Walkabout by Red Hot Chili Peppers

Well I've got the *basic* bass parts outlined here.  I've tried to format
the tab to follow the song, but this is a very highly adlibed song both on
flea's part as well as dave navarro and even vocally by kiedis.  Use this 
as just a guideline to how to play it and enjoy!
