As you absorb the wisdom from Thorpe’s lesson…
A Newfound Confidence Surges Through Your Veins
With a defiant puff of your chest, you re-enter your home amidst the jarring feedback.
Your living room has been
Transformed into an unexpected
Battleground of guitars!
Sparks materialise in the air as Thorpe’s artistry clashes with the cringe-inducing strains of Tino’s ill-fated Ed Sheeran jazz cover.
It’s your moment to join this musical duel.
An impromptu jam session ensues as your guitar melds with Thorpe’s, drowning out Tino’s relentless criticisms and silencing the disruptive ‘feedback’.
During this showdown, a revelation hits you – Tino’s annoying remarks are not just irritations; they are echoes of the Gatekeeper’s curse.
Harmonising with Thorpe, you add your own notes to the mix.
Tino retaliates, playing louder, but the sublime harmonies you and Thorpe create prove too much for his feeble resistance.
The room resonates with the victory of your musical collaboration, and Tino the Terrible succumbs as…
His strings snap one by one!!!
He falls to the ground with the thud of a thousand bass drums…
However, the battle is not over.
With a sudden surge of defiance, Tino rallies for a final onslaught.
He crawls to a spare guitar in the corner of your room…
…And plays louder than ever.
You and Thorpe counter every move.
The clash of strings becomes more intense, creating a symphony of chaos and triumph.
“Get your damn greasy paws off my guitar!” you say to him with defiance.
…And at that moment, Tino’s resistance crumbles under the weight of your combined musical prowess.
He crashes out the door as fast as a Hendrix solo, never to be seen or heard from again.
“That was the final test”
…declares Thorpe, unveiling Tino as the last loyal follower of the Gatekeeper.
“I couldn’t have done it without you,” he acknowledges, recognising your pivotal role in the triumph.
With shared smiles, you both raise your glasses in a victorious toast, proclaiming,
“To the love of the six-string and all the joy it can bring.”
The legend of Tino the Terrible fades into just another eccentric chapter in your ongoing saga with the Acoustic Asylum, marking a testament to the uncharted territories you explore in the pursuit of musical mastery…
But you stand tall, proud of what you’ve achieved during this crazy week… and excited for the future of …your guitar playing.
