Bullet With Butterfly Wings Guitar Tablature
My first tab. I'm not listening to the song right now so I don't know how accurate this is. It sounds okay when I play it. Made it in standard in case you are playing somewhere and want to play this song without altering tuning (if using standard already).
song: Bullet With Butterfly Wings
band: Smashing Pumpkins
album: Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness
tuning: Standard (EADGBE)
tabbed by ustilago

Feel free to repeat whenever necessary. Listen to the song and you can figure out when to play what. Hope it helps.
