Tabbed by Charles Benagh (CCBenagh@hotmail.com)

Artist: Red Hot Chili Peppers
Title: Venice Queen
Album: By the Way

Equipment: John Frusciante plays a Fender Strat into a clean Marshall amp.
           For the break, he uses a steel-string dreadnaught acoustic.

Legend:  p - pull off
         h - hammer on
         ~ - vibrato

To get those high pitched notes at the beginning, turn the volume knob down
and play, then increase the volume so it fades in.  Add some delay and 
reverb to add to the spaciness.
