                Red Hot Chili Peppers - Ethiopia

This song has some pretty fun time signatures and polyrhythms going on. It's hard enough 
getting rhythms right
in tablature anyway without the marvellous head-f*ck of the tasty rhythms going on here. 
This is the closest
approximation, it should look clear and obvious when listening to the track, id assume 
you're going to listen
to the track to get the rhythm anyway. So best of luck with that and I hope this tabs 
clear enough!

Just in case it helps, the verse, middle section and outro are all in 7/8, so you count 
7 quavers per bar.
Just to note though quite often Josh is playing a polyrhythm over Flea and Chad who are 
in 7/8 so counting
that probably won't help you when playing guitar for anything other than the main verse 
riff, unless of course
your adept at counting a rhythm and playing a polyrhythm over it.
The chorus is technically in 4/4 for the most part but it's easier to count 8/8 because 
they add on an extra
quaver on the last go round making it 3 bars of 8/8 and 1 bar of 9/8. So you'd count 8 
quavers per bar for 3
bars then you'd count 9 quavers for the last.
