The rhythm guitar, the very instrument seemed to be in love with Prince. Blistering solos in songs like See My Computer and Zannaleefor are tasty and appropriate examples, to prove the above said– as they perfectly showcased the kind of connect he relished with the strings. If we rank the top three guitarists of all time, his name will gloriously smile on the Everest.
