"Purple Rain" - played by John Petrucci(Comments RSS)

I admire John Petrucci's playing massively. I confess that I did not expect to like this rendition of "Purple Rain" when I realised that there was no vocal and it was a purely for-guitar arrangement; as much as I love guitar, I thought this song needed the vocals.

How wrong I was. From the second phrase in, I realised that he was making his guitar speak the lyrics quite expressively enough, thank you very much.

This is "Purple Rain" as you have never heard it before, rendered unbearably beautifully by the masterful John Petrucci. Enough to get you tearing up, when you reflect on Prince's recent untimely demise.
