Title: Charlie
Album: Stadium Arcadium
Tabbed by: Jon Turner jrt5024@gmail.com

This song is so funky. I love the backing vocals! Haha, I think I always do. This 
song sometimes has that “swing” beat to it where 8th notes aren’t straight 
(like * + * + * + *). It’s more like… *..+*..+*..+*. Not all notes are like this, but 
some are. I didn’t wanna split everything up more than it is cause it’d take up 
twice as much space, but just listen and you can hear what I mean. This is just 
a rough idea to get you started if you’re having trouble.
