Eugene is an extraordinary talent in classic guitar, but he dreams of being a famous Blues guitarist. So he investigates to find a storied lost song. He asks the legendary Blues musician Willie Brown to help him, but Willie demands to free him from the old-people's prison first and to really learn the blues on the way to its origin: Mississippi Delta. Eugene doesn't know yet about Willie's deal with the devil, that he now wants to revoke. Written by

Did You Know?
Though the blues guitar sounds aren't truly coming from Ralph Macchio
's fingers, he plays the music of Steve Vai
and Ry Cooder
note for note. His fingering, slides, and bends are precise until the "main" solo, which incorporates Paganini's 5th Caprice, where he does not finger the correct locations on the guitar. He mostly uses the same pattern (scale on the top frets, then another one in the bottom frets). The scales shift and change sound, but his patterns remain the same. See more
When Willie and Eugene buy the Telecaster at the pawn shop, they saw off a piece of metal tubing to make Eugene a "bottleneck" to play guitar with. Later, in a close-up, he uses an actual glass bottleneck. See more
