                This Velvet Glove - Red Hot Chili Peppers

I found Bo Weevil\'s tab on OLGA and tried to fix the (very few)
mistakes and add the missing parts. Here\'s the result.
Enjoy!

Lyrics & Chords
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
[an acoustic guitar strums chords all over the song;
use a capo on the 5th fret, so that you\'ll play
Am, G, F, Em, D instead of Dm, C, Bb, Am, G; see tabs
for lead part details]

|: Dm C | Bb :| 4 times, with fill 1

Close to my skin I\'m falling in someone who\'s been                     \\
Sittin\' by the phone I\'m left alone in another zone                    | Dm C Bb 
John says to live above hell, my will is well                          | 8 times
No one is waiting for me to fail, my will could sail, yeah.            /

|: Dm C | Bb :| 4 times, with fill 1 (and some slight variations)

It\'s such a waste to be wasted in the first place                      \\
I want to taste the taste of being face to face with common grace      | Dm C Bb
To meditate on the warmest dream                                       | 4 times
And when I walk alone I listen to our secret theme.                    /

Your solar eyes are like nothing I have ever seen                      \\ Dm Am
Somebody close that can see right through                              | 3 times then
I\'d take a fall and you know that I\'d do anything, I will for you.     / G Am

|: Dm C | Bb :| 2 times, with fill 2

Sailin\' for the sun \'cause there is no one knows where I\'m from        \\
I care for you, I really do, I really do                               | Dm C Bb
Come closer now so you can lie right by my side                        | 8 times
Sit alone in the sun I wrote a letter to you getting over myself       /

| Am | Am | Am | Am C | with fill 4

Your solar eyes are like nothing I have ever seen                      \\ Dm Am
Somebody close that can see right through                              | 3 times then
I\'d take a fall and you know that I\'d do anything, I will for you.     / G Am

Your solar eyes are like nothing I have ever seen                      \\ Dm Am
Somebody close that was made for you                                   | 3 times then
I\'d take a fall and you know that I\'d do anything, I will for you.     / G Am

|: Dm C | Bb :| 2 times, with fill 3

Close to my skin someone who\'s been I\'m a falling in                   \\
Disasters are just another star falling in my yard                     | Dm C Bb
John says to live above hell, my will is well                          | 8 times
Long to be with someone to tell \"I love your smell\"                    /

and one chord (strummed with left hand muting):
The note is an A, B string 10th fret.
The chord is a C, 12th fret: x-x-x-12-13-12.

putting your pinky finger on ad off the string.
