Red Hot Chili Peppers – Californication (Guitar Cover) (Play Along Tabs In Video)
Californication By RHCP – Guitar Cover

Tips And Comments:

– Playing Technique:

Played in a middle posiion between pickups. Middle strength applied. Neck pickup

– Gear Sound:

Added some treble, not much bass, compression. Clean sound with some gain

– About The Song:

Fmaj7 chord is played with the left hand thumb over the first fret, 6th string. That’s the only comfortable way to play it and that’s how Frusciante plays it. I chose not to play the verses like he does. It wasn’t very comfortable for me. Some of the strumming parts are not quite right with the recording, but i think the goal of the part is just playing the chord, the strumming patterns are not very important as long as you get the rhythm

    Your videos are great! All the tutorials (for any song) are either too slow or too fast. Yours are just perfect as you can just pause, rewind and slow the video so it matches your learning rythm. Keep it up!
