Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
An easy and acoustic song by John Frusciante from the album "Curtains".

I tabbed it listening and watching it in his music video.

Listen to the song for rythmn.

John doesn't keep the same struming every time, he just plays in time.

Intro: 

1,2,3,4..


G D Am Em (x3)

G D Am


G       D         Am       Em
And then the past recedes

G     D        Am          Em
And I won’t be involved

G     D       Am         Em
The effort to be free

G          D         Am
Seems pointless from above

G          D        Am       Em     
You’re looking down at me

G         D     Am      Em  
I’d rather stay below

G            D           Am       Em
Than have you staring up at me

G             D         Am      B7
It is nowhere I want to go     (Oh)



C        D#min7           Em             D
Ay, this business of how long we try to stay alive

C     D#min7              Em          D
Why to be here you first got to die, so I gave it a try

    C           C/B   Am                      B7
And what do you know, time was so long ago...



G          D         Am       Em
And things come back you see

G        D            Am     Em
To where they don’t belong

G        D        Am   Em
And every drop of sea 

G  D          Am     B7   
Is the whole ocean  (Oh)}



C           D#min7                   Em        D
I lied to the greatest thieves about anything and everything

C   D#min7         Em             D  
I’m a figure of forgotten speech, I’m out of reach

C               C/B               Am              B7
I can’t play it safe, but I might just in case...

C   D#min7         Em                   D
I’m disguised as a reaching hand, I’m a working man

  C       D#min7                Em           D
I don’t understand why clockout come so slow everytime

C                 C/B          Am
That’s one line I stay right behind

C                 C/B          Am    B7  
That’s one line I stay right behind


G D Am Em (x3)

G D Am B7... G
