kay, I finally got my Red Hot's Blood Sugar Sex Magic book back

from my friend so I'm going to post some of the FAQs about it (as

well as some of my other favorite bits). The songbook has the complete

tab for guitar and bass and seems to be of very high quality --

very detailed. Hopefully you will gain a greater appreciation of

John Frusciante's guitar work from it. Some of the earlier stuff

I posted from it was strictly from my memory, so was wrong in places.

I will be correcting those bits as well.

PLEASE NOTE: I will take requests for other bits of it, as well as

lyrics, but I will only respond to those personages who are actually

posting tab on a fairly regular basis. The ratio of tab requests to

actual tab has been pretty pathetic lately, no?

Another note: To assuage my guilty conscience about posting copy-

righted material (and possibly taking money out of the pockets of

one of my favorite bands), let me give the address of the company

who makes it:

Amsco Publications

Music Sales Corporation

225 Park Avenue South

New York, NY 10003

I would certainly encourage any of you to pick up a copy if you get

the chance. And now, on to the music:



Somebody (Big Toe?) was right: this song is listed as "capoed on

the 4th fret". That's really the only way to get the intonations

in the right key.













and repeat that for the verses. (Chords for bridge and chorus

may follow later). Here are lyrics:

I am a man cut from the know

Rarely do friends come and then go

She was a girl soft but estranged

We were the two our lives rearranged

Feeling so good that day

A feeling of love that day


Twisting and turning your feelings are burning

You're Breaking The Girl

She meant you no harm

Think you're so clever but now you must sever

You're Breaking The Girl

He loves no one else

Verse 2:

Raised by my dad, girl of the day.

He was my dad, that was the way.

She was a girl left alone

Feeling the need to make me her home.

I don't know what or why

the twilight of love had arrived
