/ The Red Hot Chili Peppers / Californication (1999) / Californication bass tab

Red Hot Chili Peppers
Californication
Album: Californication
Tabbed Correction by:  Stephen Short (sms_stylee@yahoo.com)
Originally tabbed by Robert Petersson (mrschh@post.netlink.se)

The original tab was good, but parts of the prechorus and chorus 
were wrong and I changed the way the verse is played.  I'm about
99.9% sure this is how Flea plays it.

That's it, but the only hard part is learning the variations on
the Prechorus.  Visit my band's site at http://syngd.20m.com
