Song: Give It Away
Artist: Red Hot Chili Peppers


tabbed by Francy [ITA]
My name is Francesco Giampiccolo, if you have any question ask me... My e-mail address 
francesco.giampiccolo@virgilio.it

This is a great song of the RHCP...
I haven't found a great guitar tab in ultimate-guitar, then I put this tab...

(In second measure, bend two measures; bring it back down until
it hits its original note then strike 10 again.  Do this five times 
to make up the whole measure, I was too lazy to write it 5 times.)

2)love is free, love me say "hell yes!"
3)Blessed with a bucket of lucky mobilty.

Play this riff again, and then you play the first half before you go into
the chorus.

Lyrics to sing while playing the riff again:

1)What I've got you've got to get it put it in you.
What I've got you've got to get it put it in you.
What I've got you've got to get it put it in you.
Reeling with the feeling don't stop continue.

Relize I don't want to be a miser,
confide with sly you'll be the wiser.

2)Low brow but I rock a little know how.
No time for the piggies in the hoose-gow.
Get smart get down with the pow wow,
never been a better time than right now.

Bob Marley poet and a prophet,
Bob Marley taught me to off it.

3)My mom I love her cause she love me.
Long gone the times when she scrub me.
Feelin' good my brother gonna hug me.
Drink my juice young love chug-a-lug me.

There's a river born to be a giver.
Keep you warm won't let you shiver.


You should be finished playing figure 1 A by now:

Very nice if there was a solo that would be excellent. I'll just improvise one.

I've cut out the two inverted solos and inverted them back to normal, it's quite fun to listen to, and they're very easy
to transcribe when inverted back to normal! Just mail me at maitinin@gmail.com if you want me to send them to you!
:)
(...really they're a bit of a spoiler, as they really show, what a lame guitarist Frusciante really is, my opinion!)
