Purple Rain

Play an Easy Song on the Banjo

Purple Rain is a fabulous song that is also easy to play.  Everybody knows this one so it’s great to play with your friends!  The original song by Prince is in the key of Bb so you will need to put a capo on the 3rd fret to play with the record.  I’ve made a special version in G that you can play along without a capo, to make it easier for beginners.

Join the banjo Academy and I will show you how to play the chords so you can jam along with other people, similar to what I’m doing in the video below.  Develop your own style of playing!

Play an incredible number of songs on the banjo with jsut these easy left hand positions on the strings and frets.
