TRANSCENDING

-Red Hot Chili Peppers-

 

Lyrics & Music: Anthony Kiedis, Flea, Dave Navarro, Chad Smith

From The Album: One Hot Minute (1995)

 

 

Tabbed by Linus Olsson (Linuso@hotmail.com)

 

 

I searched through the net and saw that there was no guitar tab on my favourite RHCP song

"Transcending", so here goes!

 

 

Tab key:

 

/ = Quick slide up

\ = Quick slide down

XbY = Bend note X to make it sound like note Y

r = Release bend

h = Hammer on

() = Very faint note (ghost note)

x = Muted string

~ = Vibrate note using the twang bar

s = A very slow slide made by moving the twang bar straight down/up

 

 

 

MAIN RIFF:

==========

 

This riff plays on the verses and the refrain.

NOTES:

I believe this tab to be accurate, although a few notes might be wrong (especially in the

ending). If you find a more correct solution, then mail me. Also, I haven't written the

timing in this tab, so play along with the CD to get the rythm.

 

TECHNICAL INFORMATION:

I think Dave Navarro uses a clean guitar sound with no distortion and a delay effect added.

You can hear the delay effect very clearly on the guitar fill and the bridge. Near the

ending he uses some sort of a waah-waah effect.

 

 

Enjoy!
