PURPLE RAIN - Prince
Well the way I play it, I base it on these four chords
(and to me it sounds pretty much spot on, although maybe the squiggle himself
uses a different tuning to make a few of the shapes easier)
EADGBE EADGBE EADGBE EADGBE
X07600 244200 024100 XX0975
Aadd2 F#m7addB Eadd9 Dadd2
OK I know you're not gonna like that last D chord, but if you practise a little
you can get it.
Nearly the whole song revolves around these chords, although obviously you can
play around with some slightly different voicings to keep it interesting
(Play a normal A,F#m7 once in a while)
The only different bit goes :
E E7sus4 E A
Only want to see you crying in that purple rain
Hope that helps
