GLOBAL GUITAR TABS

The band returned to the studio in early 2001 and released By the Way over a year later, on July 9, 2002.

 
BTW Era. Circa 2002.The album, at the time, was their most noteworthy chart debut (with over 700,000 copies sold in first week), emerging at #2 and producing hit singles such as: "By the Way", "The Zephyr Song" , "Can't Stop", "Dosed", and "Universally Speaking" which was only released in Europe as a single and video. It is the most subdued and submissive album they had generated to date, focusing primarily on melodic ballads as opposed to their classic style of rap-driven funk. The album was followed by an eighteen month-long world tour from the group.

The Chili Peppers recorded two new songs, "Fortune Faded" and "Save the Population", for their Greatest Hits album released later that year, in November of 2003. To the surprise of countless fans, only two songs from By the Way were included in the compilation: "Universally Speaking" and "By the Way". Much criticism was drawn from the absence of "Can't Stop", which is, on a general basis, measured as one of the band's most popular and identifiable songs. The entire debacle may have been caused by the minor musical disagreement which began circulating between John and Flea.

At the time of By the Way, John's musical fixation was rather contrary to that of Flea's and, thus, influenced the recording process significantly. Nearly all of By the Way's harmonious melodies are credited to John's interest in a deep, textured and multifaceted guitar work, which was not completely opposing that of his band mate, though, nevertheless, generated more than a few unpleasant moments, as any bass line Flea would construct would continually be unsatisfactory for John and his scrupulous musical approach.

 
Red Hot Chili Peppers live at Slane Castle on August 26, 2003.The European leg of the By the Way tour would give birth to the bands second full length concert film, Live at Slane Castle; recorded during a show at Slane Castle in Ireland on August 23, 2003. The band also went on to release their first full-length live album, from the 2004 European Tour, Live in Hyde Park; recorded during their performances in Hyde Park, London, due to immensely high attendance rate. In the three evenings the band performed in Hyde Park, they accumulated an estimated 17 million dollars, making it the highest grossing concert at a single venue in history (moving the Beatles to number 2).[8] Two previously unheard songs were featured on the Album: "Rolling Sly Stone" and "Leverage of Space".
