I'm talking about John Frusciante of course...how does he play like he does. I guess what I really mean is what kind of chords does he use to get his really cool funky sound that he also kinda makes into a lead part. Him and Henry Garza (Los Lonely Boys) are both really good at this it seems and yet I know nothing about how to do it. Please send me help.

theres no telling how John Frusciante sounds as great as he does, but i saw this video a while ago of him playing under the bridge and he plays some of his bar chords a different way and it sounds great! but i think he just has a lot of tricks up his sleeve, most of which we are gona have to figure out for ourselves...

He likes you play his chord upside down. Read the interview in Total Guitar or was it Guitar Player....? Try both. He tells a lot about his techniques and stuff like that.

funky chords sound brighter, try rather than say, playing Amaj like 577655, try just xxx655 or rather than an e shaped barre chord try a d shaped chord like either
x x 7 9 10 x
or x x x 9 10 9

but yeh, that kinda thing, try different shaped barre chords

Its Total Guitar, I read it a while ago..

What he does is use chord inversions, which is putting the 3rd or 5th of a chord in the bass instead of the root note and so indeed kind of creating an "upside-down" chord like muppet said.. Google chord inversions and you should find some website that explains it in more detail..
