Red Hot Chili Peppers — Hard To Concentrate bass tabs


This is a fantastic song, one of my favorites. A must play for
flea fans
since he is holding down one of the grooviest / low key basslines
on the new
album. Impressive to all those who rock or not. There are really
only two parts to worry about. The main verse is gonna have you
streching a fair bit , and the chorus
will require quick chord progression. But with some practice,
and patience, you'll
be playing it to death in no time.

The main verse will have you hitting the 12 with your thumb while
plucking the g string for the right note, that pattern will continue
for the whole song really.

G|———16——14——12——14—12|——16—14—12—14—12|————11—————11——11—|————11—————11——11—|
D|————————————————————|————————————————|——————————————————|——————————————————|
A|————————————————————|————————————————|——————————————————|——————————————————|
E|12——12——12——12——12——|12——12—12—12—12—|——10———10—7———7———|——10———10—7———7———|




The chorus here is what other tabs were really fumbling with,
there are no muted notes here. And he follows along with the
Anthonys vocals more than anything else,
some notes are rather faint so you will have to play this part a few
times just to get the timeing perfect. But once you get it it's
a breeze.


G|————12————————————————12——12————|————11————————————————14——12————|
D|————————————————————————————————|————————————————————————————————|
A|————————————————10——————10——————|————————————————————————————————|
E|—88—————8———————————————————————|——10————10——————12——————12——————|

G|————12————————————————12——12————|————11————————————————11——11————|
D|————————————————————————————————|————————————————————————————————|
A|————————————————10——————10——————|————————————————————————————————|
E|—88—————8———————————————————————|——10————10——————10——————10——————|

So you will play the entirety of that twice, followed at the end
by this
leading back into the verse / interlude. Not a hard fit to imagine.

G|————————11————————————11——11————|
D|————————————————————————————————|
A|————————————————————————————————|
E|10——10——————10——10——————10——————|



The bridge of this song is a beautiful moment. Most of these notes
will be sustained for a long period of time. Just listen to the
song as per usual to find the feel of the groove.

End With A resounding :

anyways, a fantastic song to put a beautiful girl to sleep or
raise an eyebrow of a fan in a music store.

best of luck.
