This brilliant book goes into great detail. I would recommend it to anyone. By playing their songs you should not only enjoy it, it will improve and teach you new techniques and styles and how they compose their songs. A masterpiece!

If you are an intermediate guitar player or better and you like the Red Hot Chili Peppers, buy this book. This book is spot on and even has arrangements for playing the keyboard and orchestra bits on guitar.
Wouldn't recommend to beginners as some of the chords are very difficult.

A mind-blowing master piece. The Chilli's music has matured and again produced a truely outstanding piece of work. The book is easy to follow and you can play your way right though. Not for the beginner as there are some interesting chords, tumbs, pull-offs and hammer-on's.

Whether you're a massive Chili's fan or not, you should definitely get this music book. There is not one mistake, and due to most of the songs only having one guitar you won't have problems such as needing a partner, although playing along to a bass is well worth doing. Enjoy it and learn from it!
First of all, I have to say that this album didn't meet the standards of the previous album 'Californication'. However, this is still a great piece of music from the legendary band. The transcriptions are spot on so I can recommend this book to any RHCP fan, as you will enjoy playing along to the cd owing to the accuracy of the book. It's well worth the money!

Although not as 'funky' as the previous 3 albums with John Frusciante propelling the Chilis with his fantastic guitar playing, By The Way certainly does have some very melodic sequences to it, and i would recommend this book to all Chili fans, and also for guitarists to improve rhythm patches and general chord work, which is the basis of this album.

Excellent book! As a young guitarist I found this hard but helped improve my technique no end. Would recommend this book to anyone playing guitar for over a year and a half. Worth the money.

This book is Great. John Frusiante is a wicked guitarist and is very skilful. It's a good book- there is some hard stuff and some easy stuff. All Chili Peppers' fans should buy this!
