All Valid points! Still, my guitar gently weeps... If your're a women guitar player, I'd say 99% of the reasons guitars are better than women are the same as the 99 reasons guitars are better than men. Jokes are life's representations given to you. How you deal with them is ALL about PERSPECTIVE. Or perhaps look at it from one of any other perspctive your focused on:

Live and let live,

Open your heart,and share those feelings . tough but...(IMPORTANT)

Let others share their's without interruption or judgment

Carpe Diem,( sieze the day) More importantly, the moment!

Find a job wher you can... WORK like you don't need the money..

LOVE... Like you've never been hurt.

And DANCE like no one is watchin (it's the MOST fun for me). busta MY first visit to this site, which I think is GREAT! Thanks ya'll Bustaone

Carol, I talk some friends about the "dreamy eyed image." Your sure right about the hormones though.

Caitrin, what if I want a gorgeous and intelligent (I'm not sure I care for "bouncy")? What can achieve that? As for dreamy eyed guitar playing snobs, If I ever achieve the "dreamy eyed image," I'll try to be different.
As for guys, maybe you should have them try your cookies. I've heard they're good! A hot girl with good cookies has a LOT of power! Believe me! Can I have one?

DM, I just performed Dowland a couple weeks ago! Dowland is a fun composer to play. I play Queen Elizabeth's Galliard and Come Away. Both wonderful pieces. I'll more soon! BMW

I've got a guitar called Martin and it's true love. One day we may go our ways, Martin to his new love and me to mine. Maybe I'll find another Martin or maybe an Armstrong or - who knows ?? - easy to pickup whichever way.

One thing I do know, It'll not want the house, the car, half the cat, and five hundred quid a month for the next ten years.

As for the wife....!!!

Yes, I truly love my guitar !

There's a 1940's song called "My Guitar is My Sweetheart," where guitar is pronounced "GEE-tar." I'll post what I remember in another thread, if I can't find the whole song. For some reason I've been trying to remember the words lately anyway.

Emma - I think breakfast in bed is a silly idea. I much prefer to have breakfast after I have washed, brushed my teeth, dressed, and generally woken up.

I don't go out "drinking with the lads".

However, the thing about cuddling up at night, I can relate to.

So...you got one out of three, which is better than none at all.

Guitars can't forge your signature on a credit card application form - not a first hand personal experience, but one I've seen.

Guitars don't tell you how to drive.

Guitars don't need the lavatory seat left down for them.

Guitars don't object to your attentions after the first year's practice and then suddenly demand it after 20 when you've lost interest.

Oh well, at least your father gave you some good words there, Matt. I hope it turns out that way for you someday. Me, I have the gravest suspicions about the institution of marriage, but some people, like Spaw, seem to be very happy in it, which is hopeful.

Guitars are neither better nor worse than girls. They just are. Girls are more complicated, however, and not nearly as easy to learn to "play", in a general sense of the word.

Not that guitars are all that easy either...

See, it all depends on what sort of girls you're trying to attract. If you want gorgeous bouncy girls, go out and learn some Dave Matthews. It makes you look deep. If you want intelligent women, play what you like, play it well, above all play it like you enjoy it, and they will come.
I find the dreamy-eyed look rather pretentious and annoying, m'self. I've known too many dreamy-eyed arrogant SOB guitarists.

Benjamin, t'was ever thus. It's called 'hormones'. They're powerful stuff.

I don't think I can help you much with the 'dreamy-eyed look' from where I am. Do you have any female friends about your age who would be willing to give you some pointers? Anyway, good luck with it.

*grins* Guitars are definitely better than guys, at least in my (rather limited) experience. They don't cheat on you, lie to you, or dump you, for instance.
Not that there aren't perfectly wonderful guys out there, I'm sure...I'm just feeling cynical at the moment and liking my Alvarez much better than my ex-boyfriend.

I find that guitars and girls have nothing in common what so ever. Neither is there any comparison between woman and guitars. I personally could not stand to be with a woman who just layed around all day waiting to be plucked. Guitars must be handled to really find their true merits. While a great woman is something to behold from every aspect. She doesn't need your help when it comes to blowing your mind into next week. Guitar is sort of a romantic science. Physical yes but somewhat removed from the activities possible a woman. Guitars have a beautiful shape they are warm and sensual but THEY are woody. Which is why I always sort of thought of guitars as masculine. Thats rather opposite than what is expressed herebefore. But I never found a guitar that could replace a real good friend of any gender.

Am I old fashioned,

Luke

Hyperbolic or not, I'm starting to feel agreement with mousethief and midchuck on that teenagers point...

Sure hope she (my teenager) can start using her talent to pull her own weight a bit. LWe know she is capable of terribly clever sarcasm, but it gets wearisome rather quickly. Results partly of being raised on "The Simpsons" and exposed to my own acerbic wit...and I guess your beloved offspring have had the same kind of cultural context eh mouse & mid!

At the same time though, if you focus on "worthless" that is what you will get. I'm trying to see the good qualities, which other people keep mentioning to me...

Don't pick on mousethief. It's true. Most teenagers of both sexes go through a period of being worthless. Mine lasted a good 10 or 15 years. In most cases, it's temporary. But aren't most of the world's problems due to people who got stuck in that developmental stage?

Actually, Benjamin, you'd be surprised. I recently attended a performance in a coffee shop given by a young man who was studying classical guitar at University. He played a lot of different kinds of stuff, and he did one solo piece by Heitor Villa-Lobos. Certainly not in the same league as Dave Mathews.

He had plenty of attractive and admiring young women around him. Of course, he wasn't too hard on the eyes, either. Maybe you just haven't captured the right sort of dreamy-eyed look that you need to have when you're playing in order to get their attention.

Dreamy-eyed is good. Whatever you're playing. I promise.

So that's really what you think of your daughters? I wouldn't know if that's true. I haven't met them.

As for girls and guitars. The trick is to play Ben Harper and Dave Mathews and other popular stuff people listen to these days that I've never heard of. I don't know any of it, but I see it work for my friends. Girls apparently have no interest in John Dowland or Tárrega. It's a shame!

This reminds me of the time I played music in a park in Hawaii, and there were these drunk and rowdy guys who kept requesting Dylan songs (fortunately I knew plenty), and then the sun began to set and was it ever gorgeous, and while they were momentarily distracted I slipped away and had a very nice rest in my tent, while the park security threatened to throw the other fellas out. They did finally shut up.
