Prince’s classic song: Computer Blue

The song is part of the Purple Rain movie and its soundtrack album, it’s a classic song of his mid 80s era, so expect keyboards/synths and pop rock drums, with an opening rythmic guitar that is typical of him. The guitar/bassline groove is somehow similar to songs like Cream or others that I dont remember, but it’s a trademark. The interesting thing is that there is a fast bluesy line -played together with Wendy-that serves as a bridge between the first part of the song (which is funky/Pop rock oriented) and the second, where the mood changes a lot (also thanks to the keyboards) : it becomes a cool mix of pop, 80s movies’ soundtracks and neo classical melancholy melodies. The notes are simple to play and this is great because everybody can play this little solo, even if they are at the beginning of the guitar studies. The melody changes key at the end, for an even more epic finale, just before reprising the funky riff. Check this magic song here
