    I was always impressed by that song (Kiss). To take basically a I-IV-V blues progression and turn it into that.

    My Alt-Country band did a version of this, as a tribute, when Prince died. We enjoyed it- and him- so much, we still play it. :cool:

    Oh yeah…..nice guitar, Wendy. :D

    From Wikipedia......

    Development and release[edit]
    "Kiss" started as an acoustic demo, with melody, lyrics, and basic song structure written by Prince. Prince gave his demo to the funk band Mazarati for their debut album, and they worked on it with producer David Z. In the end, Prince decided to finish the song, retaining David Z's unique, funky rhythm and background vocal arrangement, along with Mazarati's background vocals; he removed the bass line, and added signature guitar and falsetto vocal elements. The final, minimalist song was a hard sell to Warner Bros., but upon Prince's insistence the song was released and added to Parade.[6]

    Pretty incredible player, singer, and entertainer in general... I was always impressed by how he pulled this one off totally solo...

    Yeah, he was all that. And a set of steak knives. I don’t think most of his fans realize how talented a guitarist he was.
