Kiss From a Rose Guitar Tab (Part 2)
In order to play this tune as accurately as possible, we’ll quickly review some important info from part 1:
- Place your capo on the 3rd fret to play in the same key as the recording.
- Even when arpeggiating each chord, you continue to hold the entire chord and let it ring out
- Experiment with more complex strumming patterns if you are comfortable
- Part 1 has pictures of each chord shape you need to know in order to play this tune.
The chorus continues with chord changes that are similar to the verse. Two measures of E major, followed by Cmaj7 to D. As the chords ends, the frequency of the chords appear quicker. In measure 43, you will see that the movement from Cmaj7 to D happens twice in a row, before resolving to E for a bar and a half. What follows is a variant of the introduction. It’s basically the same thing as the beginning, but there is no repeat this time.

Verse 2 is nearly identical to the 1st, as shown in part 1. There are a few key differences. The first is that in measure 66, there is a big moment in the vocals, and nearly the entire orchestra swells up and stops suddenly for 5 beats. After, we return to the previous pattern, which leads us back to the chorus again.
Another difference is the movement from E major to E minor. This time, it’s more abrupt than in the original verse.

Notes on Kiss From a Rose, and some helpful hints:
- If you’re struggling to change chords fast enough, simplify the pattern down and gradually build up speed and confidence to hit it every time.
- Pay careful attention to how many E majors there are in the verses, they are not the same every time.
- So far we have tabbed out our intro, verse, chorus, slight return to intro, and a second verse with some variations
- 3rd fret capo! I know I already said it, but I’m saying it again
- It really helps to practice singing and playing along at the same time (even if you aren’t a singer). Whistle, hum, make yourself become more engaged! By doing so, you will improve faster!
