dude, it's one of the greatest chili peppers tabs I've seen. nice job. But I have to say it'd be easier for the E in the first verse instead of
g 13
d 14
a 14
e 12
b 9
g 9
d 9
a 7
e 7

this is an excellent tab, if you play it this way it sounds very good. However, if you want to play it the way the chili peppers really did it you have to use hendrix-style thumb-over chords for most of it.

if you have trouble playing it at first, try the capo thing then after you have the song learned take the capo off and try it without
+5   November 29 2002, 12:00 am by Brandon1469 |
on the e----3-5-3--- part, just b4 it doesnt sound right, the song has more notes than that...idk i could just be me but i think theres sumthin wrong there
-1   December 1 2002, 12:00 am by cold_static544 |
to make it easier for me....i tried using substitution like the a string on the fifth fret can be substituted (same note/sound) as an open d string......making it much easier having knowledge of relative tuning helps....
-1   December 11 2002, 12:00 am by viper1e |
oh really i cant believe u knew that
-18   January 12 2003, 12:00 am by FenderFreak2728 |
dude ur tabs are wrong, u dont know how to write them i got it from the acctual book so dont write tabs unless they are the exact notes retard

Its much easier with the capo
+1   September 25 2003, 12:00 am by sandalsdude |
dude at leasst he ***in tried and this is prob. much better a job than you could do these tabs are great as with the capo who care just learn it the harder way and even the tab books arent always right either
+1   December 13 2003, 12:00 am by Owensboy |
FenderFreak is a ****in idiot
Not every note has to be exact, especially on a song like this, i just keep to the chords and improvise. I appreciate the guiys who wrote the tabs, keep up the good work. what a nob fenderfreak is.

very good, however, the intro is wrong. at the very beginning, it goes
E-------------------4- then the rest
+18   February 28 2004, 12:00 am by Owensboy |
I laugh at all these ***suckers saying crap like "you play the intro with a capo on the 2nd fret." Go watch Frusciante play it live you idiots.
This is a brilliant tab, and besides, the song is all about improvisation around the basic barre chords.
This is one of the best songs ever written.
+4   April 10 2004, 12:00 am by icefire87 |
i'm not real good at guitar (yet) but im just wondering, with that first note being on two separate strings like that, does that mean the entire song is fingerpicked, or is it just pick one note, and use a spare finger for the other one? thank you so much for helping!
+2   April 12 2004, 12:00 am by webbhead |
sick tab man

actually the intro is like this:-

D 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4
A 5 5
E 2 2

not quite together this s***y forum hasent quite put the f****n Tab Together like i typed in. N e how people uknow what i mean its on other sites just up To where the G5 Chord area is
+3   November 30 2004, 12:00 am by sufcintheprem |
Jeez, why would anyone post stuff on here when you get criticism like that coming on?

Don't you reckon if the Chillis looked at it they might reckon it's a good effort but not quite how they would have done it??

As has been said, you almost certainly won't see it played the same way twice.
+1   January 25 2005, 12:00 am by Picarddelta |
Who's this UG stranger guy? he goes to all the tabs and says they suck! This is a damn good tab!

yA I just played it, well done and you complainers shut the *** up!

so how the fuk are you meant to play the outro if u have a capo on????
+1   February 13 2005, 12:00 am by Saverain |
Do the red hot chili peppers play it w/ a capo. I think not. So why. Don't be a *** just play it the right way. It's not that hard.
-1   February 13 2005, 12:00 am by Saverain |
By the way that is not the exact way they play but nice job taking the time to tab it. I'm kind of obsesed with playing artists songs exactly as they play it. They use broken cords for the verse with thumb on root note. I think it's easier to play it that way. I also tabbed it. I think it's on this site.
-1   March 4 2005, 12:00 am by Alien_from_a_cd |
Good enough for me. :D The 3rd way is the best, I don't pretty much give a damn about the capos. Good job dude.
+7   March 6 2005, 12:00 am by chilipepper24 |
there's atleast 2 mistakes in the intro that i can count, right at the beginning it's


then later on it's


and i'm pretty sure there's no capo. it wouldn't work at all and makes it unnecessarily complicated. and plus if you listen to the song, it's obviously standard tuning. the rest of the song however looks pretty good. haven't looked at the 2nd and 3rd versions yet, though.
September 3 2005, 12:00 am by Mr.Jack_SG |
nice tab man must have taken you a while
-1   December 13 2005, 01:00 am by dime the legend |
meed alot of improvement but sounds ok u could pull it off to someone that doesnt know the song correctly
+1   December 20 2005, 07:51 pm by wahappenISSEXY<3 |
more like...


and the 3-5-3 part is 3h5p3

and a capo is deff not needed so overall the tab is unnecessarily complicated as said before...

-11   January 17 2006, 06:02 am by Gitarristen92 |
Well every single tab of under the bridges is wrong, or at least its not how John Fusicante plays it.... the intro is 1 fret lower... okay this sounds good but some dudes might have relizaed that John Plays diffrent. so intro =1 fret lower
-1   January 17 2006, 06:04 am by Gitarristen92 |

Absolutely freaking incredible. One of my favorite songs to listen to, now one of my favorites to play. Ignore everyone else who talks about the capo on the second fret... I think it's easier to play without it.
-1   April 8 2006, 04:06 am by spaulding91 |
i know theres alot of hate for the capo but can someone help me with chords in that versoin(as in i cant figure them out). thanks for help
April 8 2006, 04:55 pm by Gibson_Rocker13 |
it would be really helpful if you would label the verse chorus and the bridge for learning purposes.
-1   April 11 2006, 09:35 am by JoshBall |
The way John plays it is Flops intro- it's in the tab book exactly the same as it :) u dnt need capo aswell

May 22 2006, 08:47 pm by ledzeppelin13 |
Will_GnR_87.... i've watched John frusciante play this song, many many times, and it is always played on 5th fret, and if anybody would play it right, it would be him. Also, if i remember right, in the video for under the bridge it is also played on the 5th fret.

Ya know I just saw the video of John Frusciante playing this song and giving helpful tips. I have to say it is very accurate. I sat down with the video on demand and tried playing with him, and the tab held up well.

-1   July 24 2006, 11:13 pm by mikepj1027 |
in the intro if anyone listens closely you can hear that on the first 3h5po3 John plays that there are more notes there, i can't figure it out but if anyone else can it would be nice if you posted what he plays. Also in the intro if you listen you can also here that John plays two notes at once more than this guy has in the tab, requiring that you bar most of the intro to act as a capo if you want to play how it sounds on BSSM.
July 29 2006, 01:13 pm by hippy_dude26 |
i've been looking all over for a decent under the bridge tab and yours is more than different, it's like it's written by the chilli's
August 1 2006, 04:50 am by melchorhaz |
i don't know bout the others but this tab rules \m/ ?_? \m/
-1   August 1 2006, 11:52 pm by xDoMyGuitarNoWx |
few extra added notes.. not needed btw.
August 4 2006, 01:45 am by Ronan514 |
this song is much much easier if you use
e 7
b 9
g 9
d 9
a 7
e 7
throughout the whole song instead of the emaj form you have
g 13
d 14
a 14
e 12
also you can play it on acoustic cause you dont need to go past the 12th fret

Dude, this is good stuff. I'm genuinely impressed.
-1   September 13 2006, 09:47 am by OneEyedMan |
Must I remind people that tabs aren't ment to be exact? It's someones interpretation of the song, to help you learn the song and progress as a guitarist. All songs I play I add things, take things away so they sound truly different yet the same. It's called style, have some appreciation for the guy who took some time to write down his own version of the song, I don't many many of you ungrateful brats doing so.

Btw, the time is a little out for the first verse thing after the intro, the held E chord is a bit misleading in the tab compared to the song.

September 29 2006, 11:49 pm by StairwaytoHeavn |
These people (for the most part anyways) are freaking retards... the song isnt played with a capo, and sure it has a few mistakes but shit, could you do better? i know i couldnt, this song would take a long time to tab, and if you hear a wrong frikin note then dont play it that way, fix it yourselves lazy asses.. but yea, good job and such guy, i commend you ;D
-1   October 3 2006, 09:43 pm by rnrigfts |

these people postin bad crap suck, but there are a few errors in the intro indefinitely, other than that, decent tabbin.

Hey everyone.
time to end this argument (the capo) John frusciante said himself that this song was not recorded with a capo,and he bared the 2nd fret. And also have you ever seen him play it live with a capo, anyone, anyone at all?
-1   November 2 2006, 02:12 pm by E-man |
some notes played on wrong strings, verses dont sound right, 2 stars but good try
-1   November 4 2006, 04:21 pm by Decave |
great job dude, this is almost completely perfect it sounds right but this isn't really 100% how frusciante plays it. to be honest, it's played pretty fast so it doesn't really matter. great job man!
-1   November 8 2006, 06:12 am by Frashizzle |
Thats far too complicated. Why you dont play the chords on the higher strings, that sounds better and is easier because you dont have to grab that low...

You dont need a capo Im pretty much a beginner and even I can play this song without one

Anyone who needs a capo to play it sux ass and why is evry1 goin OMG how does john play it so fast its not THAT fast compared to some of his funkier songs. Gud tab but the capo is completely pointless unless u cant hold down a simple C shaped chord, in which case u suck. U missed the EM7 chord thats held right after the intro but oh well any idiot can tell its there
-1   February 4 2007, 01:04 am by agiuliano |
Not a bad interpretation. But thats all it is... a misguided translation of a great song. The sheet music states that no capo is needed, thus if one is used it completly changes the key of the song...however it does'nt sound all that bad with a capo.
-1   February 10 2007, 02:17 pm by x5459 |
The unnamed chords in the tab with the capo are Fmaj7, E7, and D.

right after the intro it just ain't right
-1   March 17 2007, 12:28 am by Neon Grunge |
Omg who really cares if you want or don't want to use a capo, your technique not anyone elses business. Love this tab, definitely better than some of the other versions out there. Keep tabbing
-1   April 30 2007, 07:09 pm by CrossBack7 |
Stop bitching everyone. This is by far the best version I've seen. It's not like they play it exactly the same every time live anyway. . .

even though this tab sounds okay, the tab is way off. parts of the intro, all of the verse, etc...

he DID copy it out of a book or guitar pro did it for him, do you really think a man can create a tab like that on his own? even the band itself were more than one guy... wake up

the intro has mistakes and the chords are right other than the bass notes that are left out and it sounds way better with the bass notes. the song revolves around this chord and formation.

trust me it sounds better.

Good tab, to the people who have the tab book, tab books aren't always correct, they are just a persons interpretation,
the band doesn't sit there and write it themselves.

+5   February 14 2008, 06:18 am by leakeg |
Some people seem to be confused about the use of a capo, and I will attempt to spell it out for the less abled among us: John DID use a capo for this song, but ONLY in the STUDIO VERSION. This is because when you record in a studio, you don't always have to play the whole song at once - you can just play the bits you want at your leisure. So John decided, for whatever reasons, perhaps he liked the sound or it was easier to play, to do the intro with a capo. After he recorded that he took off the capo, hell he might have even switched guitars, and recorded the other parts of the song.
Now some of you may be screaming "OMG BUT I SEEN HIM PLAY LIVE HE DOESNT USE A CAPO AND HOW COULD YOU PLAY THE OUTRO IFF YOU HAD ON A CAPO !!!11!!11," well what you now need to realise is that John is a clever fellow and he realised he could not play the song live with a capo because he would have to take it off after the intro, which would be a pain in the ass, so he plays it WITHOUT A CAPO, but he is infact playing the EXACT SAME THING!
"SO WHAT DO I DO???" I hear you asking. Well my simpleton friend, what you need to do is to play it without a capo, because as we have learnt above that's what you need to do to be able to play the whole song.
February 22 2008, 12:21 am by cozzy99coz |
great tab... i reely need to learn how to HYBRID PICK, cause 4 u who didnt no, thts how he plays it. he uses his pick AND fis fingers at the same time, which is how he plays like tht.
Stoned Sheep, that was a gay-ass comment
and AMEN to leakeg. thank you for pounding tht into the viewers skulls
-1   February 25 2008, 07:10 pm by P0undc4k3 |
Why does this tab have 4 stars and not 5? I hate how some kids ruin amazing tablature with a 1 star just because of some little issue that no one else cares about. This tab is sublime, end of story.
+1   March 3 2008, 06:59 pm by closmurda |
The very first riff should go like this...the second half of this tab is fine just the first half, the part I have in brackets.

---> [this part]
+1   March 3 2008, 07:01 pm by closmurda |
Ok that bracket thing kinda didn't go where I wanted it to. Just compare it, you see, its very minor. 4-2 5-4
March 13 2008, 12:34 pm by kevith |
This is a pretty good tab. Not totally accurate but close enough to give you a good basis to start from. Some of the chords don't sound quite right in the chorus and I prefer to play the main E chord as x79997 (rather than at the 12th fret).

I'm pretty sure Leakeg is correct about the intro being played with a capo in the 2nd fret which is an easier/simpler way and is how I learned it about 12 years ago when the tab was in Guitar World.

-1   September 22 2008, 10:20 am by wicked_hobbit |
yeah.the intro is so freaking simple but yet memorable and beautiful.damn i envy frusciante for coming up with a masterpiece of such simplicity

btw, the capo is NOT necessary! stop claiming that it only helps you handling ONE single note in the intro.

and who cares how frusciante plays as long as it sounds spot-on?

this is actually completely wrong.......... and very confusing.... go on youtube and put in john frusciante guitar lesson under the bridge, and watch his hands and see if you can get it, there is a lesson on there that shows the correct way to play this. and john frusciante is the guitarist for the red hot chili peppers.....!!! if you didnt know,

it would be e|---------

not sure why there's 3 different versions of it, but the 3rd one is pretty damn good.

no capo, end of.

and ne1 who's a beginner, trust me it does click after a few months. the things that seem impossible, which you dont understand, will make sense later on.

just keep playing it dnt spend so much time debating it with people you'll never meet.

this tab seems quite right,
but honestly guys theres a much better sounding and efficient way of leaning an playing tabs if u buy guitar pro 5,
ive been using it fr a year and i took me half as long to learn this song then my friends who dont have the program. its also graet for writing your own music...drums,bass,guitar etc. nyway good work on this tab but its really long.

September 4 2009, 08:52 pm by Picklelerner |
the tabs seem good to me, i dont think any one of them is perfect, u just gotta take a little bit from each of the tabs. i can assure this because ive seen him play it live 2 feet away from me and plus theres tons of videos on youtube of him doing it slowly. im pretty sure he does alot of improvisation between chords tho, and u cant tab that kind of talent.

-1   October 16 2009, 06:09 am by ameteurtabz |
Check out Youtube John Frusciante - Guitar Lessons. He plays Under the Bridge, then in slow mo. Excellent Video. If a tab has a minor error in it, it is wrong, cannot be overlooked. I wish there was a way to filter out tabs with obvious errors. Oh, and for those who thougt so; this is NOT capoed on fret 2, only if you don't want to play it the way it was written.

thats how frusciante plays it just listen for the right rythm
July 4 2010, 07:17 am by Willsgotwood |
I think if u add 3 notes after the a in the verse it sounds sexy! like the verse goes...

I drive on the streets cause
C#m G#m A
Shes my compa--nion
I walk through the fields cause
C#m A
She knows who i am.

the final A of this section of the verse, after letting the A ring for aboout half a second, pick the bottom 3 strings from the E first then the B then the G. while holding the A do this and you will know what i mean!

*basically pick the 6th, then 5th, then 4th string while holding an A barre chord, simplez!*

Chords for verse

the little picking part im on about goes...:

Stratomaster, actually this is how he plays that part. Bar strings B, G, and D with ring finger and use pinky for high E. (It's an awkward formation, I know.) It's how he does it in a YouTube video.

February 22 2011, 09:45 am by southak |
tab convention is that the chords are relative to the capo yeah, so the "D" in the intro (capo version) should be written as a "C" etc.
March 6 2011, 03:33 pm by Frusciante19 |
the first tab is a big piece of something i don't want to say, but the second tab is excellent. best tab of Under The Bridge I've seen. nice job there

To all the little girls who are banging on about "give this guys a break and its 100,000% correct" etc. Shut your ignorant mouths. The Tab is wrong. FACT! Anyone with 1/2 an ear would hear and see the huge mistake in the first 10 seconds of playing and thats just the start. Well done to 'tadnecty' who has posted the intro correction and all who have posted corrections. Good on anyone giving a tab a go but people gotta stop posting ignorant comments when they obviously have no idea what they're talking about. This time could be better spent on your axe!
