From: Paul D 
Subject: STP's "Naked Sunday"...

Alright, "Naked Sunday" by STP contains (get this!) only 3 DIFFERENT CHORDS!
Aflat, C, and C7.  Each chord is played for four beats each and the
progression just repeats.  The following is the progression after the drum
fade-in:

(with WAH)
     Aflat           C        Aflat           C7
E-|-----------------------------------------------|
B-|--4--x-4--x-4-----8~~~~----4--x-4--x-4-----8~~~|
G-|--5--x-5--x-5-----9~~~~----5--x-5--x-5-----9~~~|
D-|--6--x-6--x-6-----10~~~----6--x-6--x-6-----8~~~|
A-|--6--x-6--x-6-----10~~~----6--x-6--x-6-----10~~|
E-|--4--x-4--x-4-----8~~~~----4--x-4--x-4-----8~~~|

The rest you can just ad-lib or listen to the song 'till you get the rhythm.
But honestly, there's only the 4 chords.  Change your rhythm to 16th-notes
for the chorus ("Been waitin' for awhile to meet you...", etc.).

The solo is just noise basically, if you're much of a lead player you'd
probably ad-lib that too (it'll probably sound better than the orig.)
Here's the lyrics:

You're the fuel to the fire,
You're the weapons of war,
You're the irony of justice,
And the father of law.

CHORUS:
I've been waitin' for awhile to meet you
For the chance to shake your hand
To give you thanks for all the suffering you command.
And when all is over
And we return to dust
Who will be my judge and which one do I trust?

You're the champion of sorrow,
You're the love and the pain,
You're the fighter of evil,
Yet you're one and the same.

(chorus)

SPOKEN:
An eye for an eye
And a tooth for a tooth,
Turn the other cheek aside.
We are all God's children, the giver of life,
But only we will survive!

Good luck...

Actually, the solo isn't just noise. It starts with some bends, then has a fast single note passage somewhere in the
second or third measure of it. That can be tabbed and I think I will tab it. But other than the lack of a solo, good
job. I give you four stars, good sir.

The solo being 'noise' fits with the rest of the song, for one.

I think the "A flat" chord is actually played as
e-----
B--8--
G--8--
D--6--
A--6--
E-----

And the C is played at the 3rd fret
e-----
B--5--
G--5--
D--5--
A--3--
E-----
