(this is bass AND guitar tab) -------------------------------------------------------------------- Title: Parallel universe Album: Californication Record Label: WEA/Warner Bros. Catalog Number: 47386 Producer: Rick Rubin Release Date: June 08 1999 Transcribed by Wim... questions, comments, critisism, death threats, additions, requests, proposals ----> sirnick@hotmail.com and if you just want to say thank you, then that would be very appreciated :) Johnny uses lots of interesting thirds in this song, and together with flea's bass roots it makes these sort of psychedelic diads. Nifty. But it sounds bad playing the guitar parts on your own... or you can get another guitarist to play flea's parts because they're pretty high. Anyway, this song's pretty good. :) You got to pick all the notes _very_ fast in this song. You have to pick more than I have tabbed, I just thought it would get messy tabbing every note that was hit. Use alternate picking!! ie up/down\up/down etc. for speed key: 5/7 slide up x muted note (deaden the string when you pluck it) Intro: muted strings e:------------------------------| B:------------------------------| G:------------------------------| D:------------------------------| A:------------------------------| E:--x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-| G:------------------------------| D:------------------------------| A:------------------------------| E:---------------------x-x-x-x--| Verse riff: Tremolo picking (pick each note four times :) Cm A# D D# G e:------------------------------------|----------------------------------------| B:------------------------------------|--6-6-6-6-8-8-8-8-----------------------| G:---8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7--|------------------5-5-5-5--4--4--4--4---| D:------------------------------------|----------------------------------------| A:------------------------------------|----------------------------------------| E:------------------------------------|----------------------------------------| G:---5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5------------------|--7-7-7-7-8-8-8-8----------12-10--------| D:-------------------8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8--|------------------5-5-5-5--------13-12--| A:------------------------------------|----------------------------------------| E:------------------------------------|----------------------------------------| Pre chorus at end of verse riff: e:---------------------6666-6666-7777-7777-| B:-----------------------------------------| G:-5555-5555-5555-5555---------------------| D:-----------------------------------------| A:-----------------------------------------| E:-----------------------------------------| G:---------------------12x4-10x4-----------| D:-5555-5555-5555-5555-----------13x4-12x4-| A:-----------------------------------------| E:-----------------------------------------| 0:48 x4 means hit that note four times. I couldn't fit them in because of the double figures. Also, if you're wondering why your bass doesn't have a 5555th fret... man, i dont know what to tell you. ;) Chorus: Step on that distortion pedal!

There is a kind of half-arsed guitar solo for the outro, but it isn't special. It's hard to duplicate that, it's hard to tab - because, basically, if you get a metal zone pedal (the ones that heavy metal bands use) and turn distortion up full, then you can just about not even touch the strings, and that's what your guitar will do *laughing* :) If you're in a band, just impro a better solo. There's no point trying to copy everything note for note, but if you really want it... I probably wont get around to it until college ends in a few weeks. Lyrics: Deep inside of a parallel universe It's getting harder and harder To tell what came first Under water where thoughts can breathe Easily Far away you were made in a sea Just like me Chorus: Christ I'm a sidewinder I'm a California King I swear it's everywhere It's everything Staring straight up into the sky Oh my my a solar system that fits In your eye Microcosm You could die but your never dead spider web Take a look at the stars in Your head fields of space kid Chorus x 2 Psychic changes are born in your heart Entertain A nervous breakthrough that makes us the same Bless your heart girl Kill the pressure it's raining on Salty Cheeks When you hear the beloved song I am with you Chorus x 2
