Red Hot Chili Peppers - Under The Bridge

tabbed by: Peter the Great

ok, here goes.
this is my tab for it at standard tuning, no capo and one guitarist.
i played this for my final music exams.
sounds damn good
still, just a basic tab of it

[Intro]

e|---------------------------------------------------------|
B|--3-----------3--------------2---------------------------|
G|--------2--------2-----------------------3---------------|
D|-----4-----4--------4-2-0----------4--------4--4-2--0----|
A|--5-----------------------4-----4-----4---------------2--|
E|-----------------------------2---------------------------|

e|---------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------3h5p3--------------2--------------------------|
G|------3---3-------------2-----------------------3--------------|
D|-3/4----4-------------------4/6--6--------4--------4--4-2-0----|
A|-4/5----------5-------------5/7--7-----4-----4--------------2--|
E|------------------------------------2--------------------------|

  repeat that twice of course, but...
  before you come into the verse, DON'T play this:
e|----------             ---------|
B|----------             ---------|
G|----------             --3------|
D|-4-2-0----  play this  ----4----|
A|-------2--             ------4--|
E|----------             ---------|


[Verse part 1]

e|-----------------4--5-----------------5--|
B|--9--7-------9---4--5------9--7--9----5--|
G|--9--8-------9---4--6------9--8--9----6--|
D|--9--9--9h11-----6--7------9--9--11---7--|
A|--7--9--9h11-----6--7------7--9--11---7--|

B|--9--7--9---4--5------9--7--9----5----9--|
G|--9--8--9---4--6------9--8--9----6----8--|
D|--9--9--11--6--7------9--9--11---7----9--|
A|--7--9--11--6--7------7--9--11---7----7--|
E|-----------------------------------------|


[Verse part 2]
       *
e|------------------------------4--5-5h7p5----|
B|--9--9--7-7---------------9---4--5-------5--|
G|--9--9--8---8h9p8---------9---4--6----------|
D|--9--9--9---------9--9h11-----6--7----------|
A|--7-----9------------9h11-----6--7----------|
E|--------------------------------------------|

       *
e|---------------------------5--5---|
B|--9--9--7-7----------9-----5----5-|
G|--9--9--8---8h9p8----9-----6------|
D|--9--9--9---------9--11----7------|
A|--7-----9------------11----7------|

G|--9--9--8---8h9p8---------9---4--6----------|
D|--9--9--9---------9--9h11-----6--7----------|
A|--7-----9------------9h11-----6--7----------|
E|--------------------------------------------|

       *           *
e|-------------------5-5----7--|
B|--9--9--7--7--/9---5---5--9--|
G|--9--9--8--8--/9---6------8--|
D|--9--9--9--9--/11--7------9--|
A|--7-----9-----/11--7------7--|
E|-----------------------------|


[Chorus]
e|-9-----------7--9---x-x--|
B|-10-0-0--0---7--10--x-x--|
G|-11-9-9--9---8--11--x-x--|
D|-11-9-9--9---9--11--x-x--|
A|-9--7-7--7----------x-x--|
E|-------------------------|

  then back into the verse progression
  one variation John plays in this part is:
e|        ----------           ------------------------|
B|        -------9--           -------9----9-----------|
G|instead -------9--           -------9----9-----------|
D|of      --9h11---- play this --9h11---11-------------|
A|this    --9h11----           --9h11---11-------------|
E|        ----------           ------------------------|


[Verse]

[Chorus]


[Bridge]

e|--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0----|
B|--5--5--5--5--3--3--1--1----|
G|--6--6--5--5--4--4--2--2----|
D|--7--7--5--5--5--5--3--3----|
A|----------------------------|
E|----------------------------|


  play that a few times then:
e|-----------------------|
B|-----------------------|
G|-2-2-2-2--1-1--4-4-----|
D|-3-3-3-3--2-2--5-5-----|
A|-3-3-3-3--2-2--5-5-----|
E|-1-1-1-1--0-0--3-3-----|

  although, when playing live, John plays this
  and it sounds alot better:
e|------------------|
B|------------------|
G|-2-2-2-2--9-9-12--|
D|-3-3-3-3--9-9-12--|
A|-3-3-3-3--7-7-10--|
E|-1-1-1-1--0-0-----|

then back to the bridge but with some variations towards
the end

e|--0--0--0--0----3p0----0--0--0--0-------------|
B|--5--5--5--5-5------5--3--3--1--1--1---3p1----|
G|--6--6--5--5--5-----5--4--4--2--2----------2--|
D|--7--7--5--5-----------5--5--3--3----3--------|
A|----------------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------------|

repeat, as you do, slow down then end on

e|--0--|
B|--2--|
G|--2--|
D|--2--|
A|--0--|
E|-----|
