My Purple Tribute to Prince [Updated – Intro & Solo Only]

Those who know me, know I’ve been a huge fan of Prince since I was 9 years old and while I have learned to play portions of his songs or dumbed down versions of entire songs. Those who know me, also know I embrace technology. So for the purists, I apologize.

That said, I did play all the music in this song, but that doesn’t mean I’m a good piano player or can shred the guitar like it sounds. What I can do is record one hand of the piano at a time (give me a break, I’ve only recently been teaching myself) and play the fast parts of a solo slow and turbo charge them to his Purpleness’s speed. Again, my apologies to the purists. Maybe one day I won’t need to use performance enhancing technological tricks. Until then, perhaps some kudos for transparency or reposting just the intro and solo? No, ok, move on, nothing to see (or hear…um….here).
PS There’s a very good chance that this will be yanked down by yours truly as it definitely needs polishing and you can thank me in advance for only posting the intro and guitar solo, (which I definitely put a lot into) and not including the entire track w/ vocals (yet). Big thanks to my 11 year old daughter for helping me with the string arrangement. If you want talent, she’s the one with it, even if she refused to do the vocals – either solo or duet (pre-teens…oh well).
