The ninth album by the California funk-rockers continues the band's progression into a deeper, soulful and more melodic sound as already displayed the multi-platinum albums Californication and By The Way. After bridging the gap between the US college-radio alternative scene and the rock mainstream with a barrage of hi-energy funk-inspired punk in the late 1980s, Red Hot Chili Peppers have refined their sound and embraced the memorable simplicity of The Beatles and Buddy Holly. The resulting album boasts some of the most beautiful melodies of their career, complemented by John Frusciante's stunning and inventive guitar arrangements.
Every song from the double-album has been carefully and accurately transcribed in this matching folio, complete with melody line and full lyrics, including Dani California, Snow (Hey Oh) and Slow Cheetah.
This special Deluxe Edition also features two CDs from the original studio masters, which isolate the guitar tracks from the original recording so you can listen as you learn from the music in the book. This special edition is the brainchild of John Frusciante, and has been personally approved by the guitarist.
