Cool with a guitar?

In the past, girls would consider a man with a fabulous hairstyle cool or handsome, but this trend is changing. Nowadays, in any party or gathering the one who has a cool hair may not get as much attention as the one who can play guitar!

So what do girls think about men playing guitar? And how do they interpret it?

“To me, someone who is attracted to music is a calm person, and guys look cool when they’re calm,” says Mam Julina, 18, adding that guys who can play guitar can express themselves without saying a thing.

Thao Chanthearyradh, a first year student, believes men look sweet and gentle when playing guitar. “If they play slow songs I’d feel he is feeling lonely right now. But if he plays a bit faster, like acoustic or R&B, he is in a good mood. And the sound helps me to feel relaxed.”

Another young woman, Tep Chansophea, 20, also has a similar view of guitarists. She believes that music is like a tool for men and women to get to know each other. Adding that another advantage of being able to play guitar is that it creates a favourable image.

So if you thought that bringing a guitar along was a waste of time, remember it can a lot of people happy. Guitars and other instruments can help people to speak with their inner voice. So maybe you should try to use guitar to express yourself.
