~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
ATAXIA is a 3 man experimental group formed by John Frusciante of the Red Hot Chili
Peppers, Joe Lally of Fugazi, and Josh Klinghoffer of bicycle thief. The band united in
2004 to release one of the albums in Johns astonishing 5 record/1 year series. Together
ATAXIA has written two full length albums and produced one, the second to be released
early in 2005 with no official word out yet about a tentative release date.

John Frusciante: Guitar/vocals
Joe Lally: Bass
Josh Klinghoffer: Drums

     This song is the third track off of the second album in John Frusciante's five
record series. You can listen to the song somewhere on John's site (www.johnfrusciante.com)

Tuning: standard (as far as i know)
Sound: light distortion played by a H/H Guitar. Chorus w/delay is present.
NOTE: the lines tabbed are more like "phrasing lines" rather than bar lines.

    I'm almost certain that this is correct but there are parts of the song
that i looked over to optimize time where John more than likely improvised
for one or two bars but i'm sure that you can figure it out on your own...
