Hey there

I have known this girl for some time, who is coming over for some food and chill - she knows though that I play guitar.
I'm sure that she at some point will want to see me play.
The thing is, I don't sing and I'm a intermediate player. - Been playing for 4 years now.

My problem is, what/how do I play, to like impress her? I dont want to play her favourite song or something cheesy like that. I just want to sound interesting, cause I wont be singing.

Should I just play some solo, some boring chord progression - yeah I know its tough to answer!

Thanks in advance

Play any stupid, girly song by Jason Mraz. Or anything new. She won't give a shit if you can sweep a mile a minute. Let's face it, the only people getting a hard on for your 'skills' will be guys.


Also, if you get laid, take pictures and/or video.

This, but the only way to play Django is to BECOME Django.


Best lose three of your fretting hand fingers now, or else you're doomed to fail.

I suggest doing it in a fire, for authenticity. You don't want to look like some half-assed poser now do you, TS?

And hammer-on some 7ths.

But not 4ths. That's akin to rape, as 4ths are so awesome that it causes wimmin to want to sleep with you against their will.


Precisely.

I'm fairly certain the use of a loop pedal to harmonise (3rds or 5th, generally) is illegal in most of the developed world as it's akin to date rape. 4ths likely fall under the same guidelines.

this, if she seems interested let her strum a bit, maybe you can even show her a chord or two.

You can always try and write something yourself...I was in the exact situation u were in and I played this acoustic instrumental I wrote a while back, she was very impressed! Especially after I told her I wrote it myself

Really cool - thanks for the all the awesome replys!

So... I've been looking up some catchy acoustic pieces, and thought about playing: norwegian wood, some zeppelin, maybe classical gas or house of the rising sun

I guess I dont have to play the whole god damn thing, just show her some goodies

Yeah I know its cheesy as ****, but... will it work?

Moonlight Sonata. Also teach her some easy chord thing (like 3am), she'll love that.

She's a "hipster" type of a girl - what would you play then?
#33
don't play guitar- impress her with the fact you're a nice person and are genuinely interesting. If it comes up, play something you've written. Playing guitar only to impress a chick is insulting to her and yourself.

Just be honest and tell her you liked playing guitar but still learning. Girls like honesty trust me. Who knows, you and the girl will probably learn the guitar together if she's interested.

Don't try to be what you're not.

Ditch the guitar and play the ukulele. Guitars are too mainstream.

Ill only be playing if she insists - my plan is to interest her with food and my charme ofc
we just talk alot about music and what I like/tend to play, when I play with my band, so Im thinking she'll want to hear it
