Red Hot Chili Peppers - Storm In A Teacup tab

Storm in a Teacup
Red Hot Chili Peppers
Stadium Arcadium

This is my first tab so please give me some feedback. Thanks!

Standard Tuning

Intro: Frusciante plays this by strumming all the way through, muting the
other strings and only hitting D, the way he plays Cant Stop,
(There are no hammer-ons or pull-offs, he strums every note).
