Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: It's an interesting concept: a guitar player who can exercise mind control, but who's frightened by his ability.

Con: There's no plot at all, and the first half really drags. Once he does figure out his power, it's so extravagant, the story pretty much has to end there.

  1. This is so scattered. The power comes out of nowhere and seems unrelated to playing or the titular guitar. Other than somehow obtaining "Miss Cruz" by rendering the previous owner brain dead.
