As we creep closer to the first anniversary of Prince's death, I will be celebrating his musical genius and how his music influenced me.
One of the things I admired about Prince was how he could pick up any instrument and make beautiful music with it. As someone who is highly challenged when it comes to playing any instrument, is utterly mind-boggling to me how one person can play 27 different instruments.
The man can knew his way around a drum kit, and always had a funky bass going, but I was in love with his guitar playing. Prince's guitar licks were quite unique, sometimes haunting, highly titillating, yet always amazing to hear.
The first time I heard a Prince song, I was likely much too young to be listening to Prince. In fact, I didn't even realize I was listening to a man because his falsetto was so on point. The song was, "I Wanna Be Your Lover," off the Prince album. I have been a fan ever since.
