If You Have To Ask 
Red Hot Chili Peppers

Intro and Rhythm:
e:-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x--|-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x--|-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-

The chorus is played with two guitars:

e:------------x------------------------|-------------------------------|
B:------------x---10/13----------------|-------------------------------|
G:------------x-------------8/12-------|-------------------------------|
D:--8--10-----x---------------------8--|--10----------8-------8---8----|

G:-------------------------------------|-----------------------------------|
D:-------------------------------------|-----------------------------------|
A:-------------------------------------|-----------------------------------|
E:-------------------------------------|-----------------------------------|

         
Then there's a bridge part:         
 
G9  Gb9  F9  C7  Ebmaj9  Bb7  D7#9   
 
Repeat those chords again, then twice more with some left hand muting.
 

Go to this solo, with the rhythm in the background:

When you're finished, play the rhythm twice more, but end the second one 
with this measure:

e:--x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-------------------|
B:--6-x-x-6-x-x-6-x-------------------|
G:--5-x-x-5-x-x-5-x-5h7-5-------------|
D:------------------------7\5-3-------|
A:-------------------------------5-3h5|
E:------------------------------------|
