Californication  Red Hot Chili Peppers

Song: Californication
Artist: Red Hot Chili Peppers
Album: Californication
Transcribed by Clint K (IM: Golem1057)
This songs pretty easy.... I added optional bass notes that make it
sound
better if your playing by yourself. I tabbed out the song the way it
goes
on the album.... The verses are all the same, I just retabbed them.
I tried to show some of the spacing between notes, but it's far from
perfect... so you'll probably have to listen to the song while you
play.
(Notes in parentheses are played by the bass.... I think...)

Californication
VMA 2000
This is my take on John Frusciante's solo at the 2000 MTV Video Music
Awards. It sounds nearly perfect to me, execpt I might have an error
or 2 in the middle, but it sounds right for the rest of it. As
for timing, you'll have to find a recording of the VMA, I didn't
really do a lot with it in this tab.
