this is any of the bits that require picking.
for :
the first bar is for the fist lines of the verse.
You'll probably recognise where the second bit comes in - on the last
two lines.

     [Am]                   [F]               [C]         [G]        [F]                                         

needed chords are:
    [Am]   [F]    [C]   [G]   [F]   [Am]                                                                             

i use F the abbriviated way fist time round cos its easier
if you can manage full F then do.
n e way:
Pick this bit
[] P[Am]hycic spies from china
  Try to [F]steal your mind's elation
  [Am]Little girls from sweeden
  Dream of [F]silver screen quotations
  [C]And if you want these [G]kind of dreams
  [F]It's californication.

  [Am]It's the end of the world
  And all of [F]western civilisation
  [Am]The sun may rise in the East
  At least it [F]settles in a final location
  [C]It's understood that [G]Hollywood
  Sell's [F]Californication)
start strumming straight after californication
  [Am]Pay your Surgeon very well
  To [F]break the spell of aging
  [Am]Celebraty skin is this your chin
  Or is [F]it that war your waging.
Chorus :
                  [Am]First born [F]unicorn
                  [Am]Hard core soft [F]porn
                  [C]Dream of cali[G]forni[F]cation
                  [C]Dream of cali[G]forni[F]cation

start picking again

  [Am]Marry me girl be my fairy to the world
  Be my [F]very own constellation
  [Am]A tenage bride with a baby inside
  getting [F]high on information
  [C]And buy me a star from the [G]boulevard
  It's [F]californication
  [Am]Space may be the final frontier
  But it's [F]made in a Hollywood basement
  [Am]Cobain can you hear the spheres
  Singing [F]song from station to station
  [C]And alderaan's not [G]far away it's [F]californication

  [Am]Born and raised by those who praise
  cont[F]rol of population [Am]everybody's been there and
  i do[F]n't mean on vacation

Now comes the solo i've only tabbed the top three strings as these
are all you need.

this bit returns to picking.

  [Am]Destruction leads to a very rough road
  But it [F]also breeds creation
  [Am]And earthquakes are to a girl's guitar
  They're [F]just another good vibration
  [C]And tidal waves couldn't save the world
  From [F]californication

  [Am]Pay your surgeon very well
  To [F]break the spell of aging
  [Am]Sicker than the rest There is no test
  But [F]this is what your craving
