    I'm a die-hard Chili Peppers fan. I have been for as long as I can remember. On the new version of the album "Mothers Milk", they have a 12 minute long song of nothing but jamming (no lyrics or anything...just jamming) titled "The Song That Made Us What We Are Today". I managed to tab the first part and the "chorus" I guess you could call it that goes like this:

    ---------------------------------------------
    ---------------------------------------------
    --------------------1------------------------
    -1-3-3-1-3-3-3-1-3---3----------------------

    Obviously that part is very easy. However, I can't quite tab the other parts where Flea breaks off into solos and such. If anyone has the time and patience to tab this whole song for me, it would be greatly appreciated. :bassist:

    Also, if someone could tab "Pretty Little Ditty", that'd be great. :)
     
  3. I managed to find these tabs: I didn't tab it myself. The tabber remained anonymous so crediting his work would be impossible. :p
