret.

Practice may be needed to get the right sound out of these
harmonics, but I assure you..they are correct.

Main Riff
|----------------------------------------------------|

|-0-0---0-0---0-0---0-0----0-0-----------------------| 

VERSE2 - Same as VERSE 1 but with the harmonics as well.

Then main riff for a while.

"Emptiness is loneliness..."
|----------------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------------| 
|--9-9-9-----9-9-9-----------------------------------| 
|----------------------------------------------------|
|--7-7-7-----7-7-7-----------------------------------| 
|--0-0-0-----0-0-0-----------------------------------| 

 Weird solo thingy

 It stops..then this pick slide thingy from about the 14th
 fret.
|----------------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------------| 
|----------------------------------------------------| 
|--x-\-----------------------------------------------|
|--x-\-----------------------------------------------|

 Main riff simile all through this bit.
 2 and 3 on the low E string every now and then.

 Then it goes to this
