In this tutorial we are going to learn how to play "Big Empty" as performed by Stone Temple Pilots.

This song features tons of cool guitar parts, tones and techniques. These include some cool uses of 7th chords with a clean tone, some slide guitar melodies, a wall of heavy rhythm guitar, along with several additional colors using some effects. I'm going to break down how to play all these different parts and techniques, and at the end we will put it all together with a backing track. After we have heard the song as a full play-a-long, I will then do another pass of the song just using Guitar #1 for a single guitar performance.

"Big Empty" is in the Key of G, at 62 BPM, and in 4/4 time.
