Subject: Re: Anyone figure out "Landslide" by Smash. Pump.?

I was given this as a lesson song by a folky-type teacher a few years back
when it was more widely known as a Stevie Nicks song.  I agree, it's a very
pretty one.  I've only caught just the end of the Smashing Pumpkins version
for the first time yesterday, but it sounded pretty similar (I thought it
*was* Stevie Nicks 'til I listed closer).  How cool - I used to just know
old, mellow stuff, now I can play a Smashing Pumpkins number!

Anyway, here's a shot at getting this across clearly:

The picking pattern for the verses is

String:     5     3     4     2           3     4
Timing:     1     &     2     &     3     &     4     &

The chords for the verses are
 C:  X32010
G6:  X20030
Am:  X02210

            C     G6     Am     G6

One measure of each, 4 measures per line of lyrics, over and over and over.

The verses are:

C       G6              Am       G6      etc, etc, etc.
Took my love, I took it down
Climbed a mountain and I turned around
And I saw my reflection in the snow covered hills
'Til a landslide brought me down

Oh, mirror in the sky, what is love?
Can the child within by heart rise above?
Can I sail through the changing ocean tides?
      C          G6      Am     G6     C     G6      Am
Can I handle the seasons of my life?

Am7   C    G6    Am

Chorus (you could strum this, or switch to a Cotton or Travis pick):

        G           Am       C
   Well I've been afraid of changing
    G          Am       G           Am
  'Cause I've built my life around you
       G              Am           C           G
   But time makes you bolder, even chldren get older
                  Am          G      Am
1st time:         I'm gettin' older, too
                  A           G      Am        C           G      Am
2nd time:         I'm gettin' older, too.....  I'm getting older, too


Back to the original picking pattern & chords:

Took my love, I took it down
Climbed a mountsain and I turned around
And if you see my reflection i nthe snow covered hills
Will the landslide bring you down?
And if you see my reflection in the snow covered hills
Will the landslide bring you down...Will the landslide bring you down.

Chorus (w/2nd ending)


Happy Picking  :-)

About the artist behind Landslide Chords:

The Smashing Pumpkins are an American alternative rock band that formed in Chicago, Illinois in 1988.[1] While the group has gone through several lineup changes, The Smashing Pumpkins consisted of Billy Corgan (vocals/guitar), James Iha (guitar/vocals), D'arcy Wretzky (bass guitar/vocals), and Jimmy Chamberlin (drums/percussion) for most of the band's recording career.

Disavowing the punk rock roots shared by many of their alt-rock contemporaries,[2] the Pumpkins have a diverse, densely layered, and guitar-heavy sound, containing elements of gothic rock, heavy metal, dream pop, psychedelic rock, arena rock, shoegazer-style production and, in later recordings, electronica. Frontman Billy Corgan is the group's primary songwriter—his grand musical ambitions and cathartic lyrics have shaped the band's albums and songs, which have been described as "anguished, bruised reports from Billy Corgan's nightmare-land".[3]

The Smashing Pumpkins broke into the musical mainstream with their second album Siamese Dream (1993). The group built their audience with extensive touring and their follow-up, the double album Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness (1995), debuted at number one on the Billboard charts. With approximately 18.25 million albums sold in the United States alone,[4] The Smashing Pumpkins were one of the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed bands of the 1990s.[5] However, internal fighting, drug use, and diminishing sales hampered the band and led to a 2000 break-up. In April 2006, the band officially announced that it was reuniting and recording a new album. Returning members Billy Corgan and Jimmy Chamberlin were joined by musicians Jeff Schroeder (guitar/vocals), Ginger Reyes (bass/vocals), and Lisa Harriton (keyboard/vocals) in 2007 to tour in support of their new release, Zeitgeist (2007).
