Under The Bridge Tab

Red Hot Chili Peppers - Under The Bridge

tabbed by: Peter the Great

ok, here goes.
this is my tab for it at standard tuning, no capo and one guitarist.
i played this for my final music exams.
sounds damn good
still, just a basic tab of it

* = put ABOVE the chord which should be upstroked
h = hammer on
p = pull off (hands on the guitar now!!!)
/ = slide up

intro:
---------------------------------------------------------
--3-----------3--------------2---------------------------
--------2--------2-----------------------3---------------
-----4-----4--------4-2-0----------4--------4--4-2--0----
--5-----------------------4-----4-----4---------------2--
-----------------------------2---------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------3h5p3--------------2--------------------------

-3/4----4-------------------4/6--6--------4--------4--4-2-0----
-4/5----------5-------------5/7--7-----4-----4--------------2--
------------------------------------2--------------------------

repeat that twice of course, but...
before you come into the verse, DON'T play this:
----------             ---------
----------             ---------
----------             --3------
-4-2-0----  play this  ----4----
-------2--             ------4--
----------             ---------

verse part #1:
-----------------4--5-----------------5--
--9--7-------9---4--5------9--7--9----5--
--9--8-------9---4--6------9--8--9----6-- 
--9--9--9h11-----6--7------9--9--11---7-- 
--7--9--9h11-----6--7------7--9--11---7--
-----------------------------------------

------------4--5-----------------5----7--
--9--7--9---4--5------9--7--9----5----9--
--9--8--9---4--6------9--8--9----6----8--
--9--9--11--6--7------9--9--11---7----9--
--7--9--11--6--7------7--9--11---7----7--
-----------------------------------------

verse part #2:
     *					    
------------------------------4--5-5h7p5----
--9--9--7-7---------------9---4--5-------5--
--9--9--8---8h9p8---------9---4--6---------- 
--9--9--9---------9--9h11-----6--7---------- 
--7-----9------------9h11-----6--7----------
--------------------------------------------
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/r/red_hot_chili_peppers/under_the_bridge_tab_ver_15.html ]
     *					    
---------------------------5--5---
--9--9--7-7----------9-----5----5-
--9--9--8---8h9p8----9-----6------  
--9--9--9---------9--11----7------ 
--7-----9------------11----7------
----------------------------------

     *					    
------------------------------4--5-5h7p5----
--9--9--7-7---------------9---4--5-------5--
--9--9--8---8h9p8---------9---4--6---------- 
--9--9--9---------9--9h11-----6--7---------- 
--7-----9------------9h11-----6--7----------
--------------------------------------------

     *	   *				    
-------------------5-5----7--
--9--9--7--7--/9---5---5--9--
--9--9--8--8--/9---6------8--  
--9--9--9--9--/11--7------9-- 
--7-----9-----/11--7------7--
-----------------------------

chorus:
-9-----------7--9---x-x--
-10-0-0--0---7--10--x-x--
-11-9-9--9---8--11--x-x--
-11-9-9--9---9--11--x-x--
-9--7-7--7----------x-x--
-------------------------

then back into the verse progression
one variation John plays in this part is:
		----------	     ---------------
		-------9--           -------9----9--
		-------9--           -------9----9--
instead of this --9h11---- play this --9h11---11----
		--9h11----           --9h11---11----
		----------           ---------------

then into the verse again.
then chorus

then the bridge:
     
--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0----
--5--5--5--5--3--3--1--1----
--6--6--5--5--4--4--2--2----
--7--7--5--5--5--5--3--3----
----------------------------
----------------------------


play that a few times then:    
-----------------------  
-----------------------  
-2-2-2-2--1-1--4-4-----   
-3-3-3-3--2-2--5-5-----
-3-3-3-3--2-2--5-5-----
-1-1-1-1--0-0--3-3-----

although, when playing live, John plays this
and it sounds alot better:
------------------
------------------
-2-2-2-2--9-9-12--
-3-3-3-3--9-9-12--
-3-3-3-3--7-7-10--
-1-1-1-1--0-0-----

then back to the bridge but with some variations towards
the end

--0--0--0--0----3p0----0--0--0--0-------------
--5--5--5--5-5------5--3--3--1--1--1---3p1----
--6--6--5--5--5-----5--4--4--2--2----------2--
--7--7--5--5-----------5--5--3--3----3--------
----------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------

repeat, as you do, slow down then end on

--0--
--2--
--2--
--2--
--0--

done!!!

if i haven't screwed up, thats the way i play it and it sounds good.
thats a basic go of it for one guitar at standard tuning.
