                             Red Hot Chili Peppers - Get On Top
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: Anthony C (rhcp_guitarist at Ultimate Guitar)

This is one of the first tabs I did, when I was still learning, so I have updated the interlude chords. 
As the comments will tell you the old ones sounded wrong. These new ones are correct but they are in 
open position. John plays these in inversions up the neck although another version of this song has these
correct. Updated the solo too!

Tuning: standard (low to high - eadgbe)
Intro/Verse...w/ distorted wah wah pedal
e|------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------|
G|------------------------------------|
D|--------5555----------5555----------|
A|-7-7-------------7-7----------------|
E|------------------------------------|
Just put in the wah-wah timing yourself....its very 
straight forward, just a few wahs to each note.
Repeat this riff Until the chorus.

Chorus...Clean
e|-------------------------------------------------|     |------12-|
B|-------------------------------------------------|     |------12-|
G|--2-2-5-5------0-2-5-5------2-2-5-5------0-2-5-5-|     |-0-2--12-|
D|-------------------------------------------------|     |---------|
A|-------------------------------------------------|     |---------|
E|-------------------------------------------------|     |---------|
("Complications of a Mastermind")                       (at the halfway point)
Play this 4 and a half times, then play:

End of Chorus...clean
e|-12--12--12-------12---|
B|-12--12--12-------12---|
G|-12--12--12-------12---|
D|-----------------------|
A|-----------------------|
E|-----------------------|

Now the Intro/Verse Again

And Now the Chorus Again

Interlude...Guitar 1: w/ clean wah wah - the guitar solo starts at the third line of the chords

Dmin       Amin         Dmin        Amin   
Bb         Amin         Bb          Amin
Dmin       Bb     C     Dmin  Emin  Bb     C
Am         BBB
           (B major chords)


Guitar 2: w/ an overdrive effect                   
e|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--/10-8-6-6/8-----------------/10--13--/10--------13-------------|
G|---------------5/7------5-7--------------------------------------|
D|--/7--5-3-3/5-----------------/7---10--/7---------10-------------|
A|---------------3/5------3-5--------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------------|

e|-10/12-8---8/10------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--7/9--5---5/7--------5-7---7/9-------9/10-----10/12----9-----9/11-11-11---|
D|----------------5/7--------------------------------------------------------|
A|----------------------3--5--5/7-------7/8-------8/10----7-----7/9--9--9----|
E|----------------3/5--------------------------------------------------------|



Thats it! Enjoy. -Anthony

The interlude seems a bit off, for the C chord, I'd play it like x,10,8,9,8,12. I'll see about the other chords later, my wah pedal died on me half way through, typically.

Oh yeah, the bit that you've put in here is the correct ending to the chorus, but why not update the tab?
