RE: Big Empty by Stone Temple Pilots (Purple Album)

Let me run through the complete chord set
plus a tab for the small interlude.

E? 022130
C7 032310

Repeat these two chords for the intro, verses and slide guitar

Chorus is all standard chords
G       A                  C             
Time to take her home  her dizzy head is conscience laden
G       A                C
Time to wait to long to wait to long to wait to long
Then play this a few:
    (G5)       F7        (F?)(F7)
|---3---------1---1-------0---0--|  ..these conversations kill......

That's pretty much it, with the exception of that 
small interlude. Try it and you'll know where it
goes. The whole thing is based on a barred A chord
on the second fret. No challenge here! :)


This may not be 100% correct. With the amount of distortion
on the chorus I have a hard time picking out whether or
not there is any variance on the A & C chords.

I will tab the slide solos at another time. They are very simple,
and if you don't have a slide you can use pretty much anything 
smooth and rounded such as a bottle neck or even a Bic Lighter.
I just don't have the time to tab right now.

I've got only the chorus.  My bro has the verse part but won't teach me it.
(Go fig!)  Anyway, the chorus has a moving G-chord and has an E-chord in there

NOTE: I am not a very good guitar player so all I'll write is the TAB.
      You'll have to figure out the timing and such.

-------3------------5------------8--------------------------------- `

        Time to     take her...  dizzy head is conscience laden...

Repeat the above progression  according to the song...


I'm not sure if that's right.  I have no guitar in my midst right now, but I'm 
pretty sure that that';s how it goes for the chorus. I hope this helps.

the verse is  E7  C7  being struck a couple of times each and then being
muted (listen to the cd for timing).

E7  x2213x
C7  x3231x

i'm not sure about the bridge but i know it's three chords, it begins with G
major and ends in E7.  the middle chord is some form of F (maybe F5).

G  320033

Big Empty
Stone Temple Pilots 

Driving faster in my car
Falling farther from just what we are
Smoke a cigarette and lie some more
Cause conversations kill
Falling faster in my car

Time to take her home
Her dizzy head is conscience laden
Time to take a ride that leaves today
No conversation

Time to take her home 
Her dizzy head is conscience laden
Time to wait too  long, to wait too long
To wait too long

Too much walking shoes worn thin
Too much trippin and my soul's worn thin
Time to catch a ride that leaves today
Her name is what it means
Too much walking shoes worn thin

Conversations kill...

And as for the tab/chords...

all I know is that there's a moving G-chord in the chorus part...I don't know
how it ends though...if anyone does have the tab/chord stuff, post it.
