This is my Tab for "I Could Die for You" from the Red Hot Chili Peppers 
Album By The Way.
Since I bought the album, I haven't stopped listening to it. It is easily 
their most accomplished work to date.
John Frusciante still proving why he is one of the best guitarists out there 
at the moment. This is only my
interpretation of the song, so as always; I am open to your opinions of it. 
I you think it rocks, e-mail me.
If you think it can be improved, e-mail me. However, as this is only my 
second submission to OLGA, my explanations
may be slightly difficult and if so, I apologise. Anyway, enough from me. 
Enjoy the song. P.S.
thanks to OLGA for being the best tab site around. SlatZ...

The final part of this chord progression is tricky so i have decided to 
remove it from above
and tab it seperately underneath.


   Part One      Part Two       Part Three

E-----------|--------------|-----------------|
B---------3-|---5h---5pu---|----------0------|
G----4------|--------------|------4----------|        (0.46)
D-----------|--------------|-----------------|
A-----------|--------------|-----------------|
E-----------|--------------|-----------------|

   1st, strum part one, second hammer on five and pull off as in part two, 
third strum part three.
   This must done fast to achieve this Hendrix style sound correctly.
