Guitarists - songs you would most like to see in a new Prince tablature book.

There is a lot more Prince guitar tab out there now than there used to be, but there's still some great stuff I would love to see professionally tabbed out. I'm hoping this new Universal deal will result in some more pro tablature of his work being published.

Question is, what songs would you most like to see professionally tabbed?

Here's my picks for a Prince guitar anthology (deliberately not going with obvious songs that are already widely available):

Controversy

Sexuality

Forever In My Life (live version 87)

Cindy C

Superfunkycalifragasexy

Sexy MF

Hide The Bone

Dolphin

Shy

Zannalee

Interactive

The Holy River

Illusion Coma Pimp & Circumstance

Crimson & Clover

Colonized Mind

F.U.N.K.

Plectrum Electrum

RNR Love Affair

I would actually rather see Prince's works get the full score treatment rather than compulsory Piano-Vocal-Guitar Tab volumes. But if I'm limited to Tab, I'd like to see true transcriptions of:

Cause And Effect

Dreamer

Funknroll [3EG version]

Screwdriver Remix

Endorphinemachine

Peach

Rockhard In A FUnky Place

2 Nigs United 4 West Compton

Superfunkycalifragisexy

Chaos & Disorder

The Love We Make

Let's Go Crazy Reloaded

Love 2 The 9's

The Everlasting Now

The Same December

The Ride

The Work, p.1

Beautiful Strange

U Make My Sunshine

When Eye Lay My Hands On U

Judas Smile

Vavoom

Listen2Prince !!

U can listen to a different Prince project every week for a year! Sometimes U might have to double (or triple) up on related albums to make it fit, tho.

I've lost faith in guitar tablature books. Too many of them have too many errors. (Bass tablature books are a different story). I've found that YouTube is a much better source for accurate or close-to-accurate lessons on your song of choice for guitar.



Jason Read on YouTube is an excellent source for Prince guitar lessons and he already has uploaded lessons for many of the songs mentioned on this thread: https://www.youtube.com/u...ery=prince



GuitarForceCom on youtube has excellent lessons on Purple Rain and Let's Go Crazy, including solos: https://www.youtube.com/u...arforcecom



For most other artists, I think this guy is the best guitar teacher on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/u...ong/videos



And other good ones are:
