Song:   Minor Thing
Artist: Red Hot Chili Peppers
Album:  By The Way

Transcriber: Igor Dedic
             Yugoslavia
     E-mail: dedicbis@neobee.net

I tabbed out the song the way it goes on the album.
I tried to show how to play the chords, but it’s
far from perfect. You’ll probably have to listen
to the song while you play and figure out the rhytm
and the chord playing.

great tab =)
except at the end where you wrote
e-----------------------------|------------------------- \
B------------5--7-------------|-------------5---3^------ |
G-4------4-4--------6---------|-4-------4-4--------6---- |
D-----------------------------|------------------------- |
A-----------------------------|------------------------- |

B------------5--7-------------|-------------5---3^------ |
G-4------4-4--------6---------|-4------------------6---- |
D-----------------------------|------------------------- |
A-----------------------------|------------------------- |
E-----------------------------|------------------------- /

it seems more like for the 3^ it should be 2^ (or easier would be 6^ on the string below would be easier) because it bends to the note on the that third fret, not from it....
so i reckon it should go more like:
e-----------------------------|------------------------- \
B------------5--7-------------|-------------5----------- |
G-4------4-4--------6---------|-4-------4-4-----6^-6---- |
D-----------------------------|------------------------- |
A-----------------------------|------------------------- |
E-----------------------------|------------------------- |
| x 2
e-----------------------------|------------------------- |
B------------5--7-------------|-------------5----------- |
G-4------4-4--------6---------|-4---------------6^-6---- |
D-----------------------------|------------------------- |
A-----------------------------|------------------------- |
E-----------------------------|------------------------- /

what do you think?

apart from that though, as I said, great tab =)
