This is also how it's been played according to the tab book which I bought when the album came out.

Some of these books are terrible, but the MCIS book was really useful.

Jellybelly was supposed to be the first single but the record company said Bullet would be a better choice. In terms of popular appeal, I think they were right. I can't see jellybey being as big as bullet.

Zero was a single no? I have the CD single... and it had a video. It was definitely pushed to radio and due to being used in the Simpsons was probably the most widely known SP track that year, and would've been as well known as Bullet / TT / 1979.

I think this is the first Pumpkins song that I transcribed a solo for by-ear. I know this probably isn't considered an impressive feat by most guitar players here (especially because this is one of the easier solos), but I'm very lazy and mostly rely on tab, and as such, haven't really developed my transcribing ability that well. So I was pretty pleased with my self that I got it exactly right when I compared it to other people's transcriptions.

The label made the right choice. "Jellybelly" goes hard, but you can't sing the riff to it like you can "duna duna dun dunanananan DUNANANA."

Whenever I think about how Billy wanted Jellybelly to be the first single, I picture the music video for it being pretty much exactly the BWBW one, with the mud people and everything, but the mud people are dancin' around a little more. And I laugh and laugh.

Well I was 5 IPAs deep at that point, and was just curious. I can play an E cord. That's as far as I got with the guitar.

So, I know why I asked this now.

Why do they play with 3 guitarists? What is the girl playing? Is she just backing, Billy? I can hear Billy and James.

It's an honest question.

3 guitars makes sense, as there are (at least) two rhythm guitars on the record and then a lead comes in overdubbed on top. So in the old days one of them would take the solo live and the sound would drop out a bit. The third guitar ensures the live sound remains as close to the recorded sound as possible.

If you're into that kind of thing.

Keep in mind that Katie sometimes joins with acoustic.

Kiki allows Billy to maintain some level of glam metal kitsch as he likes that stuff.

that is not how they really play it

that's what the FBI/CIA/NWA want you to believe is the way they play it

you're going to have to go a little deeper than "youtube.com" if you want the truth

thanks

I'm trying to leave positive rep, but it won't let me: I agree. Once I figure out how to do it, I will. Thanks run2pee.
