Red Hot Chili Peppers - What Is Soul?
Tabbed By: Dave
EMail: dunderscoredawson@hotmail.com


Tuning: Standard (E A D G B E)

This is from their live DVD 'Off The Map'. That bit where John 
goes mental - can't do it. But here is the basics of it.


E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------||
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------||
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------||
D|---------------------------------3-----------------------------------------||
A|---3--3-5-------------------3-------5--3-----------------------------------||

E|---5-----5---------1---3-----3-4-5-----------------------------------------||


This is the main riff, and is the same on bass. In between the riffy bits, just

play little funk fills, favourites including the slide down of:


E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------||
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------||
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------||
D|--12\\-------------------------------------------------------------------------||
A|--13\\------------------------------------------------------------------------||
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------||

or little in-key twiddles:

E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------||
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------||
G|--7---5\\----------------------------------------------------------------------||
D|----------------------5--7--5-------------------------------------------------||
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------||
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------||

or simply rest your fingers over the fretboard without hitting notes and strum funkily,

but this is better with a wa-wa pedal, as is the rest of the song. Anyway, Frusciante

quickly sets off in the song to play a couple octaves higher:

E|----------------------10--------------------------------13--10-------------||
B|--10---13------10--13-----------x-x-x-x--x---10--13-10----------13---------||
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------||

E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------||

E|---------------------10-----------------------13--10-----------------------||
B|--10--13---10----13---------------10--13--10----------13-------------------||
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------||
D|---------------------------xxxxx-------------------------------------------||
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------||
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------||

E|--------------------10-----------------------------13--10------------------||
B|--10--13--10---13--------------------------11--13----------13--------------||
G|-----------------------10--12----12-13-14----------------------------------||
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------||
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------||
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------||


this is a really easy song to play, and with a bit of wah-wah sounds really classy.
 I've fooled people into thinking i'm good.
