Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Tuning
EADGBe (Standard)
F/C looks like this: X33210 - this chord is only used in the prechorus and you could play a normal
F-chord instead.
(You can apply the picking pattern that they use in the real song on the verses if you want, I'm
gonna post them at the bottom so you can use them handily.)

[Verses]
(All the verses have these chords)
Am
Psychic spies from China
            F   
Try to steal your mind's elation
Am
Little girls from Sweden¨
                  F
Dream of silver screen quotations
C                                      G
And if you want these kind of dreams
       F                   Dm
It's Californication

It's the edge of the world
And all of western civilization
The sun may rise in the East
At least it settles in the final location
It's understood that Hollywood
sells Californication

[Prechorus]
(All pre-choruses have these chords)
Am
Pay your surgeon very well
      F/C     (You can just play a normal F-chord)
To break the spell of aging
Am
Celebrity skin is this your chin
      F/C
Or is that war your waging

[Chorus]
(And all choruses have these chords)
Am            F/C
First born unicorn
Am            F/C
Hard core soft porn
C                     G       Dm        Am
Dream of Californication
C                     G       Dm  
Dream of Californication

[Verse]
Marry me girl be my fairy to the world
Be my very own constellation
A teenage bride with a baby inside
Getting high on information
And buy me a star on the boulevard
It's Californication

[Verse]
Space may be the final frontier
But it's made in a Hollywood basement
Cobain can you hear the spheres
Singing songs off station to station
And Alderon's not far away
It's Californication

[Pre-chorus]
Born and raised by those who praise
Control of population everybody's been there
and
I don't mean on vacation

[Chorus]
First born unicorn
Hard core soft porn
Dream of Californication
Dream of Californication

[Verse}
Destruction leads to a very rough road
But it also breeds creation
And earthquakes are to a girl's guitar
They're just another good vibration
And tidal waves couldn't save the world
From Californication

[Pre-Chorus]
Pay your surgeon very well
To break the spell of aging
Sicker than the rest
There is no test
But this is what you're craving

[Chorus]
First born unicorn
Hard core soft porn
Dream of Californication
Dream of Californication

What you call an "F/C" is an Fmaj7 with a C in the bass. The C in the bass doesn't really matter though, you can just play a regular Fmaj7.
