What Did TJ Bryan Watch On YouTube Yesterday? (8/19/22)
There’s no question that Prince was a musical genius, but he surrounded himself with other amazing musicians like the Revolution’s Wendy Malvoin. The guitarist was Prince’s right-hand woman and she contributed so much to Prince’s sound, and she was one of few female guitarists to be featured prominently in music at the time.
I just came across this video from a few months ago where Wendy sits down for guitar pedal company Vertex Effects to discuss how she got the different sounds she and Prince were looking for and she demonstrates the iconic riff she came up with for “Purple Rain.” There’s a lot of technical talk in here, so gearheads enjoy that while everyone else just appreciate the brilliance of Wendy!
