			     Song for a Son - Smashing Pumpkins

Tuning: E A D G B e (Standard)


This is a very beautiful, yet straightforward song. I would like to start off
right chords:

	Am	C	 D	 F	 E	 E7
	0	 0	 2	 1	 0	 0
	1	 1	 3	 1	 0	 3
	2	 0	 2	 2	 1	 1
	2	 2	 0	 3	 2	 2
	0	 3	 0	 0	 2	 2
	0	 0	 0	 0	 0	 0

These are repeated in order throughout the verses. During the breaks between
verses the order goes.

	Am	C	D	Am	C	D	F	E	E7

So that's that. If you want to get the sound closer to the song, some chord
manipulation must occur. The alternations vary, and here's my best guess:

Am - Hammer on your pinky on the B string, then pull off your pinky, then
     index finger, then hammer on with your index again. Kind of like this


C and D - After the initial strum, pick each string of the chord

F - Pull off and hammer on your middle finger

E - After the first beat, place your pinky finger on the second fret of 
the 'G' string, then take it back off


Also, If you're like me, you really like that little intro riff he plays:


I really hope you guys enjoy the song as well as this tab. I was just recently
introduced to the Pumpkins by a friend of mine and I would like to thank her
very much for doing so. This is my first tab and I tried to be as accurate
as possible, I know how you fans can be sometimes. :)

Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

(Thanks to my Smashing Pumpkins friend for helping me with the changes!)
