Purple Rain (acoustic)
By: Prince
Tabbed by: Kristie Steele
Tuning: Standard

Pretty simple and straight forward. Personally I use the first version of A for the 
straight chords and for the shots that are on A I use the second version. Makes it easier 
that way. Enjoy :)

Nice. Works pretty well. Has anyone tabbed out the signature riff for this version?
