Red Hot Chili Peppers - Turn It Again tab

------------------------
RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS
Turn It Again
------------------------


Transcribed by: Andres (la_laker83 at hotmail dot com)


This tab's a little long because of the several
variations John plays through Verse and Chorus
Also the solo takes up half of the tab


/ = slide up/down
p = pull-off
h = hammer-on
b = full bend to numbered fret (e.g. 17b20)
^ = small bend
x = left hand muted

INTRO

Here are the riffs for the Intro and Verses.
They are mostly the same except for the end,
which changes through verses.

GUITAR 1:

Guitar 1 stops playing the Chorus, and starts with a lot
of tremolo picking here.
I've tried to tab it approximate to John's improvising,
although I know it's not exact.

I hope it's close enough
It may be hard to understand with more than 1 guitar
If so, just stick to Guitar 1 and it'll sound ok
