Lesson notes

Nothing Compares 2 U is a ballad originally written by Prince and made famous by Irish singer Sinéad O’Connor in 1990.

It was again covered in 2016 by American singer-songwriter Chris Cornell, best known as the lead vocalist for the rock bands Soundgarden and Audioslave.

He posted a link of him performing the song, as a tribute, on the day after Prince’s death.

This lesson takes a look at this version, which Cornell performs on the guitar. It covers the chords, the strumming and the progression.
