Two New Studies Suggest Women Are More Attracted to a Man Holding a Guitar
Guitar World ^ | May 7, 2014 | Damian Fanelli

Posted on 05/07/2014 4:36:09 PM PDT by ConservativeStatement

There's a certain Je ne sais quoi about a guy holding a guitar.

Or so says a new study from France, which suggests that a man is perceived as more attractive to women if there’s a guitar in his hands. The study's results are similar to the findings of a 2012 study from Israel.

France, Israel, Hoboken or Bumpass, Virginia — it doesn't matter where the guitarist is from. The point is, male guitarists are generally viewed as promising mating material (as if we didn't all know that already)!

Speaking from experience (and not as a guitar player), this is true. Knowing how to play it is important, however.

You don't need to know how to play it today. Women today listen to hip hop and EDM (electronic dance music) made with ZERO guitars. The instruments are all “samples” or synthesized.

Don't even need to know how to sing. They like the sound of artificially tuned voices by people who "speak" the words.

Not to this woman!

A man is more attractive if there's a certain light in his eye, a gentlemanly confidence. I also find them more attractive when they have rifles, pistols, work tools, or the controls to fast planes or cars in their hands! ;^)

I can attest to it...

MANY years playing lead guitar in club bands.

MANY fights with girlfriends and then wife due to broads hanging all over me...

Yeah... I AM smiling right now... hehehe... Those were good days.

I don’t think I EVER paid for my own drinks back then.

When I was a pre-teen I played piano and ukulele and was not popular with the women folk. At 13 a cousin gave me an old guitar and my world changed drastically.

And shortly after that I was in a band and proved Gene Simmons' philosophy to be an absolute truth. Which is "Play in a band, you get to date the cheerleaders and the prom queens!" I married the head cheerleader who was also the prom queen!

And it was all due to the guitar!

What a blast that must have been! {^)

I used to like to go party with the local bands after the bars closed, in my wild and wanton yute in a small rowdy town. It's a wonder any of us survived. I can think of one tall guitar player, all the girls loved him (including my bar-hopping buddy). One night driving home his van ended up in a ditch, poor guy. He wasn't even a heavy drinker or druggie, just a nice kind of gentle guy. It was very sad. But on the whole .. most of us pulled through. A lot of 'em even became conservatives!!! {^)

The researchers say that women have their eyes on musicians but really it's their lute that they want!

My boyfriend in high school picked banjo very well. I was so in love with him. I remember one crisp fall day meandering up scenic coastal Highway One to Monterey, me behind the wheel in his gigantic landyacht Buick convertible with the top down, him kicked-back in the big passenger seat, all relaxed, picking banjo and playing fabulous tunes as the scenery rolled by.

"An enchanted moment ..."

It just isn’t VH to me. Dave back and Mike out is still a cover band to me. I’m sure it was OK, but I’d rather keep the memory of the real thing intact.
