             frusciante rules!!!

havana affair - we're a happy family (a tribute to the Ramones).

Actually on the studio version there are two guitars playing.  that's not exactly how 
song is played but i think it's close. REMEMBER: john frusciante's guitar parts aren't a 
of cake to tab...

Intro:

     Bm       D     A
e-------------2--------     (you may play the D chord like  e-----2--|
B-----3------3-------2-                                     B----3---|
G----4-4----2-------2--                                     G---2----|
D---4--(4)---------2---                                     D--0-----|
A--2-------5------0----                                     A--------|
E----------------------                                     E--------|

Verse 1:

    Bm        G         A        F#
e--------------------------------------|
B------3--------3--------5--------2----|
G-----4-4------4-4------6-6------3-3---|
D----4--(4)---5--(4)---7--(7)---4--(4)-|
A---2--------5--------7--------4-------| (Play twicE)
E--------------------------------------|

(Picking)
  Bm            G
BT boat on the way to havana
  A                         F#
i used to make a living man picking the banana
  Bm                    G
Now i'm a guard for the CIA
  A            F#
hooray for the USA

(strumming)
 G                F#
baby baby make me loco
 G                 F#
baby baby make me mambo


    Bm       G      F#
e---------------------|
B----3----------------|
G---4-4-------4-----3-|
D--4--(4)----5-----4--|
A-2---------5-----4---|    (Play twice)
E----------3-----2----|

OhOhOhOh  ohoh  ohoho

play again verse 1: (picking again)

Bm               G
sent to spy on a cuban talent show
A                F#
first stop, havana go-go
Bm                        G
used to make a living man picking the banana
A        F#
hooray  for havana


(strumming now)

G                 F#
Baby baby make me mambo
G                 F#
baby baby make me loco


(Picking)
Bm       G    F#
ohohohoh ohoh ohoh (play twice)

And then:
  A5  B5             D5 E5
e-5-/-7-7-7-7-7-7----5--7-|
B-5-/-7-7-7-7-7-7----6--8-|
G-6-/-8-8-8-8-8-8----7--9-|
D-7-/-9-9-9-9-9-9----7--9-|
A-7-/-9-9-9-9-9-9----5--7-|
E-5-/-7-7-7-7-7-7---------|

then repeat verse 1

on the live version at slane castle john then goes to something like:
(quick strumming and some effect that i can't recognise)

   Bm   G   A   F#
e--10---7---9---6---|
B--12---8---10--7---|
G--11---7---9---6---|
D-------------------|
A-------------------|
E-------------------|

play with the above chords the last part:

Bm               G
sent to spy on a cuban talent show
A                F#
first stop, havana go-go
Bm                        G
used to make a living man picking the banana
A        F#
hooray  for havana

G                 F#
Baby baby make me mambo
G                 F#
baby baby make me loco

Bm       G    F#
ohohohoh ohoh ohoh (play twice)

OR you may play the last part of the song normally just by playing over and over verse 1.
if you have 2 guitars try to mix it up a bit.

I hope that this will help out!!! thanx, mike.

Verses are played with the top four string
and the bridge is A/Bm D E.

...and few other mistakes

e 14--15--17--14-|
B 15--15--17--14-|
G 16--16--18--15-|
