[Bars 65-72] The mid­dle 8 is the only sec­tion where Fr­us­ciante’s gui­tar part is at odds with Flea’s bassline, so this cross rhythm can po­ten­tially throw up a few prob­lems. In­stead of straight phrases of eight or 16 as in the verse, each bar’s phrase here is di­vided into 6/6/4 group­ings, so it needs a lit­tle more at­ten­tion to avoid play­ing the same rhythm as the bass. Again, con­cen­trate on light­ness of touch and avoid stodgy or lumpy play­ing.
