GEEK U.S.A., from Siamese Dream, Smashing Pumpkins

 - This puppy's just a tad harder than Rhinoceros...here's how I play it.

 - Tuning: (low to high)  Eb A# D# G# B# E# ..., or , you could just drop your
   ------    low E to D and play with a capo, but that's pretty un-Corgan like.
             Whichever you do, bear in mind I transcribed this having changed
             all 6 of my strings.

 INTRO - Heavy Distortion :)

   - The strumming pattern isn't right, so play it any way you think sounds      good.
   - Over the above, lay these licks...

VERSE - hammer on the lower 3 strings with your index and 3rd finger:
     "love, love  let's pretend ...etc"

                                          -0--7--6--0--5-----0----10----

    -  This is the basic fast-tempo metal format of the song; various bridges
     and things include bars on the 10th, 3rd, 5th and zeroth frets.  It would
     take up less space if I ommitted those.

                         James only                     (many strums.....)

   -Again, the strumming pattern isn't perfect.  Repeat the intro part and the
  next verse.  For that 2nd "shot full of diamonds", Billy slaps on a positive
  Octaver.  Also, add these licks over the 2nd intro (confused yet?)

THE LOUNGE ACT - unless your guitar plays backwards, play the following :)
       "In a dream...wrist, t I knew w had forsaken...

   - Those notes at the question marks still piss me off...

SOLO - the only thing I attempted here was the following:
====
      ...to my disease, of my needs...
     |--------------------------------------------------|
     |--------------------------------------------------|
     |-11-11-11-11\10-10-10-10\9-9-9-9/12-12-12-12------|

     |--------------------------------------------------|

OUTRO - wait for bass to do 4 bars, then do a heavy pick scrape and play this:
     "she really loves to break...
   |--------------------------------------------------|r
   |--------------------------------------------------|e
   |--------------------------------------------------|p

   |--0--0--0--7--0--0--0--0--10-10--0--9--9--9--2h3--|t


  then toss your guitar in a corner of your room and relax to Mayonnaise...
