Under the Bridge – Red Hot Chili Peppers

This is one of my favorite guitar songs ever.  The intro is one of the most recognizable guitar intros ever.  The verse lick that John Frusciante plays is pretty simple, it’s structure is built on triad chords with Hendrix-esque accents here and there.  But it just sounds so damn good.  It’s one of my favorite songs to play, the arpeggio at the beginning is beautiful and I love the way the chord structure flows throughout.  The echo Frusciante uses at the end of the song is great as well, and I have a preset on my Spider amp that replicates that same sound.
