Mr. Purple Rain Doesn’t Need To Be A King To Do Greatness.


Prince, as we know him, was a master showman, incredible songwriter, singer, and of course, performer, and because of these traits, we sometimes forget that he’s also one of the greatest guitarists in the history of music.
When his death broke the news, he received such adoration from rock communities, and rock legends as well, despite being a pop and R&B artist.

The incredible thing about Prince is that he’s a self-taught guitarist, and claimed that he can’t read music, nor understand music theory, but he knew his way around a guitar, ripping all his way on that fretboard, and doing all kind of things from great funk, blues, rock to metal.
