hey, this is almost exactly perfect. it actually perfect. except the way flea plays it is instead of slapping the A, he is accually slapping an open D. same note. just that i was trying to firgure it out myslef, and he never moves his hand. and it makes sense because it is easier to play while he jumps around. well it is only an octave. and doesn't change the song at all, just the way you play it. have fun, and thank the man who created this great tab. Flea is the man.
