Well now, it seems that according to a new French study we (Guitar players of this world) are:
Attractive to 31% of women (When carrying a guitar case) compared to...
14% Of men who carry nothing.
9% Of men carrying a sports bag.
Yep, more women will give their numbers / go on a date with a man carrying a guitar case than a sports bag or nothing at all.
In another Israeli study a Male Facebook user who had a profile photo of them with a guitar got responses (to friend requests) from 28% the women they sent the request to compared to 10% of responses when they didn't have a guitar in the photo.
The researchers claim that:
"the fact that playing a musical instrument is a sign that the man is intelligent, can learn, or is willing to learn, new skills and has independent hobbies.
They believe there may also be a link between how musicians are portrayed in the media, and that holding a guitar is a sign of wealth and status."
Unfortunately both where small scale studies which are unreliable. But let's not get bogged down with that kind of detail. Instead rejoice in the fact that we are irresistible to the laydees!!!
