personally I like a guy that plays an instrument. when they play they look so passionate about what they're doing. it shows dedication to their craft and its just interesting to learn something from the person, maybe then can share that talent with you and its nice to think that one day they can sing or play something for you, its very romantic .
It doesn't make a difference to me. My ex did and and it never really appealed to me, like how some girls swoon over a guy just cause he plays guitar. Except it kind of made me feel like he was more emotional, but he was like a songwriter too.
but I can tell you for sure that it works, I used to play solo and in bands and when I did those things I got laid every night. it was nice, but on the other hand it's like, really? girls are that stupid that all you need is to play guitar, or have money and they'll f*** you? like you know, really? this is it? it's discouraging to me actually, to know this to be true.
