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.
