Author Notes

If you're only familiar with Smashing Pumpkins singles and maybe want to get more into the band, I highly suggest you check this track out, it's a classic. 
 
Clocking in at just under 7 minutes (6:58), this song doesn't have a repetitive bone in its body. This is where the warm, fuzzy tones of Siamese Dream come to shine on guitar, which has 3 solos spread throughout the song. Bass is full of HO/PO and is quite enjoyable all around. Drums are the highest difficulty instrument as Jimmy really lets his jazz roots take hold of the song about 4:30 in.
 
Update 1: Various animation/venue fixes
 
Update 2: Drum chart fixes (see my thread for specifics). Also some venue changes (notably at the very end).
 
Update 3: Added all the missing sustains on bass, plus added a few missing notes. I also added a new Unison Phrase.

Thanks! :)

I agree, I think that guitar and bass are both very fun without being too challenging.

This is great. Thank you.

I think it was the best song on the album and amazingly this song was never released as a single.
