I'm still workin' on this tab - it will probably be done 
soon 'cause I love this song.  hehe.
---
This note is appended to my unfinished tabs.  The last couple 
of days I have been working on transcribing the chili peppers 
new album for guitar, and in some cases for bass too 
(although i've hardly ever picked up a bass)   :)      

I've done some of most of the tracks tonight, but I've got a 
major due yesterday and I've got test week coming up... it's 
too much to finish.  I have tabbed the intros and maybe verses 
to most of the songs, to give everyone a start - the idea is 
to get a network of people tabbing the album so it can be 
accurate and available for bands in the near future!  I don't 
play bass or drums, it would be great if other people could 
help out with transcribing instruments, thanks.  

The other idea of tabbing a little bit is to give all you 
guitarists a start; and please help with the tabbing if you 
think you've got better versions/methods/whatever.  If you 
have any corrections, additions (I haven't added song layouts; 
where choruses go and how many verse riffs to play etc... 
these layouts are really helpful for bands), or comments to 
add then don't be lazy and ignore it, email...!  Everyone who 
contributes will get credit, and thanks in advance for your 
effort.

If you want more transription of this particular track, the 
solo, or whatever, then send me or some other transcriber a
_friendly polite_ email with a request of what you're after.
  :)    If we get a lot of requests for a particular song, 
it will get more priority... but polite requests get the 
most attention.

Sorry 'bout the legal stuff at the top, 
but it's gotta be there.  :)
