Fantastic song by Red Hot Chili Peppers and great solo by John Frusciante! Here are the guitar chords of Wet Sand from the album Stadium Arcadium. I struggled to find the right chord after the progression EM G D of the Bridge which I thought at first to be a C chord. Thanks to JustinGuitar I realized it is an EM with a weird fingering (see EM(v3)). I thank him also for this lovely Emaj7 grip. I play an arpeggio in the Conclusion section and I use this grip for the D#7/A# chord.
