                GIVE IT AWAY
-Red Hot Chili Peppers-

Lyrics & music: Anthony Kiedis, Flea, John Frusciante, Chad Smith



This song is one of the Red Hot Chili Peppers' best, and it is also one of their hardest
songs ever to tab. I've seen a lot of different tabs on the net, and none of them are
totally correct. Even this tab is probably wrong on some places. But anyway, here is my
try on the song:


Tab key:

()  = ghost
^   = hold note
*b* = bend the note a little to make a short noise
h   = hammer on
+   = quickly rub your plectrum up and down on the strings while holding the notes
/   = slide up. left note is starting point, right note is ending point
\   = slide down. left note is starting point, right note is ending point
x   = muted string

The Guitar Solos:
=================

As you already may know, the solos in this song are just different guitar loops played
backwards. I have made up two riffs for you which sound much like the CD if you play them.
Use a waah-waah pedal or other effects to get that "blurry" sound.

'X' marks the start of a new measure. There are four beats from one 'X' to another.
'*' is a beat.

First solo:

    X      *      *      *      X      *      *      *

     ||                          ||
 Hold down 12 and keep          Keep bending until the end
 hammering on 14 until          of the solo
 next X


NOTE: During both solos, another guitar keeps pumping on this chord:

e:--------
B:--------
G:--------
D:---9----
A:---7----
E:---0----

Play third part with disortion. Repeat this riff until the song ends. The song ends 
on an A5 chord (x022xx).


Enjoy!
