Californication Tab

   
This is as correct as i can tell. The original you have on this site is 
definately incorrect however.

Californication by Red Hot Chili Peppers.
Tabbed by Chris Ford. 

Intro, and played throughout verse. The little trill is played by the bass, 
NOT by the guitar.

Repeat RIFF 1 x 2 and throughout verse:
Destruction leads to a very rough road 
But it also breeds creation 
And earthquakes are to a girlís guitar 
Theyíre just another good vibration

And tidal waves couldnít save the world 
>From Californication
Repeat RIFF 3 x 2 and throughout verse:
Pay your surgeon very well 
To break the spell of ageing 
Sicker than the rest 
There is no test 
But this is what youíre craving
