Lyrics:
My friends are so depressed I feel the question of your loneliness Confide 'cause I'll be on your side You know I will you know I will
Ex-girlfriend called me up Alone and desperate on the prison phone They want to give her seven years For being sad
Chorus: I love all of you Hurt by the cold So hard and lonely too When you don't know yourself
My friends are so distressed And standing on the brink of emptiness No words I know of to express This emptiness
Chorus
Imagine me taught by tragedy Release in peace
I heard a little girl And what she said Was something beautiful To give your love No matter what she said

Red Hot Chili Peppers Solo from My Friends Tabbed by Keith Barron
I noticed there were some pretty accurate tabs for "my friends" but none of them contained the solo. I am tabbing it from memory but I guarantee its right. If you dont agree then e-mail me

(*)These are grace notes. Don't hit notes after slide let them flow :)

...Then to Bridge...
E, G6, F The end of the song is cool also. That great distorted guitar comes back into this acoustic song and probably plays this:
b--10--10--10--10--10--10--10--10--I g--11--11--11--11--11--11--11--11--I
b--10--10--10--10--10--10--10--10--I g--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--I
b--10--10--10--10--10--10--10--10--I g--10--10--10--10--10--10--10--10--I
b--10--10--10--10--10--10--10--10--I g---9---9---9---9---9---9---9---9--I
b--10--10--10--10--10--10--10--10--I g--11--11--11--11--11--11--11--11--I
b--10--10--10--10--10--10--10--10--I g--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--I
b--10--10--10--10--10--10--10--10--I g--10--10--10--10--10--10--10--10--I
b--5---5---5---5---5---5---5---5---I g--5---5---5---5---5---5---5---5---I
These are all sixteenth notes.... ....This about all you need but if you have trouble with the tab you know where to reach me.
On the solo you bend 13th fret a full step-- --which sounds like 15th fret of course. And it sounds better if you slide directly to the next note without hitting it.
