Artist: Red Hot Chili Peppers
Song: Slow Cheetah


Band:  Red Hot Chili Peppers
Title: Slow Cheetah
Album: Stadium Arcadium
Tabbed by: Jon Turner jrt5024@gmail.com

I love the guitar part here so much. The ending acoustic guitar part is very
Simon & Garfunklesque. By the way, I usually never write hammer-ons and pull-
offs cause it takes up too much room and distracts from the rhythm. You can
usually tell just by knowing the song which is right for the situation (whether
playing with Hs and Ps or plucking each note). There are a few notes in this
song (the low F# chord during the acoustic verse and chorus, and the Eb chord at
some later parts) that sound an octave lower than I may have marked. I think
it’s just my bass speakers though, but it’s possible Flea is using an octave
pedal or some sort of bass-booster that makes higher notes vibrate bassfully. I
don’t think his E is tuned to an Eb. 

*NOTE - The Rhythm is really important in this song. Pay attention to what I
wrote, it’s mostly correct. Also pay attention to little details cause Flea has
a lot of tiny variations that you might not notice if you’re reading it quickly.
I wrote out mostly everything because almost every line is different somehow.
