Tuning: Standard (E A D G B E)

This is from their live DVD 'Off The Map'. That bit where John

goes mental - can't do it. But here is the basics of it.

E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------||

B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------||

G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------||

D|---------------------------------3-----------------------------------------||

A|---3--3-5-------------------3-------5--3-----------------------------------||

E|-5--5------x-x--x-x-x-x---5---5-------------x-x-x-x-x----------------------||

E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------||

B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------||

G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------||

D|-----------------------------------------3---------------------------------||

A|------3-----3--5-------------------3--5-----5--3---------------------------||

E|---5-----5---------1---3-----3-4-5-----------------------------------------||

This is the main riff, and is the same on bass. In between the riffy bits, just

play little funk fills, favourites including the slide down of:

E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------||

B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------||

G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------||

D|--12-------------------------------------------------------------------------||

A|--13------------------------------------------------------------------------||

E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------||

or little in-key twiddles:

E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------||

B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------||

G|--7---5----------------------------------------------------------------------||

D|----------------------5--7--5-------------------------------------------------||

A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------||

E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------||

or simply rest your fingers over the fretboard without hitting notes and strum funkily,

but this is better with a wa-wa pedal, as is the rest of the song. Anyway, Frusciante

quickly sets off in the song to play a couple octaves higher:

E|----------------------10--------------------------------13--10-------------||

B|--10---13------10--13-----------x-x-x-x--x---10--13-10----------13---------||

G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------||

D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------||

A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------||

E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------||

E|---------------------10-----------------------13--10-----------------------||

B|--10--13---10----13---------------10--13--10----------13-------------------||

G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------||

D|---------------------------xxxxx-------------------------------------------||

A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------||

E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------||

E|--------------------10-----------------------------13--10------------------||

B|--10--13--10---13--------------------------11--13----------13--------------||

G|-----------------------10--12----12-13-14----------------------------------||

D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------||

A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------||

E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------||

this is a really easy song to play, and with a bit of wah-wah sounds really classy.

I've fooled people into thinking i'm good.
