Hey y’all this is the 1000% correct version
Of this song.  Its straight from the tab book and is what
John Frusciante plays.  I’ve made it simple although
It’s still long.  Chords above indicate overall tonality
Of measure. (For those who’ll play with a rhythm
Guitar).  Play to the CD to hear everything correctly.
Especially the solos, the timing isn’t shown properly.

Notes:
() Or [] Notes in brackets don’t need to be played
\  = Legato slide, strike first note and slide to next note     
without striking anything else
h = hammer on
p = pull off
v = vibrato
s = slide

Tuning: standard low 2 high EADGBE
