Subject: Bass Tab:Big Empty by Stone Temple Pilots


Big Empty- Stone Temple Pilots

This song has *alot* of improvising on the bass, but this tab has the
basic structure:


Intro:
G---------------------------------------------------------------------|
D--------------5------------------------------------------------------|RIFF
A--------3--5-----7--------7-----5--3--------3--3------3h5--3---------|  A
E---0-------------------0-----0-----------0---------5----------3---0--|


G------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D--------------5----------------------------------------------7----5-----|RIFF
A--------3--5-----7--------7-----5--3--------3--3-------5--7-----7-------|B
E---0-------------------0-----0-----------0--------5/7----------------0--|


G-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
D--------------5--------------------------------------------------------|RIFF
A--------3--5-----7--------7-----5--3--------3--3--------0--2--0--------|C
E--0--------------------0-----0-----------0--------0--3-----------3--0--|

The pattern goes: Riff A,B,A,C,A,A; but keep in mind that he ad-libs some
of it.


Chorus:

G-----------------------------------------5-------5--5--4-----|
D---------------------7--7--5----------5-------5-----------5--|
A--------3h5-------7-----------7----3-------------------------|
E--3--3-------5-----------------------------------------------|


G------------------------------------------------------------|
D-----------5-----------7---7--5-----------------------------|
A-----3--5--------5--7------------7--3--2--2--3--5--3--2-----|
E--3-----------5------------------------------------------3--|


G-----------------------------------------5----/7--5--4-----|
D---------------------7--7--5----------5-----------------5--|
A--------3h5-------7-----------5----3-----------------------|
E--3--3-------5---------------------------------------------|


G------------------------------------------------------------|
D-----------5-----------7---7--5-----------------------------|
A-----3--5--------5--7------------7--3--2--2--3--5--3--2-----|
E--3-----------5------------------------------------------3--|


G----------------------------------  Then ad-lib   example->(G-------------)
D----------------------------------  on open & 2nd        (D--2--0---------)
A----------------------------------  frets on A & D         (A--------2----)
E--0--0--0--0...-3--3--1--1--0--0--  strings.               (E-------------)
                                                           (Repeat several)
    								(times)

Bridge:

G---------------------------------------------|
D----------4--5--4----------------------------|
A--3/5--7-----------7--5--2--3--2-----0h2-----|
E----------------------------------3-------3--|


G----------------------------  Play           --------------|
D----------------------------  this           --------5-----|
A--7--7-----5----7--7-----5--  twice          ---7-------5--|
E--------7-------------7-----                 ------7-------|

That's basically it, but remember that there is alot of improvisation on
that song, so bear with it. I tried to describe one of the fills, but it
seemed really vague, so I didn't even bother with the others.  Oh yeah,
don't e-mail me for any tabs. If I did transcribe the song you're looking
for, it would already be in this archive, SO LEAVE ME THE HELL ALONE!!!

thanx-

There is a lot of bass in this song, but the author took the lazy road and didn't bother, saying it was "improvising". That being said, notes are missing, and there are wrong notes throughout. Author separates riffs without clarifying which part of the song the riff belongs to, which creates a lot of guess work for readers. It's a decent start, but there's too much wrong to make it worth taking the time to learn. **
