The fact that Prince is a purple-loving, sex-obsessed pop music genius can make it easy to forget that he's also one badass guitar player. "Guitar," from the upcoming "Planet Earth" album, is sort of slight as a song qua song, but the repeated, ringing guitar figure and two solos -- one slinky, the other wailing -- are its real raison d'être, ably showcasing Prince's six-string prowess.
