Subject: Tab for 'Bodies'

"Bodies'  from the album Mellon Collie & the Infinite Sadness by the Smashing Pumpkins

First off, use what Billy calls 'grunge tuning' (dropped D).  Then take that Dropped D and tune it down a
half step to a C#.  In the last guitar world interview  Billy said the whole album was tuned down a half 
to get a deeper sound.  After that, the song is quite easy.

change #1 "...casualties of their own past...."
change #2 "...nobody ..."
I can't remember exactly where in the lyrics the changes are but once you listen to the song you'll know where they are & where changes #1 and #2 go. Be patient with my instructions, this is my first posting. Recommendation: use a light pick to get that guitar attack. Cheers to everyone else who has posted tabs. Much appreciated. I'm waiting for help with the rest of the songs off this double album masterpiece. Especially 'To forgive' & 'Jellybelly'.
