    More people need to witness this

    Yessir that’s why I only posted that nothing else and did it ASAP, essential Prince video

  • One of the thing's you hear often from people who aren't aware of his ability 'Prince was overrated'

    And you know a lot of musicians felt this way who didn't know his music who worked with him. If you feel that way and you are new to prince,that's a common reaction. A lot of musician's would laugh together probably 'oh my god, he has a huge ass feather boa and lace gloves, look at this guy. I'm going to show him something at this audition'

    It wasn't until they went in the studio and when they were instructed song by song in rehearsal. People assumed he was just some easy going womanizing rock star but most had no clue of his abilities.

    What kind of abilities can make a musician question their own level of ability in an instant?

    Prince DID NOT use sequencers,metronomes or click tracks. What does that mean? Let me explain it in really simple terms. He played the track all the way through. Each instrument was all the way through.... 'Ok engineer? you ready?

    To give you an example 'I would die 4 u' seems simple enough with that bassline but that's TWO FINGERS played all the way through until the end of the track.

    Now here's where Prince makes people want to pop tums before working with him. You have to keep that pace through the entire length of I would die 4 u song because there is no sequencer. Prince would tap on bass synth two fingers and just attack the notes playing that descending line. he would get it probably in 1 or two tries.

    Anyone that questioned the 'suited up funky Charlie Chaplin of MPLS' before, you were quickly eating your words.

    That's what made Dr Fink (his keyboardist for 78 to Grafitti Bridge) freak out when he found out Prince didn't use sequencers. They didn't want it to be true.

    When any musician finds out, they can't believe it. Because it's the musical equivalent of walking on water.

    If you think it is easy, plug in a keyboard and just start bouncing on the keys with 2 fingers doing that bassline. The problem you are going to have is, it's almost like saying a tongue twister but musically. you end up twisting the notes and losing the time fairly fast.

    You can't do it, it's a yoda mind trick. your reflexes have to be more than professional. That's also why a lot of musician's couldn't work with him because they weren't ready for THAT.

    And that's just 1 of 'god knows how many moment's' Prince could mindfuck someone with his ability.

    Maybe the secret was prince was using a sequencer - his mind was the sequencer. And that's how he was able to piece s*** together. But yea that's why people say often that Prince was operating on a level like beethoven who worked with him.

    And if you are new to prince, I can show you in a gif of his ability in 3 seconds why even the professional dancer's were dumbfounded by him:

    And that's in a nutshell why you can't overrate Prince....EVER.

    Saying prince is overrated is more than just an opinion. Its basically an admission that one is f***ing stupid in every aspect of life. And they need ti think critically about their actions from that point on Its just a braindead notion.

    But holy f*** bro didnt use a sequencer? that man. Every fact about this guys is incredible. Dude was like a created player with cheat codes on

    No sequencer's. Listen to Batdance..... that's crazy he did that just chopping s*** together on the fly.

    I will tell you another thing that I heard from Jesse Johnson that most people have no idea.

    Prince would start out on drum machines for 'For You' this is how he was able to cut the drums quickly because he had a guide reference. I don't think he would do that later on. But he did that maybe because he was just starting out in this million dollar recording studio? He was still learning the ropes.

    Jesse has like 20 hours of tape's of Prince For you on Drum Machine demos that was given to him by Prince. Because Prince wanted to show Jesse how sick he was with it.

    No one even EVER thought that Prince was using drum machines back then. But that's what he did apparently for a lot of his early stuff. No one ever speculated that and no one has heard any of that stuff except for Jesse.

    That means Prince was using drum machines since album 1. WTF what kind of drum machine was he using? That's what I want to know.

    Each link covers that particular record from Morris's perspective at that time. Each segment is 15 to 20 minutes in audio with a interviewer who is also a professional musician. :h5:

  • 'Thank you for flying Morris International' Damn, it was a Time song. (which is also prince... but still The Time. That's interestng how he keeps The Time material separate from Prince)

    Morris's foot was a bit heavy on the kickdrum for this version,imo.

    I wonder how much Time material prince recorded that is not known?

    I'm guessing the myth of Prince erasing the guide vocals, I don't think he would do it. It's a lot of work and I believe his ego wouldn't let him stand for it. Which means Time albums with Prince vocals.

    Purple Music is so amazing. Man had so much incredible music you do end up wondering how some of this didn't get released as a b side at least. But then again he had so many great b sides I'm not sure I would replace any of them. His quality level was just that good
