Prince “Alphabet Street”

alphabet street  is interesting because it alternates a simple sequence of Major chords (G, C ,D)- very Rhythm and Blues- with another small sequence, changing G to Gm7 (and the mode change brings to a mood change) -very funky , very disco (70s), closing the sequence with a small blues lick. The guitar tone is clean,brilliant, twangy and funky. In the second part of the song he adds some Hendrix-like licks -more loose, more psichedelic rock, but in the background-except for the high notes around min. 1:43-fast lines probably after the 12th fret.
