Prince - Kiss

Here's how to play Kiss by Prince, which can be played on acoustic or electric guitar.

The chords are based on a 12 bar blues in the key of A, a chord progression used in thousands of songs, which you can learn more about here

We also look at something called chord substitutions, which is a posh term for changing more basic chords for more interesting ones to make the whole thing sound cooler :)

The intro chord is an E9 chord, which on the original recording uses a wha pedal going from heel to toe

Here's just a quality acoustic min-set by the Purple One himself, sadly he doesn't do Kiss, but it really gives you the vibe of how his songs can be done on acoustic, it's amazing!
