I Could Have Lied Tab

I Could Have Lied









By: David Harrison (blaze@interlog.com)
  w/correction by James Harding (insperatus@home.com)
Song: "I Could Have Lied" by "RHCP"
Album: "Blood Sugar Sex Magik" (1991)

This is, in my opinion, one of the best songs the Chili Peppers have ever
made. It's not very hard to play but you might need to practice the solo's
for a while before you're able to play them well without having to look at
the tab sheet.

Part way into to the second solo change the [Chorus] to the following picking
pattern. It's still the same chords though...
