you know who wrote it

I've only had the box since Saturday so I haven't had a chance to figure out
anything but the main riff.

Date: Mon, 13 Jan 1997 08:22:44 +0100 From: Chris Breeze Tabbed by : Chris Breeze Smashing Pumpkins - "The aeroplane flies high (turns left, looks right)" >From the single "The aeroplane flies high (turns left, looks right)" taken from the album "Mellon Collie and the infinite sadness" Written by Billy Corgan Ok, first this is my first tab ever and I`m really not a good guitar player, but hey ! Rome wasn't built in a day, I`m just begining to learn !. I`m pretty sure that this song is played 1\2 step tuned down (tab is represented normal tuning) This song is real easy and you should understand it by looking at this tab. I wonder if someone out there would be kind enough to explain to me how to "D tune" the guitar, and "1\2 step down", "low to high", and other things of interest. Any really big SP fans out there like me ? Hey ! They rock BIG TIME ! I met Billy and the band earlier this year, I collect bootlegs and whatever one may find with the band. Got the "aeroplane flies high box set" yet ? If you haven't, go get it if you can cuz there's only like 5000 in the world ! I`ve got it and u should too ! If u got some SP bootlegs and want to trade or sell, contact me ! And maybe I`ve got some that I might give up ! Smashing Pumpkins - "The aeroplane flies high (turns left, looks right)" Repeat throughout the whole song :
x8 x5 x3 x11 x2 x2 x1|--2---1---0---6---9----4---4------------------------------------------------||--2---1---0---6---9----4---4------------------------------------------------||--3---2---1---7---10---5---5------------------------------------------------||--4---3---2---8---11---6---6------------------------------------------------||--4---3---2---8---11---6---6------------------------------------------------||--2---1---0---6---9----4---0------------------------------------------------|
(at some point the distortion kicks in (and later it goes off), you'll know when just by listening to the cd, it's a simple song, I don't know the solo !) Basic Lyrics : (some repeats here and there, listen to the song and you'll get it!) * "I really don't wanna look stupid when I`m sleeping" "I never really liked sunny days" "the black wings just reach out to me over a distance, and I can feel...the wind from my wings" "I see the clouds, I feel the ocean with my feet" "and I`m home again..... (or something?)" "requires an ability to judge distance" "the aeroplane turns left, looks right" love is a sentimental heart life is a sentimental way spy the fragile heart so cursed as he walks across the earth I`m disconnected by your smile disconnect a million miles and what you promies me i hope will set you free I`m disconnected by your smile and all I gave to you is lost and all you took from me is lost black wings carry me so high up to meet you in the sky I`m disconnected by your smile disconnect a million miles and what you promies me i hope will set you free I`m disconnected by your smile wishing you were real to me wishing I could make belive I`ll take my secrets to the grave safely held beneath the waves always knew I couldn't save always knew I couldn't save you * Billy speaks this in the start of the song over basic chord progession. (also there is alot of mumbling in this song, but it isn't that important to the song so I didn't care to include it)
