Mayonnaise is the best song ever written. Period.

And I donít mean the best smashing pumpkins song.

Itís the best song of any band I have ever heard in my life.

And no Iím not drunk. Quit drinking.

MCIS Demos I
MCIS Demos II
MCIS Demos III
666
Adore Demos I
Adore Demos II
Machina Acoustic Demos
The Friends & Enemies of Modern Music

i'm not sure about including the reel time sessions or any of the demos that came from it (moon demo, gish basement tape demo), since it also ended up being the studio release versions of lots of those tracks (i am one, not worth asking, by june, daughter, honeyspider I and II) but whatever people think.

pi+f is also the same recordings that ended up on pi so i don't think it's worth including that either. same with the b-sides tape, and sequence iv, gish rough mix, mcis rough mix, etc.


or should we scrap all that and just have qaos vs gravity? cause as if anything else comes close to them.

Okay, Corgan isn't being a dick on that one. That was the only valid possible response.

However, since Shiny and Oh So Bright is only a couple of years old, it's still within reason to rerecord that album with better songs.

His vocals are too low in the mix and not dry enough tho

edit: lol I completely misread that and thought they were asking about re-recording SD

I just do standard because it just seems like too much trouble to re-tune my guitar between songs (well, it really isn't and shouldn't take more than forty seconds, I'm just lazy), but it makes that opening arpeggio a little awkward. I used to be able to play it pretty smoothly, but I've just been getting back into playing guitar after a long lapse, and it's like I can barely do it anymore.

I usually have my guitars in Eb if i'm on a sad kick so I play billy's part [along with metro 93 usually]

but for random strumming just in standard.

i think i tuned to the iha thing and tried the intro like that years ago when i could barely play. can't be arsed doing it again

Finally tuned it to the iha tuning maybe in like 2016 and omg the strums are far more gorgeous doing it that way. Left that guitar that way for the whole summer just for Mayo strummin. Definitely recommend this rather than playing in standard. Also as DK already alludes the arpeggio is easier

i'm assuming they had other guitars to use in more standard tunings.
