Say for some reason you end up having to chose between being able to see, or being able to hear.. which would you chose?

I realise that this is probably going to be biased towards being able to hear on a guitar forum, but meh, let's see.

Been done before.

Anyway, i really dont know. I listen to music to keep me sane, but that could be just because theres some music out there that could make me insane, so i listen to the good stuff. On the other hand theres lots of things i like to look at, and lots of things i really dont like to look at.

If i was to pick sound, so i can play guitar it would be kinda ****. I mean what if i wanted to leanr something and i couldnt figure it out by ear? Its not like i ccan just read the tab or anything.

Sight. Living in a world I couldn't see would be infinitely more terrifying than living in a world I couldn't hear. As far as I'm concerned, being deaf would make the world a more tolerable place.

Hearing is eventually fixable IMO, although im no scientist and I think it depends on how you lost it.
Could always get a hearing-aid?
Just because you cant hear doesnt mean you can play guitar. Id rather be able to see than be blind.

I agree.

I have a feeling this thread will be filled with posts like: "Nah dude, I couldn't live without music. It's my air, heart and soul. I'd go insane without it. It truly is, from the bottom of my heart, my life."

I love music, who here doesnt?
But id rather be able to see the ones I love and do the things I do without being blind.

That way I could smoke weed 24/7 and tell people I am trying to get my sight back.

I can still touch my girlfriend, but without sound I wouldn't be able to hear her squirm.

I also agree. I've already heard plenty of music, I'm sure I'll remember enough of it for my lifetime (I have the ability to listen to music in my head, note for note how the song sounds). Besides, I'm sure I could manage playing guitar without hearing myself.

Loss of sight would be much harder to deal with. It would be much harder to navigate. I'd never be able to see friends or family again. I'd never be able to marvel at beautiful women, landscapes, etc. I wouldn't be able to do most things I enjoy. Some things in life are much more important than music,

Without hearing you can't socialize and you become paranoid, its a common problem among deaf people, my aunt and her husband are deaf, and it sucks...
And I would kill myself without music.

How does one play anything note worthy on any instrument without hearing themselves? More importantly the other musicians they're playing with.
As for seeing friends and family, are they really that beautiful? Cause when I think of friends and family I'd rather chat with them than stare at them.
Women, I can picture them going for the chatty charming blind guy, you still have your hands, not everything in the world is just eye candy.

Can learn to lip read.

Wasn't Beethoven deaf?


Not until later in life. And it's why he became an alcoholic and started to loose his mind.

How can you live without eyes, it'd be horrible, plus music isn't all you people's lives

You're failing to see the point, it's not just about music, it's about interacting with people, you learn to navigate without sight, but when you're intending to be a lawyer (or a musician), as I am, there's no room in court for a guy with no instant comebacks.
