Pocket Ninja: The most important element of this strategy -- and, truly, this cannot be emphasized enough -- is that once you've gone out and obtained the guitar that you're going to pretend to know how to play, you must develop some effortlessly authentic excuses as to why you cannot simply play on demand. This is more difficult than you might think. One strategy is to cut several of the strings...not all the way, mind you, but just enough that pressure upon them (the sort one might exert with a few "warm up" strums" will cause them to snap. "Damn, I left my replacement string at home." Practice saying that with a slow head shake, a disappointed lip curl. Be disgusted with yourself, and let her try to make you feel better.
studs up: unfarkingbelievable: gja: I prefer to show gals my big organ........[encrypted-tbn3.gstatic.com image 257x196]Impressive, huh?But can you carry it on your back?A girl's got to have standards?
Some Bass Playing Guy: Unfortunately, I play bass, which has been proven to not get you laid. :)
Angry Drunk Bureaucrat: In related news, scientists say that if you carry around an accordion, your chances of being stuffed in a locker increase by 50%.
Sybarite: This glockenspiel on the other hand has done NOTHING for me.
XMark: Man, I can actually play guitar really good. It hasn't helped me one bit!
Jayone: So, what happens when I carry around my three guitars? And can actually play them.
noitsnot: The meta-rule is "Do stuff that gives you status" (or at least be perceived to do said stuff). Anything that will get a group of people paying attention to you as you either do it, or tell them about doing it.It can be playing guitar, rock climbing, motorcycle racing, just getting back from overseas, winning big in Vegas, opening a brew pub, getting your black belt, whatever.A big step in that direction is not being in your room playing Xbox. Another key feature is to achieve things as an individual - don't get buried in the group.
nickerj1: AlwaysRightBoy: I've lent out some of my dogs to single friends but I'll tell them about the odds with a guitar.I had significant success with my dog. You can immediately start talking to any girl in any situation if you have a dog with you. It is socially acceptable.
Accordion: As an accordionist I have gotten more women than as a guitarist. Chicks dig the accordion.
