Band: Red Hot Chili Peppers

Title: Charlie

Album: Stadium Arcadium

Tabbed by: Jon Turner jrt5024@gmail.com

 

This song is so funky. I love the backing vocals! Haha, I think I always do. This

song sometimes has that “swing” beat to it where 8th notes aren’t straight

(like * + * + * + *). It’s more like… *..+*..+*..+*. Not all notes are like this, but

some are. I didn’t wanna split everything up more than it is cause it’d take up

twice as much space, but just listen and you can hear what I mean. This is just

a rough idea to get you started if you’re having trouble.
