Let me just put this out there: guys with guitars are instantly cooler and hotter (if that’s possible) than your average guy.
While in Utica, NY this weekend visiting hubby’s family, we went and saw a friend of ours play at a local bar, The Devereux. Now Ryan is a good looking, smart and fun guy, but the minute he started strumming his guitar and singing, it was as if he became a rock star in the eyes of all the girls in the bar (I freely admit I was one of them!). Now mind you, we’re not talking a guy playing around a campfire, Ryan’s a real musician and he’s good.
It validated my theory, that you can take any average guy, give him a guitar, and he can instantly charm a girl.
Ryan’s girlfriend, Rachel, had a different and perhaps more accurate assessment; give any average guy a skill, that’s difficult and if he’s good at it, that’s what’s ultimately so attractive.
Despite my initial hesitation, because I so love guitar players, I would have to agree with Rachel. An average guy who happens to also be an artist, carpenter, photographer, computer software designer or writer, instantly gets a few extra points on the super cool scale. Hubby is the coolest, hottest guy I know, but instead of a guitar, he’s mastered the art of cooking. And even Tom Brady, isn’t he just an average guy who’s a great quarterback, well maybe not, maybe he’s just hot.
