    I don't know if this has been discussed before but I was just curious as to why u guys have taken to playing a guitar? As for me following are the reasons:

    1. to impress girls
    2. I like the band iron maiden and would be elated to play even half as good as dave murray does, someday.
    3. I can put it on my cv
    4. pursue a new hobby
    5. impress girls

    My answer doesn't fit your options.
    Have you ever felt completely lost in something, you wouldn't care more about anything. That's how I felt.

    I think of myself as an advanced pianist , but you still can't play hard rock or metal (I love Metallica !) on the piano . So, I decided to learn the guitar to learn more music and play music of a larger variety of genres and to be a more versatile musician :D

    I liked the vibrations (acoustic hollow body) when I played it close to my groin.

    haha psh, that was a hindi translation of Kanye West interrupting some awards where Taylor Swift got best music video. It had seemed like such a good idea then.

    you start guitar with passion but by the time you're quite good at it the passion gets rationalized to other reasons to continue putting in time. if you started guitar with the intention to impress girls..well there are hundreds of other activities which impress girls more than guitar.

    and then years later you realize you didn't need to impress the girl to score anyway

    Impressing girls is the lamest reason i could think of... You don't need to work that hard to impress girls...
    If you can impress a girl you can impress a girl if you can't then you can't..

    well i wouldn't really go as far as to call it the "lamest reason", but yeah..it is a very short-sighted (and rarely successful) goal.

    According to me if someone tries to play guitar just to impress gals ,well he's not gonna go anywhere.. if he plays what little he has learnt to a gal just to impress her she will be able to tell that.. You're not gonna impress her that way.. you know why gals are impressed by guitarists..? well a real guitarist plays with passion.. You know how long it takes to play a guitar well..? Years.. When a guitarist plays , the gal will be able to feel the dedication he had for years in learning that instrument.. That is what that impresses her..

    If you're new to guitar please.. please.. don't learn it just to impress a gal.. A guitar is worth more respect than that..

    ... but hanging the guitar while scoring chicks really help - they go like OOOHH, a rockstar! and become your groupies ...
    I don't know but is it inbuilt in female gender?

    @alpha : ya.. you're right.. well, they see all those romance in the big screen with the hero playing guitar for his love and they've been seen this so many times right form their childhood and they all wish it happens in their life as well.. that's why guitarists score more gals than keyboardists or bassists..
