Red Hot Chili Peppers
By The Way (Full Version) (Guitar tab)

Song: By The Way
Artist: Red Hot Chili Peppers
Album: By The Way
TABBED by Gas


I saw some live videos and I'm sure this is the way John plays the song.
In the first bar it should't change 8 to 7 cause is a bass riff, but I wrote like that cause it sounds good also if you haven't a bass.
