In the first bit.
I need help on:

How do you play the 3 on B and the 5 on A at the same time, Since theres no 0's that means you dont play the strings in between. Do you just like hit each one really fast, so it plays as one? <- If that makes a n y sense.


e:-------------------------------------------------------------------|
B:3-----------3--------------2--------------------------------------2|
G:------2--------2-----------------------3---------------------------|
D:---4-----4--------4-2------------4--------4--4-2------------4------|
A:5---------------------5-4-----4-----4-------------5-2--4/5-----5---|
E:---------------------------2---------------------------------------|

You could, as an alternative, just skip out on the 3. I usually do that on accident, and it still sounds fine.

Okay...that's a good idea. I just tried the hybrid picking, and that's hard to remember doing when your playing a song.
It's like patting your head; and rubbing your tummy kind of thing. Lol

He uses hybrid picking to play it.
These are arpeggios btw
The first is a funky D chord with added notes on the D and A strings.
The second chord is an F# Barre.

Hope this helps

Arpeggios are chords that are broken up into single notes instead of strumed.

I suggest you go on youtube and search " Under the bridge lesson"

The first result will be John Frusciante playing the songs in a close up. That is how i learned how to play this song.

cheers

the intro is finger picked, not hybrid picked. on the BSSM album, the high d and c# were a second guitar. When he plays live, he uses finger picking and comes in with the pick for the rest. the lesson probably taught you all that though


Saying the Red Hot Chili Peppers have no talent is like saying Guy Fawkes didn't have an epic mustache.
