And there it is...
This song Rocks but it's really hard to play so I recommend you have 2 guitars
One with a capo at 5 at the other 3 or one at 7 and the other at 5 cos it helps
a lot having a capo on this song - its up to you really however nothing is tabbed
Relative to a capo.

Comments Suggestions or anything like that email me at guitar_rocker_47@Hotmail.com

And lastly if anyone has a correct tab for RHCP californication live with the
improved guitar solo could you please send it to me. BYE!
