Parents Who Gifted Teen A Guitar Rewarded With Hearing Smoke On The Water Riff For Seven Hours A Day — The Betoota Advocate

A Betoota Heights couple who’ve been nothing but supportive of their son’s dreams of becoming the next Jimi Hendrix (without the drug addiction) have unfortunately been punished for their efforts, as they’re now forced to hear the same fucking guitar riff for seven hours a day.

Gifting Jason a electric guitar they’d purchased for a hundred bucks from a Cash Converters, dutiful parents Debra and Lou Hanson had promised a sunburst Ibanez at the end of the year if he practised daily, and even whispers of a Stratocaster if he got REALLY good.

Unfortunately what they hadn’t factored into the equation, was the fact that they would now be driven to madness by hearing ‘Smoke On The Water’ all day, every day – and no, not even the whole song, just the opening riff.

“DAA DAAA DAAAA DA DA DA DAAAA.”

“DA DA DAAAA DA DA DAAAAA.”

Speaking to The Advocate, Lou says they’d copped that for a solid two weeks, before Jason moved on to the next two songs that everybody learning electric guitar goes bonkers for – ‘Stairway To Heaven’ and ‘Enter Sandman.’

“Fuck me it’s driving me around the bend, how long until he starts playing some actual songs?”

“I can’t wait until he just gives up on his dreams so I can get some bloody P and Q.”

More to come.
