TRANSCENDING
-Red Hot Chili Peppers-

Lyrics & Music: Anthony Kiedis, Flea, Dave Navarro, Chad Smith
From The Album: One Hot Minute (1995)


Tabbed by Linus Olsson (Linuso@hotmail.com)


I searched through the net and saw that there was no guitar tab on my favourite RHCP song
"Transcending", so here goes!


Tab key:

/   = Quick slide up
\   = Quick slide down
XbY = Bend note X to make it sound like note Y
r   = Release bend
h   = Hammer on
()  = Very faint note (ghost note)
x   = Muted string
~   = Vibrate note using the twang bar
s   = A very slow slide made by moving the twang bar straight down/up



MAIN RIFF:
==========

This riff plays on the verses and the refrain.

ENDING:

I'm very unsure about this part. I just tried to tab what I heard through all that
noise, okay?

NOTES:
I believe this tab to be accurate, although a few notes might be wrong (especially in the
ending). If you find a more correct solution, then mail me. Also, I haven't written the
timing in this tab, so play along with the CD to get the rythm.

TECHNICAL INFORMATION:
I think Dave Navarro uses a clean guitar sound with no distortion and a delay effect added.
You can hear the delay effect very clearly on the guitar fill and the bridge. Near the 
ending he uses some sort of a waah-waah effect.


Enjoy!
