Prince’s mind-blowing guitar solo from the 2004 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, performing “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” in tribute to George Harrison on stage with Tom Petty, Jeff Lynne, Steve Linwood and George’s son, Dhani, is one of the greatest guitar god moments in rock. 

Now, a new edit has emerged online by Joel Gallen, who directed and produced the original Hall of Fame broadcast, adding “lots more close-ups” to offer fans a closer-than-ever perspective of the legendary moment. Occasional split screens show Prince’s fingers tearing up the fretboard, while were reaction shots from the other musicians on stage give you the impression they knew they were watching history in the making. 

Check it out below (Prince’s solo kicks in at 3:29).

Joel Gallen said: “17 years after this stunning performance by Prince, I finally had the chance to go in and re-edit it slightly — since there were several shots that were bothering me. I got rid of all the dissolves and made them all cuts, and added lots more close-ups of Prince during his solo. I think it’s better now.”
