hey guys, i just want to know cool acoustic songs by john frusciante...esp his first song that he made when he was 17 (if i'm not mistaken). i forgot the title

i've tried 'a song to sing when i'm lonely' on acoustic. so i think u guys have better idea about other good acoustic songs by jf. n perhaps some decent song by rhcp (acoustic version). n plz inform me about the difficulty level

Breaking the Girl isn't too bad, I Could Have Lied, Under The Bridge
Past Recedes is pretty easy, cept maybe the solo.
Other JF songs: A Name, Goals, A Firm Kick, most of his strumming songs aren't hard.
If you're going to do something wrong, do it
right.
#4
any great jf songs?preferably with 5 stars tabs?
coz i'll frustrate myself if i play low rated tabs
btw, thanks for the recomended songs..i'll give a try
#5
The Past Recedes is good. It's just some chords.

but my fav of his is Ascension.

Murderers is really easy and fun to play around with. Untitled 3. and Going Inside. all really easy for the most part and sound really nice on acoustic. most of the tabs for these might not be 5 stars but they are right on with little to no variation. listen to the song and u should be good
#9
venice queen is cool to play...

also try looking at some of his solo stuff

EDIT: solo as in songs he's done aside from rhcp
mmmmmm jedi

The whole Curtains album except Leap Your Bar which is played with a piano.
Shadows Collide With People has a few acoustic tracks like Every Person. He also made an acoustic version of the whole album, I think you can download it from his website.

He uses too much barre chords

The song your thinking of that he made at 17 is "A Fall Thru Ground" off of "Smile From the Streets you Hold" (rare album, PM me for alink) but it's not acoustic. Maybe you're thinking of one of his untitled tracks?

And to you're other question, these 2 are incredibly fun to play, and make you look like a true Frusciante fan:

This tab is definitely incomplete, but I hope
it gives you an idea of how to do it.

The intro: this is the acoustic guitar

At the same time as the above part, John plays these notes with his other
fingers. 
Its hard to explain how to do it, but it is possible to do.

The Electric Guitar Solo: I think I'm missing quite a few notes, due to the

The End: After the rest of the verses ("I slide your kind...") and the last
chorus 
John plays a D chord. Then he sings "tell your problems to zero.."
Then he improvises on the Ebm and E chord while it fades out.
