[Verse 2]

                  "Pretty Penny" by Stone Temple Pilots
                        

Allright, people were wondering about this song, and it is rather easy.

* Both Guitar 1 and 2 are accoustic.
* The ending chord on both guitars is an open E (as in the 1st Interlude for
  guitar 2 shown below)

Lyrics
------

(4 measure intro, w/ verse music)

Have you seen your mother girl?
Has she gone away?
Gone away and found the pearl
But the price she paid

[Chorus]

Gone
When you wake in the morning
Gone
When you find that there's no one sleeping
Gone
Pretty Penny was her name
She was loved and we all will miss her

How far will you go, I say
Just to bait a mouse?
Shorter lived and longer gone
Can you figure out?

[Chorus]

(4 measures of verse music)

(1st Interlude)

(4 measures of verse music)

Have you lost your sister girl?
SHe's all but blown away
blown away and lost the pearl
And the price she paid

Hmmmm... (4 measures of verse music during hmm)

(2nd Interlude)

(3 measures of verse music then open E ending chord)


---------------
[Verse]- Guitar 1
---------------

*note* the music below is one measure.

   E5            F#5 A5

   have        you   seen           your
   mo    -     ther  girl?

It is difficult to tell whether 3 notes are being played or if only two notes.

---------------
[Verse] Guitar 2
---------------

This is the main riff, the one you hear...

                 G5add9
  E5       A5       Gadd#11        G5

  have        you   seen           your

Every 4th time substitute the following for the above:

|-4-----4--2--X--0--0--0--0--0--0--0-|

There are          |3--3--3-/4-\3--0-|
variations to this |2--2--2-/3-\2--0-|
part... this is    |0--0--0--0--0--0-|
the most common.   |0--0--0--0--0--0-|

*note* there are no variations before the second verse...

Listen to the CD for other variations...

----------------
[Chorus]- Guitar 1
----------------

The chorus is also very easy.... pick the strings pretty hard for this part
and listen to the CD if you can't get the rhythm...

 (A)

----------------
[Chorus]- Guitar 2

This is played steadily and quickly behind the guitar 1 part.

0       1     2     3     1   (I included picking instructions for a general
1       /-----/--/--/-----/    idea of how it goes, you don't have to be
2       |     |  |  |                                   precise about it)
2       |     |  |  |downstroke pick all strings
