We all know that keytars look universally rediculous. Maybe it's the cheap plastic, or the pittiful "I wanted to be a badass guitar god, but my mommy forced me to take piano lessons instead" image it portrays. But unless your Herby Handcock, you're going to look silly. Except if you're female. Somehow, women are able to pull it off, where-as men can't. This isn't even about sex appeal, I just think women escape the whole "wannabe machismo" image that guys exude the minute they strap one on.
Just look at this google image search
. Suddenly it all makes sense!
Look, I'd love to have a keytar... I like to move around while I'm playing, and keyboards are so stationary. But I once mentioned to my girlfriend that I'd like to get a keytar, and she threatened to break up with me! I UNDERSTAND! I'd break up with me too if I saw myself playing one! ;)
