Jim, could you please post this transcription in the Pumpkins/guitar directory?

   Thanks, Van

RHINOCEROS, from Gish, Smashing Pumpkins

- Aside from the solo, this is unquestionably the easiest song by the Pumpkins
  to play.  It sounds great with two guitars.

Intro:  Guitar1, (clean)
          |----------------------------------------|
          |----------------------------------------|   repeat this for
          |----------9---------9/11--11--11-11-----|   several bars...
          |----------------------------------------|
          |----------7---------7/-9---9---9--9-----|
          |--0---0-------0-0---0-------------------|

        Guitar 2, (flanger and some delay), let top 2 strings ring
        ========
          |-------0-------------0-----------0-----0----0------0-------------
          |-----0-------------0-----------0-----0----0------0---------------
          |---2-----1-----1h2-----1h2---7-----6----4-----/11----9(ring)-----
          |-----------------------------------------------------------------
          |-----------------------------------------------------------------
          |-----------------------------------------------------------------

           ------------------0-----0-----0----0-------0-----0----0-----0----
           ----------------0-----0-----0----0-------0-----0----0-----0------
           -9h11-11/13--14----13----11----9-----/13----11----9-----7--------
           -----------------------------------------------------------------
           -----------------------------------------------------------------
           -----------------------------------------------------------------
                                           (ring, guitar 2 takes a breather)
           -------0-4-------------------0-----------------------------------
           -----0-----0----------0------0-----------------------------------
           -1h2---------2----1-2--------1-----------------------------------
           -----------------------------2-----------------------------------
           -----------------------------------------------------------------
           -----------------------------------------------------------------

VERSE:     Guitar 1, (clean)
                        pow-der show (?),     treasoned my  roots....
          |-------------------------------------------------0---------------
          |-------------------------------------------------0---------------
          |-------9------9/11--11-11-11-----9---13--11-9---11---------------
          |-------------------------------------------------0---------------

          |-0--0-----0-0----------------0-0---0------------10---------------

    - This is the repeating riff in the song; at the D-chord, guitar 2
    arpeggiates the 6 strings.

    - after Billy says "...see you in June...", guitar 1 repeats the intro riff
     while guitar 2 lays this 'Gershwin' riff over it:

          |------------------------------------------------------------------
          |------------------------------------------------------------------
          |----14/16--16-16-16/19--19-19-19\16--16-16-16\14-14-14\13-13-13-13
          |------------------------------------------------------------------
          |----12/14--14-14-14/17--17-17-17\14--14-14-14\12-12-12\11-11-11-11
          |------------------------------------------------------------------

           --------------------------------
           --------------------------------  and so forth...
           --11/13-13-13-13/14--14-14-14---
           --------------------------------
           ---9/11-11-11-11/12--12-12-12---
           --------------------------------

CHORUS:  Guitars 1 + 2,(clean first time, distorted thereafter)
        The way......        she knows....
    |----0-----------3----------0-----------------------  If you're playing a
    |----1-----------3----------3-----------------------  strat, switch to the
    |----0-----------0----------2-----------------------  bottom pick-up to
    |----2-----------0----------0-----------------------  emphasize top string
    |----3-----------2----------------------------------  on that D chord thing
    |----------------3----------------------------------
      C mjr        G mjr      D whatever

BRIDGE: Guitar 1, guitar 2 solos overtop (bigtime distortion)
        |----------------------------------------
        |------------------------5---5-7--7--7---   you get the picture
        |------------------------5---5-7--7--7---
        |-7---7-5---7---5-7-5----5---5-7--7--7---
        |-7---7-5---7---5-7-5----3---3-5--5--5---
        |-5---5-3---5---3-5-3--------------------


2nd VERSE:   join Gershwin riff to the previous repeating riff during
+========      "...open your eyes, to these must I lie?..." and add the bend:

          |---0-------------
          |---0-------------
     .... |--11b1211b12-----    once
          |---0-------------
          |---9-------------
          |--10-------------
FINAL VERSE:    James plays C G D progression while Billy lays these overtop:

  |----------------------------   ---------------------------------------------
  |---------------------------- a ---------------------------------------------
  |---------------------------- n ----11-12--11h12p11p9------------------------
  |---------------------------- d ----------------------12---10-9--------------
  |-(10)b9--7--5--5--7--5--7--9   --------------------------------12-10-9------
  |----------------------------   ----------------------------------------12-10

  The last chord is that weird D.  Hold till fade, then take a step towards the
 amp and weave some magic.
