Californication [LEAD SOLO] - Red Hot Chili Peppers Lessons on Classic Guitar Solos

This is a classic Frusciante solo. The guy can really burn around the guitar but he chooses to play a wonderful singable melodic solo rather than show off, and I love guitar players that play for the song, not for their ego!

I would STRONGLY recommend that you have a go at working out this song using your ears BEFORE using my lesson. It's a nice intro to transcribing, it's not baby simple, but there's nothing much really tricky in it, so have a go on your own and use my lesson to check how you did and fill in any blanks!
