Red Hot Chili Peppers

Red Hot Chili Peppers - Give It Away Version 2 guitar tab

This song is one of the Red Hot Chili Peppers' best, and it is also

one of their hardest

songs ever to tab. I've seen a lot of different tabs on the net,

and none of them are

totally correct. Even this tab is probably wrong on some places.

But anyway, here is my

try on the song:

Tab key:

() = ghost

^ = hold note

*b* = bend the note a little to make a short noise

h = hammer on

+ = quickly rub your plectrum up and down on the strings while

holding the notes

/ = slide up. left note is starting point, right note is ending

point

\ = slide down. left note is starting point, right note is

ending point

x = muted string

The Guitar Solos:

=================

As you already may know, the solos in this song are just different

guitar loops played

backwards. I have made up two riffs for you which sound much like

the CD if you play them.

Use a waah-waah pedal or other effects to get that "blurry" sound.

'X' marks the start of a new measure. There are four beats from

one 'X' to another.

'*' is a beat.

First solo:

Play third part with disortion. Repeat this riff until the song

ends. The song ends

on an A5 chord (x022xx).
