Tab sounds great, except I think the drums might be a bit off?? Not that it matters, but I'm pretty sure Omar plays the lead parts, and john frusciante plays the rhythm bits (usually). Some things seem odd to me, though, like fair enough you chose to write the breakdown in a compound time signature instead of continues 9/4, but why choose 7/8 and 11/8 if the first event in each bar of 11/8 is a rest?? Wouldn't 4/4 and 5/4 make more sense with the rest at the end of the 4/4 measure?? The time signatures here seem terribly arbitrary, like alluding to complexity that isn't in the song. This is their 'simple, acoustic pop album' after all. My 2 cents, for what it's worth.

the reason the time signatures are what they are is because I used a previous tab which was pretty lacking as a template - you're right, they are kinda arbitrary, I just never got around to changing them, odd time sigs are not really my forte.

the snare/kick patterns of the drums are definitely correct, but the hi-hat and cymbal rhythms might be all over the place because they're pretty low in the mix, I guessed with a lot of them just to fill it out.

as for omar/john, I'd heard the opposite - because Omar is the producer as well, apparently, but I could be wrong. Thanks for the comment, hopefully the notes are at least all right, now if only I could work out what the **** Marcel is doing
