GLOBAL GUITAR TABS

http://www.globaltabs.50megs.com

Artist: Red Hot Chili Peppers
Title : This Is The Place
Album : By The Way

No doubt about it, the Red Hot Chili Peppers ROCK! I went to their concert at the Corel Centre in Ottawa, Canada, on May 12, 2003, with one of my best friends.  It was amazing! Too bad there were pot-heads in front of us, and the band playing before them, Queens Of The Stone Age, were nearly three times louder!

To play this song, you have to be in Drop D Tuning (lowest to highest: DADGBE).

I don't know how to produce that same sound John Frusciante did, but I tend to use a basic Flanger throughout most of it.  During the bridge, I'll quickly switch to a vibe and then to an acoustic for the afterbridge.

There shouldn't be any errors, but please bear with me if there are ... I did this late at night and this song is hard to tab.
