Artist: Red Hot Chili Peppers Song: Funky Monks Album: Blood Sugar Sex Magik (1991) Written By: John Frusciante, Michael “Flea” Balzary, Chad Smith and Anthony Kiedis Tabbed By: Adam Seto
Wow….it took me a grand total of about 2 or 3 hours to tab this whole freakin' song! I to keep flipping through the song, tabbing out what I could and I ended up with this. I hope you guys enjoy, because I busted my chops over this tab. At least it's the whole song. Peace out.
Legend:
/or\ Legato slide (slide to the next note without striking it) b Bend (assume as quarter bend if it is by itself. Ex, 3b NOT 3b4) r Release bend (release bend back to original position) h Hammer-on (strike note with fretting hand without the pick attack) p Pull-off (quickly pull fretting hand off of the note without pick attack) ~~~ Vibrato (rapidly bend and release to give a tremolo effect) () Ghost Note (note rung out into other notes) tr~~ Trill (hammer-on and pull-off rapidly between the 2 notes shown) . Staccato notes (make the note short and choppy) + Tapping (use pick or index finger to hammer on note) > Pick scrape (scrape the pick down the strings towards the bridge) < Pick scrape (scrape pick down the strings towards headstock) _________________________________________________________________________________________
Intro:
Acoustic (finger picking)
With the finger picking, use the index finger and thumb, pull the string outward and to make a twanging sound.
