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--||---3---------1---1-------0---0--||---4---------2---2-------2---1--||---5---------1---1-------0---0--||---5---------3---3-------2---2--||---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. From: (Olivia D. Isaac) Subject: Re: REQ: TAB for BIG EMPTY by Stone Temple Pilots 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 somewhere... 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.

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. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Sender: "KLeonard" To: Date: Mon, 01 Aug 94 13:27:25 EDT Subject: TAB: "Big Empty" by Stone Temple Pilots (improvement) 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 keith From: (Olivia D. Isaac) 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.
