I Could Have Lied
I'm a pretty lousy guitarist but the earlier two versions made me cry, so 
here's my try:


The second riff is just the main riff but
with this change compared to the riff above:
             B|232   (that is: you hammer on and pull off
                      Just change the  0  part in the main riff)
                                      2 2

I think they use open chords here: B D A (B)

Like pre-chorus with a change: B D A G

The solo part I leave to you...

Mail me, critizize me and stuff...

                      i could have lied
                     red hot chili peppers

i put the original posting below but this is what i think the riffs sound like
h=hammer on 
p=pull off    
Riff #1


riff #2


i though the notes where G D C C but i might be wrong, i`ll have to try the
ones below but i though i was dead on with the riffs.

i just started learning scales and it sounds like if its played in this
scale paterne which i think translates to g scales?

      1   2   3   4   5
so i just fool around in this scale patern (following the pattern down) and
you can play with the solo. it sounds about right? any comments, this is my
first posting!

Ok, here are the riffs that are repeated all over the song. You'll have to
listen to the record for
the timing of tabs and chords.
