Detroit - Red Hot Chili Peppers 
----------------------------------------------------------------- 
Tabbed by: Alex Perkins
Email:  
Tuning: E Standard 

I made this because there are no other tabs around for this great tune. 
It's all done by ear so it might not be 100%, feel free to let me know 
whats wrong and good etc. 

EDIT: Edited the main parts to fit with how Josh plays them, and added the different fills.

This part is a bugger to figure out since it's masked in reverb, delay, wah
and god knows what else. So I did what i could, it's pretty much a section you
can improv over. As pointed out in the comments is a pentatonic lick and I can't be
asked to tab it. Someone else can.

It's a good tab, if you want to make a great one here is what I think you should do: - Tab when a string is muted but still be played as a muted note in the main riff you can hear that Josh isn't alternating picking between the two E notes, in live perfomances he plays the E note on the D string and muting the A string giving that scratchy sound. And sometimes he plays fills like a slide from D note do E note or a grace note on G note.-In the Pre-chorus the progression isn't C G A (E) but C G D A (E).-I don't know if you can hear but in the Chorus there's some bends thru the chords and you only tabbed tonic and the third for each chords. Also you could display the chords above the tabbed so the beginners will understand better. So the progression consists in a Bm, Bb, D, F#m, G.-Display the exactly time starts each section.-There's some variations in the last Chorus with an addition of another guitar with a Wah pedal.-The "solo" is a simple pentatonic lick you can take easy, won't be a problem if you hear more closer.The last but not least, your have to tab thinking like you are tabbing for a person who never have listen the song before, if he can read you tab he'll play exactly the same as the original song. So detailing at the maximum is a good thing. This is what a you should improve in your tab.Kind regards
