    I like the idea that Robert just really didn’t know how to tune a guitar and the “devil” is just some dude who was willing to sit down and show him how to actually tune the thing 😂😂😂

    • Ivan B says:

      I actually learned to play on an out of tune guitar with terrible action. I figured out popular songs by ear to a made up tuning and got pretty good. Then I had someone tune it for me and show me how easy it was to learn to read tablature. Then I quickly progressed. I think it’s totally possible to be an amazing musician with no legit tuning skills.

      @LDNbabyJ61xx that one flew over my head

    • The Riff Writer says:

      @methanedirigible not necessarily. I got it as a teenager, fooled around for about 8 months and just threw it in a closet and forgot about it.
      But trust me, if you knew me personally and my relationship with music. Knowing how many instruments I play now, my ridiculous pedal collection and how a cheap little beat making app can keep me occupied for years, you would find it strange it took me this long. Teenagers are lazy. I just wanted to hang out with my friends and party but if they had tuning apps back then, I have little doubt where my skill level would be today.
      And lastly: I knew a ton of guitar players who all knew how interested I was in learning yet not one cared enough to show this kid how to tune the damn thing and a couple chords. Not everyone is patient enough to teach but it’s a mistake I promised myself I’d never make. I’m willing to teach anyone who’s willing to learn (sorry it was so long)

      Reminds me of the devil in South Park. Like when he sits down with Stan to explain addiction

    • Josh Gordon says:

      yea the “devil” is actually a chill dude. You love that idea, do you?

  3. Aria: Come Fast To Get Into My Body says:

    Being accused of making a pact with the devil must have been the precursor to being called a hacker in a video game.

      Wow someone said the same exact thing. Yesterday.

    • GummyBearVitamins says:

      @Leonidas Tullius but most artist already partake in those things b4 fame ?

    • Specttz says:

      ​@anotherslowtown got me laughing 😂

    • abbie says:

      ​@Leonidas Tullius I mean yeah that used to be the case…but nowadays you don’t have to join record companies to make and sell music and for the most part all the horror stories from the industry have made other artists more conscious about avoiding that kind of stuff

  4. RandomPerson964 says:

    The story of Robert Johnson reminds me of the webcomic by Sarah Andersen where people are wondering how she’s so good at art and praising her natural talents, but she keeps telling them it’s just practice.

    • soon says:

      ​@Williampond Well, good luck at being not-American, British or Aussie guy. The Americans have no idea what you mean, unless you go to some rural, small town.

      And honestly, that version is just perverse, “crabs in a bucket” jealousy. I’m not sure how it relates to your culture, exactly.

    • Julia Belyung says:

      ​@Williampond Sarah andersen does get comments praising her “natural talent”, it’s not pretentious if she calls them out and tries to encourage people by saying it’s just practice. It’s humble, and encouraging to the beginner artists in her audience.
      and just because you haven’t heard of her doesn’t mean she isn’t good, I think it’s actually super pretentious to say that, like are you an art critic or something? I’m sure there are plenty of really cool artists i haven’t heard of

    • b_delta says:

      @Williampond the comic: “you only need practice no need for talent”
      you: “oh so you want to show off how good you are? pretentious”

    • Zone Doll says:

      ​@Williampond ah, the “no fun allowed crowd” assembled

    • axezak says:

      @Williampond “how do you draw” “you practice” “wow that’s so pretentious”

  5. panqueque445 says:

    As iconic as the legend is, I think the story of a man who got laughed off the stage said “alright, I’ll show you” and became a guitar god after years of hard work and practice, is a lot more inspirational.

    • Brennan smith says:

      ​@Colby Price-Lampkin no he did give his soul because he said it himself

    • Tim Hale says:

      And with Ike Zimmerman teaching him how to play blues, often in the cemetery at night. (I’m commenting before watching the vid, so don’t know if they cover that: but Ike Taught Robert)

    • soon says:

      ​@Colby Price-Lampkin How can it be racism, when other Black people were saying it, and he said it, himself?

      Maybe you just think of EVERYTHING in a very rigid, um…”black and white” kind of way? You’re just going to end up being racist again, if you don’t fix that, in yourself.

    • Toaster Owens😬 says:

      @Colby Price-Lampkin racism really?

  6. Remy Hanna says:

    1930: He can’t be that good, he must’ve sold his soul
    2020: He can’t be that good, he must be an industry plant

  7. Aria: Come Fast To Get Into My Body says:

    This man really made a 5 hour analysis on a book about death and instead of taking a little break, he then drops a 45 minute analysis on ANOTHER American history story. Absolutely unreal, thank you for feeding us ♡

  8. Xenia says:

    Wonder what Robert would have said if someone told him that millions people would listen his songs almost eighty years after his passing.

  9. Charlotte Dictator says:

    When I was in elementary school band, I ALSO accused band members who practiced more than me (about 10 minutes a week) of making a deal with the Devil in order to cope with how much better they were than me. It appears some things never change…

  10. Matt Scot says:

    He didn’t sell his soul. Him and the Devil talked it over and both realized that it was just the most important thing that could ever happen to music, more specifically…the good old rock and roll. Good video.
