Hello,
I just started playing last week... But I already learned the beginning of Otherside of RHCP. But there's one thing I don't get... In the number you had this..
|-3-|
|-3-|
|-4-|
|-5-|
|-5-|
|-3-|
I can't get my fingers on it so how do you do it?

Thats a G in barred form. What you do is use your index finger to hold down all the strings at the third fret, then use the other fingers to hold the 3rd,4th, and 5th strings. If yoy can play an F in barred form just move it up 2 frets and you have what you need. Takes a little hand strength to pull it off without muting a few strings. Just practice with it. a good song i used to learn how to play barre chords right is got me wrong by AIC(alice in chains).
F F# G G# A
1----2---3-----4-----5-----------
1----2---3-----4-----5-----------
2----3---4-----5-----6-----------
3----4---5-----6-----7-----------
3----4---5-----6-----7-----------
1----2---3-----4-----5-----------

I think thats the barre formation used in otherside.

yep, just bar the 3rd fret with your index finger. and you'll find the other 3 fingers magically fit where you need them
