cut your heart out with a pocket knife, and take a picture of it, and sell it on ebay.

Bring your guitar down to your local crossroads, where a murderer should be buried. Lay the dead crow that you're supposed to have with you across the grave, and the Devil should appear. Then you give him your guitar and ask him to tune it for you. He'll give it back and you'll be the greatest ever.

Wow. I've never mixed Irish folklore with Robert Johnson before... it's a veritable cocktail of mythical fun!
Peace, peace, and that's my piece.

phycologicaly speaking, the inner/hidden meaning of the story is that you must forgo all other activities other then playing guitar inorder to become a good player.

the "soul", is a combination of all the things we do and say which make the person that we choose to be.
Keeping that psychological primis in mind, we can then see that the "Devil" is a representation of the fact that it would be bad, perhaps the worst possible thing to stop doing other daily activities and strickley focus on your guitar playing because it would consume your intire life, or your "soul".

the act of selling your soul is simply you making the concious deceasion to forgo all other activites besides your guitar playing.

(I.E. the Devil is the worst or most evil possible representation in the african amercian christian shaped culture which the story draws its roots from.)

Well, most people would bring their guitar down to the crossroads, but there's got to be another way because Jim Morrison didn't play guitar. On The Simpsons, Bart wrote "Bart's Soul" on a piece of paper and sold it to Milhouse for $5. Let's combine the two. Write the possesive form of your name with the word soul on a piece of paper, bring your guitar to the crossroads and when Satan comes let him play a song on your guitar and give him the pice of paper.

Can you imagine actually saying that to a Priest/Vicar/Reverend/Paid up member of the God Squad? HILARIOUS.

In both British and African folklore, the Crossroads held a similar status. In Britain back in the day, they used to bury the bodies of murders/rapists/prostitutes/other ungodly folk, as they were away from the town. In African tradtion, the Crossroads were where Devils hung out.
