Can we talk about prince playing summertime

I must have seen the short clip on youtube hundreds of times I could watch hours of it it just shows what an a master musician he was at one point being in the wrong key and just improvising his way out of it. Its such a relaxing video to watch I like the guitar solo aswell although Im not sure who plays it. There must be more footage from this rehersal although ive never seen it.

I'm just like everybody else I need love.....and water.

If you are referring to the clip of Prince playing it from the Nude tour rehearsal, it's probably Miko playing the solo even though we know that Levi is a force on guitar as well. In fact, now that I think about it, before the solo, you can hear Prince say, "Go head on Miko," so, yes, it's Miko playing the solo. And, yes, it's a wonderful moment.

I love it and I find it relaxing to watch as well.The footage is from a documentary shot during the Nude tour.The director released the Summertime clip along with a few others but no more was said about it.Hopefully the entire documentary will come out eventually.

No, but I believe the director said it was in Japan if I remember correctly.He talked like he was planning to release the documentary eventually.He also released a clip of Prince playing guitar at the sound check as well as some footage of him backstage.

Believed to be possibly (although not listed on the PrinceVault page) Hanshin Koshien Kyujo, Nishinomiya, Japan on 2 September, 1990.

This surfaced just a day or two after he died, and it was one of them most natural pieces of footage of him at ease playing and not being “Prince”-the-performer that I had ever seen. Yet right there in the background you see the huge lettering of his name and the stadium waiting to be filled. It said everything all at once.

It made it all the more sad! sad
