Then there is the part where Prince starts singing again. And after that there is a 
ad-lib part. Then it goes:

E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
e|-18b--------18b-----17h18p17p15-----------------------20b------------------|

Be sure to bend these last few bends A LOT, especially the last one.


| b  bend
| r  release
| .  palm mute
| /  slide up
| \  slide down
| h  hammer-on
| p  pull-off
| ~  vibrato
| +  harmonic
| x  Mute note
===============================================================================

Hope ya enjoy! Took me forever in a day to tab. But, I figured since there were no
accurate, or for that matter, NO Purple Rain solo tabs, thought I'd do it. I'm 98%
sure it's all correct.
