Revelation! Women can actually pull off playing keytar!
« on: May 30, 2012, 05:02:32 PM »
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! ;)

Well, Prime Mover, you must remember that it is most fair for a woman of high-standing stature to perform the most delicate instrument--such as virginal to harpsichord--and as we fast forward to the present, this standard is thus in practice (but now with a portable virginal). ;)

Delicate is right... most of those things look like the plastic would break if you just touched it wrong!
