    Man I've been trying to tab that slap riff in the beginning for the last half hour and can't do it for the life of me. between all the muted notes and staccatto notes, it's really tough.

    Can anyone give me a hand on it?

    Here's a link.

    If anyone can tab it I'd be real grateful.

    Or if anyone knows of a link to a tab of it, that would be awesome too. I tried ultimate-guitar.com and no luck. I'll try a few other sites though.

    Guess nobody's up to the task. I don't blame you.

    I got something like,


    G-----------------------
    D--------------7----------
    A--------7-------7----------
    E--0-x-x---5h7-------------------

    But I felt that it sounded so off that I didn't even bother with the rest. It's a pretty simple lick. If it was played slow I could get it no problem.

    I figured I could use this riff to jam with my drummer.

    Even if you could get the opening riff part that would eb awesome. I can probably get most of the fingerstyle stuff he does, and the slower slap riff he does towards the end. That opening riff is wicked fast and hard to tab for me, though.

    I've never written any tab before so I don't know if this is gonna fly or not. I'm on a Chili Pepper learning spree this week so I figured I'd give it a go. I'll record it slowly and post for you to work with the tab. I think this is pretty accurate for the first measure or 2, depending on how you're counting.

    ------------------------------------
    ------------------------------------
    -----x-x------------x--4h5------------
    -0-x--x-0-----5h7-x-----------------


    [edit after listening to my recording and the vid again] just listened back to the original in the vid. i think i'm slightly off - that 2nd 0 may actually be an A (5). something like that, anyhow. :)

    If you listen to the recording there is clearly an octave in the beginning.

    I listened to the first riff and here's what I got. Try playing it.

    G--------------------------
    D -----------------7-------
    A--------7 ----------5h7---
    E--0-x-x---0h5-x-----------

    Now I just gotta get the second part of the riff where he does some retardedly fast mutes. After I can do that I can show it off to everyone. :)

    I think he alternates btwn the octave and the D. 4h5 and 5h7.

    I've fried my brain enough on this though. :) It's easier to figure this stuff out if when you can slow it down.

    Hahaha, if anyone can help me out with the second part right after this:

    G--------------------------
    D -----------------7-------
    A--------7 ----------5h7---
    E--0-x-x---0h5-x-----------


    That would be awesome. Definitely tough to tab.

    I recall slappopslap saying they'd help me out with this on the weekend.

    Here's what I got so far, slappopslap. Feel free to expand upon it or change it if you think it's wrong.

    I got the very first verse (when he first starts playing)

    G---------------------------------------------------
    D -----------------7------- --x----------7---7---5h7---
    A--------7 ----------5h7-------5-5h7--5---5---5-----5-5h7
    E--0-x-x---0h5-x----------x-x--------------------------

    I feel like the second half of that is a bit off but he palys so fast that it's hard to tell exactly what he's doing. At the same time that's a benefit because nobody would be able to tell if you were playing it wrong at that speed.
