the more peaceful households are those with girls because they prefer the harp or flute




In my opinion, most children nowadays don't give a **** about playing any instrument but eh.

First pic is a bass. Good effort.


Mate, I think that was the point of the picture - dipicting an apparently, rare class of girls who do actually play a guitar.

Bass guitar?

Interesting.

I found it quite strange though that overall the violin was more popular than guitar.

Most likely, but an exception has to be made for the harp.

I'm a female rocker, I play all sorts of guitar and drums and "girly" instruments.
I think it depends more on the music you grow up listening to.
I grew up listening to mostly rock, therefore I was geared more to those instruments.
If I had grown listening to classical, like two of my close friends, I would play those instruments, which they do.

I don't know, seems a bit odd

I know quite a few guitar players, and it's a pretty even split TBH, maybe a couple more guys, but still.

Well, aren't I a walking contradiction? I'm not buying that article too much. As a girl, I've never been pressured by peers to go for a classical instrument. Maybe it's because I didn't pick up any instruments of my own free will until I was 12, but I've never felt any social pressure towards any instrument. I just like to play instruments that play a big part in the music I like.

It seems like the article didn't take much effort. Just the "boys like trucks and girls like dolls" philosophy extended to music with some stats mixed in.

Yes! Dude I have many friends who have jobs and don't spend time on any hobbies except sports (watching/playing) or tv, you know people who only live to socialize and when I play guitar they're like "Woah you're so cool! Play *insert song name*!"

This! Hah most people aren't bothered about learning an instrument. A lot of people will find it weird. Although obviously not all because people think it's cool that metaldud536 does.... I know what I mean ~sigh~

Somebody is butthurt about something.

Anyway, I was always encouraged to play the Bass. My Dad was a Bass player..so eh, he taught me a bit and gave me the best advice I could get. He never thought anything was weird about me learning it, and neither did the people that surrounded me. I never caught flack. Ever.

The reason why most of the girls i know don't wanna learn guitar is cause they say it hurts their fingers haha. Like a couple of times my friends wanted to try my acoustic guitar and i was teaching them a few simple chords and they handed it back to me saying their fingers hurt.
