Rest in peace, my hero!

Hiyaaa!

Hi Girlies! How are you?? I’m still saddened by the death of my musical super-hero, Prince. Prince was so awesome! IS…so awesome (his music is still here). He was an amazing artist, guitarist, songwriter, composer, and singer. He was one of the few people who I fantasized about sitting down and working on music with. Who do I have to look up to now?? :-(  I guess we could all go at anytime. :-\ …I’ve never been this effected by the death of someone who I didn’t actually know in real life.


SONGWRITING TIP

What is Purple Rain anyway?
We know there’s a song called “Purple Rain”, but what IS purple rain? I mean, what is it?! What does it mean?! Does anybody know for sure? Or do we all have our own idea about what it is? That’s the great thing about songwriting, if you have a good melody and good chord structure underneath, and a super-catchy hook– you can make up any kind of crazy mumbo jumbo, and people will love it! Another example is Cake by the Ocean. We know it means something… but what exactly? (I heard an interview with DNCE on the radio, so I know what it means ;-)

 GUITAR TIME! 

Hey you, here are the chords and lyrics to “Purple Rain”. Prince’s epic title song from the soundtrack to the movie “Purple Rain”
