		 Annie Wants a Baby - RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Brenton Chattin
Email: chattin@adam.com.au

Tuning: Standard


Another great song from "I'm with You", I've worked out most of it, fun song to play.
Practice that vibrato to really get it sounding good. Also really dig into the G string 
while muting the other strings to get the funk sound
The song is really technical rhythmically, so I haven't included the form too much but 
these are the parts you need to play along.


Verses: 0:20 With slight improv, repeat as required

Listen to the song to work out the exact picking because each chord is arpeggiated differently.

That's it, the form might be messed up a bit but all the parts are there. Hopefully it's 
more than enough to play with the track
Learn the bassline too, throw it on loop, and it's easier to practice improvising in the solo.

Thanks

although its quiet accurate and detailed, the pre chorus is a little wrong. after the F he does another Gm and not Bb... check it out...
anyway thanks for the upload!
