I am probably the most boring friend you will ever meet! When I was in high school, i used to be that nerdy guy that you would never consider to hang out it. I do not have any outlet or never been part of any extra curricular activities. I am not physically fit to join the varsity and I am not wise enough to make it through our chess team. So generally, i spent my high school years doing nothing but the typical student routine without taking any courage to step out of my comfort zone.
Little did my friends and classmates know, i am really into music and if I can only turn back time, i could have joined an amateur high school band or even our school choir. I would love to play a guitar or sing in front of a crowd but of course, that’s just how i imagine myself in my day dreams. I just find it so cool if you know how to play an instrument and allow me to list down the reasons why.
It Could Be An Ideal Way To Channel Your Emotions
If you find it hard express your feelings through words, why not channel your emotions through music? Guitar or any form of musical instruments could be a perfect way to do so. I am so amazed by those people who knows how to express their feelings through music and how they can manage to connect such emotion to everyone who listens to them.
You Gain Friends With the Same Interest Without Trying Hard To Fit In
Like they said, birds of the same feather pluck together and it applies the same thing for people who shares the same interest with music. Those who play guitar doesn’t have to exert any effort just to fit in on a group he wants to be with (nobody should do that on the first place because people should accept you at your worst). I just find it amazing how you can easily gain friends by simply playing a guitar. If you play a guitar in front of a crowd , there’s definitely someone out there who will not hesitate to jam in.
Coping Up With Stress
This could be related to the first one. Playing guitar could be a great way to cope up with stress. It could switch your attention to the chords you are playing rather than those things that bothers you. Of course, it is only a temporary solution but at least you gave your mind a time to rest so you can think clearer and possibly wiser.
It Could Be A Hobby or You Can Take It Professionally!
If you are bored or if you have a lot of time to spare, you can use your time playing instruments instead of wasting it on something useless an unproductive. Guitars or any form of instrument whether a piano or even those bugles at guitar center can be learned and it could be an interesting progress. Take note that it is not a talent but a skill that you can yield. You can take it as a hobby or better yet you can do it professionally.
A Great Way to Impress Girls
Okay, this is me speaking in behalf of all men who just find it hard to court girls or to do something to catch their attention haha. It’s true, girls can easily be impressed by a guy who can strum guitar seamlessly. Not to mention if you got the total package (if you can sing well and if you can compose your own songs).
So there you go, these are just few good reasons why it is so cool if you know how to play a guitar.
