- for some reason the bass on the last two bars of this chorus is very quite and it
  is very hard to tell what Flea is playing - so I've just made the assumption that he
  plays something similar.

Note - There may be even more variations of the above, but for conveinance's sake I've
       cut 1 or 2 of them out. (most of them are just slightly different rythmic changes.)
