Acoustic master Andy McKee recently visited the Guitar World studio in New York City to perform his incredible solo-guitar arrangement of Prince’s “Purple Rain”—and to discuss meeting and touring with Prince.

“About four years ago, my manager contacted me and told me Prince wanted to work together,” McKee says. “He found me on YouTube and fell in love with my song ‘Rylynn’.”

McKee’s unique Prince tale is pretty fascinating—and you can hear it all in the clip below.

At the 7:35 point in the video, McKee even provides a brief “Purple Rain” tutorial. Enjoy!
