Yeah, that's been one of my faves... The rhythm guitar is pretty crazy as well.

I have not listened much to those two albums, truth be told. I've just never been that much into that era of Prince. I'll have to give 'em a listen this weekend to see if I can hear what you're talking about.

Those, and Curtis Mayfield were what I used to study when I was trynna learn how to play funky rhythm.
