Lesson notes

This song shows off the astounding talent Prince had for writing guitar parts to accompany himself.

The best guitarists can all write what “needs to be played” during that verse or that special sounding chorus, and that is exactly what he did in this song.

By studying these parts and how they weave in and out with the vocal melody you’ll gain access into the mind of Prince and how he thought about the guitar as an accompaniment instrument.

This lesson is like a masterclass in writing great guitar riffs and having them fit seamlessly with the vocal melody.
