Lyrics:

My friends are so depressed
I feel the question of your loneliness
Confide 'cause I'll be on your side
You know I will you know I will

Ex-girlfriend called me up
Alone and desperate on the prison phone
They want to give her seven years
For being sad

Chorus:
I love all of you
Hurt by the cold
So hard and lonely too
When you don't know yourself

My friends are so distressed 
And standing on the brink of emptiness
No words I know of to express
This emptiness

Chorus

Imagine me taught by tragedy
Release in peace

I heard a little girl
And what she said 
Was something beautiful
To give your love 
No matter what she said

Red Hot Chili Peppers
Solo from My Friends
Tabbed by Keith Barron

I noticed there were some pretty accurate tabs for "my friends"
but none of them contained the solo. I am tabbing it from memory
but I guarantee its right. If you dont agree then e-mail me

...Then to Bridge...

E, G6, F#7sus4, Fmaj7#11, C, Bsus4, F5............

The end of the song is cool also.
That great distorted guitar comes back into this acoustic 
song and probably plays this:

b--10--10--10--10--10--10--10--10--I        
g--11--11--11--11--11--11--11--11--I        

b--10--10--10--10--10--10--10--10--I
g--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--I

b--10--10--10--10--10--10--10--10--I
g--10--10--10--10--10--10--10--10--I

b--10--10--10--10--10--10--10--10--I
g---9---9---9---9---9---9---9---9--I

b--10--10--10--10--10--10--10--10--I
g--11--11--11--11--11--11--11--11--I

b--10--10--10--10--10--10--10--10--I
g--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--I


b--10--10--10--10--10--10--10--10--I
g--10--10--10--10--10--10--10--10--I

b--5---5---5---5---5---5---5---5---I
g--5---5---5---5---5---5---5---5---I

These are all sixteenth notes....
....This about all you need but if you
have trouble with the tab you know where 
to reach me.

On the solo you bend 13th fret a full step--
--which sounds like 15th fret of course.
And it sounds better if you slide directly to 
the next note without hitting it.

This song is a lot less funky than some of RHCP's harder songs but It's 
still really good. 

This TAB transcription was created using TAB MASTER version 1.0
It makes tabbing songs a whole lot easier. If you want to you can 
download it through the OLGA resources\tab utilities it is called tablat.

P.S. I'm not sure about the F6 Chord in the chorus so if you find 
something that works better E-mail me at .

Lyrics:

My friends are so depressed
I feel the question
Of your loneliness
Confide... cause I'll be on your side
You know I will, you know I will      
 
X Girlfriend called me up
Alone and desperate
On the prison phone
They want... to give her 7 years
For being sad

Chorus :
I love all of you
Hurt by the cold
So hard and lonely too
When you don't know yourself

My friends are so distressed
And standing on
The brink of emptiness
No words... I know of to express
This emptiness

Chorus :
Imagine me taught by tragedy
Release is peace
I heard a little girl
And what she said
Was something beautiful
To give... your love
No matter what

I'm not that great a guitar player, but the chorus transcribed on the "My
Friends" tab is all wrong. It should go something like this:


C  G    Am 
I  love all of you 

C    D      A    
Hurt by the cold


C  G        Am
So hard and lonely too


C    D         A  
When you don't know yourself
