Song: Californication

Artist: Red Hot Chili Peppers

Album: Californication

 

Transcribed by Clint K (IM: Golem1057)

 

This songs pretty easy.... I added optional bass notes that make it

sound

better if your playing by yourself. I tabbed out the song the way it

goes

on the album.... The verses are all the same, I just retabbed them.

 

I tried to show some of the spacing between notes, but it's far from

perfect... so you'll probably have to listen to the song while you

play.

 

(Notes in parentheses are played by the bass.... I think...)

Californication

VMA 2000

 

This is my take on John Frusciante's solo at the 2000 MTV Video Music

Awards. It sounds nearly perfect to me, execpt I might have an error

or 2 in the middle, but it sounds right for the rest of it. As

for timing, you'll have to find a recording of the VMA, I didn't

really do a lot with it in this tab.
