                          John Frusciante - A chord diagramA augmentedA Corner

This tab is accurate to the album version.
John uses variations in both chords and song-structure.
However, I included an easier version at the bottom of this page.

I am aware that the notation and formatting doesn't conform to the conventional template.
However, I believe that the conventional 🏷Legend is unnecessary for this tab.
Also, the term Pre-Chorus seems to be misleading in this case, so I used "Intro 2" instead.
My goal was to create as accurate a tab as possible for this song (exempting the "Easy Version").
The other tabs neglect more subtle and complex chords that are present in the recording.
The "Easy Version" is meant to provide a more accurate tab for beginners than what already exists.
