Nothing Compares 2 #Prince

Shocked by the sudden death of Prince the other day.

I’m a big fan,  he was fantastic at The Glasgow Hydro in 2014 and I had been hoping to see his Guitar and Piano gig at the Royal Concert Hall before it was cancelled citing issues with ticket touts.

Anyway,  heres my tribute,  a combination of Purple Rain and Nothing Compares 2 U,  which he also wrote although made famous by Sinead O’Conner.

An 8 bar intro,  two loops of G, Em7, Dmsus4, Cadd9 then a verse and chorus of Purple Rain followed by Nothing Compares 2 U.

The chord progressions on both these tunes are quite similar ..  F, C/E, Dm7, Gm/C .. in that they are both descending progressions,  starting with a major, passing through minor and ending in a flattened chord.

The man may have passed but his music lives on.

It’s been seven hours and 15 days ..
