Local Guitar Love
Once a friend of mine and I were at this local bar.
The bar was locally famous for the band that played there on weekends.
Not so much the band, but the guitar player.
He had a unique trait that made him very memorable, beyond his guitar playing skills.
And that trait was that he had a very, very long cord from his guitar to his amp.
So when the band was playing, he would wander around the whole place.
Behind the crowd, either side of the crowd.
But when it came time for a solo, he’d eventually make his way back up on stage.
Where everybody could see them.
Then he would just rip.
And so, my friend remarked:
Lots Of Practice
“That dude must sleep with his guitar.”
Meaning he must spend every spare moment playing.
I knew this guy that did magic.
He was good enough to make a living, but it was only a hobby.
He’d ALWAYS have a deck of cards.
Whenever we’d be hanging out, he’d pull them out and start shuffling and dealing from various places inside the deck.
Not looking, just doing it while talking about regular stuff.
Most of us ignored it, as that was just part of his personality.
But much, much better than his card tricks was his magician’s pattern.
He would only (usually) do this with strangers.
Particularly lovely ladies.
But this dude had not only some mad magic game but an INTENSE stare.
Like two fire bolts of charisma going into your brain.
And while he was starting at you like Rasputin, he’d be telling a story about something.
A very, very interesting story.
But all that, the story and his eyes, were misdirection.
To cover his magic.
Then he’d finish the story, you’d come out of your trance, and he’d ask you where the card was.
And you’d look around and find it was in the waitresses shoe or something.
High level skills require high level practice.
But more than practice, you need to ENJOY practicing.
Guitar guy REALLY loved playing.
More than the energy from the crowd.
That’s why he’d wander around.
My friend REALLY liked doing magic.
And he REALLY liked telling stories.
Funny thing is when you enjoy practicing, it’s no longer practicing.
It’s just enjoying your hobby.
Some hobbies are expensive, some aren’t.
Sports are generally pretty expensive.
Hang gliding, scuba diving, rock climbing, all expensive in terms of time and money.
But things like card tricks and guitar playing?
Not so much.
Even cheaper and MORE thrilling are skills that you can practice anywhere, anytime without spending a penny.
Like conversational skills.
Covert hypnotic skills.
All fun, all fantastic and all free.
Mind Persuasion has plenty of books and courses to teach you how to speak hypnotically and persuasively.
