I Feel For You chords and progressions

Prince‘s I Feel For You is a better choice for a band due to its complicated, but still more conventional chords.

The Chaka Khan version is a bit too personal and therefore perhaps more suited to a DJ since this was the bigger hit.

We could say that I Feel For You is in the key of F#, although F# is Mixolydian. Being chord V, we get great tension throughout.

The intro chord riff with its awesome extensions is as follows:

| F# F#69 | F# F#add9 | Bmaj7 A#m7 | G#m7 G#m9/C# |
| F# F#69 | F# F#add9 | Bmaj7 A#m7 | G#m9/C# | G#m9/C# |

The two lines are basically the same thing twice, just straight to the slash chord the second time and hold it for an extra bar.

The verse moves V – I – IV – V, a nice twist on one of the most common progressions around, the I – IV – V!

||: F# | Bmaj7 | Emaj7 | F# :||

The bridge is similar to the intro, just less fancy extensions so we don’t get in the way of the vocal:

| F# F#6 | F# F#6 | Bmaj7 A#m7 | G#m7 G#m9/C# |
| F# F#6 | F# F#6 | Bmaj7 A#m7 | G#m9/C# |

The chorus uses the same chords, just sticking to the V – IV, the extension outlines the riff.

||: F# F#6 | F# | Esus4 E Eadd9 | Esus4 E Eadd9 :||

Instrumental 2 switches the extensions around. Play along with the video above using chords and lyrics and you’ll soon see how Prince put this one together.
