I know, I know, this may sound cheesy or trivial, but admit it, one of the main reasons you started playing an instrument was "DAAYUUM I want to play this song to that girl" or "DAAYUUM let me learn this instrument so that I can show off with my friends".

So, which is the song where you spent lots of hours of practice just to be able to play it to your friends/crushes and impress them? And what was the result?

As a bassist I went straight for Higher Ground by RHCP and it kinda worked with my friends, for the only time in my life I was the cool kid at school.. for a week.
I didn't get the same result with girls but that's an other story.

yeah, i'm with OP on this one. while i turned out to absolutely love playing the guitar, and i do most of my playing in a room on my own or with my brother and mum when we're in the living room, i started playing guitar thinking that it would be cool to be able to play guitar.

impressive songs on the acoustic... hmm... i think classical gas is one.

on the electric, Snow (Hey Oh) is a very difficult riff. i don't usually learn songs in full for some reason but i think a lot of john mayer songs are very impressive too, on the acoustic mainly.

i think the most impressive thing on an electric is to do a very expressive solo over a backing track or with a band personally. it's difficult to improvise a solo but i love it.

I'm not talking only about pussy.. Songs to show off in general saying "Hey look, I can play the guitar.. Will you pick me first next time?"

I respectfully disagree - playing guitar usually gets me a reasonable amount of pussy.

Playing other stuff may work better though.
The piano is a favorite in my experience.

Also the turntables work just right and are easy to carry around.

^ the stuff that gets me some pussy though mostly is in the style of wonderwall.
Then there are some rock songs still played on acoustic guitar and sung by myself.

Still, I'm not complaining.

Though it may also be the case that I get pussy because I'm a good showman.
And I'm also extremely handsome.
I mean I have a beard, girls tend to like beards a lot around here.

Sounds complicated. I'll just leave it the way it is.

You just write at the front of it and [./spoiler] (without the period) at the end of it.

I'm not sure, but I don't think so. I don't know how much the character limit is.

The character limit remains the same, though the sig gets condensed.

You should do that, I hate long sig's.

Doesn't count then. Musicians are the only people who are impressed by musicians.

Just pick any popular song and make a fingerstyle arrangement, like what Sungha Jung (Korean guy who plays guitar on Youtube) does. I'm not going to lie I've been considering buying an acoustic just so I can do that. Playing electric guitar by yourself isn't as fun as it used to be : /
