Hmmm, not sure what to make of this. Just downloaded it after cursing at 3121.com for an hour or so after entering my credit card details 3x only to reach an error screen (Livewire, it looks like you had the same issue). I didn't read anything here before downloading, so I was thrown off by it being a pop song, not heavy-guitar, but someone predicted earlier that it would sound more like Vavoom or Peach than Endorphinmachine or Fury, and they were right. This could have been an NPG Music Club download from year 1 (Vavoom probably is really the closest comparison from Prince's past).

After 3 listens, this is definitely catchy and I think I will find myself singing it to myself and playing it on my iPod a lot over the coming days, but it's nothing he hasn't done before, and doesn't add anything new to the Prince canon of work.

The bass reminds me so much of Do It All Night I thought it was going to launch into that at any moment...

Anyone else find it interesting that he's selling it as an unrestricted MP3 (192kb), not as a DRM-file like the Musicology download store sold stuff as?

On an unrelated note, I'm saddened that he's selling it for $1.99. He was selling songs to members for 77c not too long ago have they lost the membership list? Considering he won't sell on iTunes because they take a percentage of a 99c sale, I would think he could sell this for 99c, or thereabouts - why such a steep price? Because the unrestricted nature of the MP3 means people are going to share it?

Wow dislike outweighs the like on this thread. At least you guys are very honest which it is cool.

Still pondering.... Order "Guitar" or order "Guitar" not? hmmm


Start with a repetitive groove, guitar solo for 20 seconds, same groove, guitar solo for 20 seconds, it's over. Imagine banal lyrics for 3 minutes over the top. Do you want to pay 2.00 for that? If so, go for it.

There's nothing but bone here, nothing to sink your teeth into this one. Repeated listens would drive me crazy because musically, you get the idea after the first 15 seconds and lyrically, whew, I really am starting to wonder if the well hasn't run dry for the man.

Blew me away with yesterday's performance and I'm sure he will Sunday too, when he, you know, actually plays guitar and backs it up with a full sound via his band.
No hard feelings.

Prince fans are a trip...They are either on some loathsome "How come he can't do another Sign O the Time?" or they are on that 'We love him no matter what he does..." I swear just from reading the posts in the beginning you would have thought that Prince fucked somebody's mother and didn't have the courtesy to call the next day....

The song aint that bad and it aint among his best...But to hear both of these extreme camps tell it, I don't know..The shit is quite amusing...There's a medium people...There's a way for someone to say Prince made a good, not great song...It's quite possible, ya know...I swear, some of y'all are nuts...

Finally got the song...and I can definitely see him playing this on Sunday,
a nice pop number w/nice tag line...:"I love u baby, but not like I love my guitar"....This has a lot of potential to be even better live! He will definitely put more guitar in it when playing live....guaranteed!
Stand Up! Everybody, this is your life!

It's groovy, but I think there could be more done with the arrangement. Lyrics about gettin down at the club, jumping the the car, gettin the call, etc, etc. We've heard it all before. Lets hope this is one of the filler tracks on the new album!

you have to put a symbol after the password...very stupid, huh? It drove me crazy too...I thought I needed a number, not a symbol. Track isn't that great anyway.

Dig if U Will...

Imagine if U Will...

This song LIVE with a band versus the electonic sound going on the recorded version - totally a different song


I believe this "horney Toad old-skoll cool funk" soundin song is yet only a DEMO and the radio single will be released to radio Monday after the Superbowl performance that trumps the game itself

God Bless Prince
God Bless Funk
God Bless Guitar LIVE
The greatest live performer of our times was is and always will be Prince.

Remember there is only one destination and that place is U
All of it. Everything. Is U.

That's a pretty spot-on review. I guess if we want him to rock out we have to wait for a song called "Horns".

it's cool but it doesn't knock me out. the name threw me off a bit cause i was expecting, and shame on me expecting anything from Prince lol , a hard rock song. fooled me good. i will say and murph said the same thing earlier in the thread, that the production is great. it sounded fresh and i was feeling that.
I'm not a fan of "old Prince". I'm not a fan of "new Prince". I'm just a fan of Prince. Simple as that

to get the password accepted, put in a symbol with your password. For example. "charlie!". hope that helps.

I like it..... biggrin The lyrics have some sarcastic humor with the hint of a bittersweet read-between-the-lines msg to it, very Prince-like, and a catchy tune and danceable.

For the password, you have to use a non-alphanumeric character like an &, *, %, $, # ....it finally worked for me. Put that character either at the end or beginning of the password.

First, just like to say thanks, for those who helped out.
This new song, like a many P songs, are slow burners. Give it time. Let it be.
It's very similar, form wise, to his very early material. Feel 4 U, When U Were Mine, etc. And there is some nice "licks" towards the end. Ground breaking, no, rewarding after repeated listenings, yes.
Fantasy is reality in the world today. But I'll keep hangin in there, that is the only way.

Glad to see I'm not the only one that thinks "Guitar" would fit in with the Dirty Mind/Controversy era (musically, not lyrically) as I've seen several comparisons to "Do It All Night" (especially in the bassline and synth riffs). For the record, I happen to love the song as an update of Prince's early eighties sound without any hip-hop pretensions. Of course, I must be lying because only people who hate the song are "honest", right? wink

I liked it immediately. It's got a breezy 1980's b-side feel, which is kind of fun. And it sounds like vintage Prince in a throw away mood, which is kind of when I like him best. This track has not been over produced or done to death. It sounds fresh.


We all should have known better than to expect a ripsnorting guitar track, but having said that the guitar solos in it are pretty amazing.

Cool track. Worth the wait.

I really like it. It definately puts me in mind of his older music. I was expecting a little more rock and roll, but I'm pleased with it nonetheless.

I think if it were on The Truth, it would fit in. It has many Prince influences like Girls and Boys, Lolita, and fascination. shrug I like it.

What would be hilarious would be if this song ended up Fury style at the Super Bowl and he offered it as another DL on Monday. Imagine the furor as each fam clicked "purchase" for the version they really wanted.
