"Under the Bridge" by Red Hot Chili Peppers features chords that don't seem to fit together in any one key. In this lesson, I show you how guitarist John Frusciante makes use of pedal tones and modal interchange (also called modal mixture or borrowed chords) to compose this 90s classic. I break down the intro, verse, chorus, and bridge and explain the music theory behind the chord progressions.
