For women, it seems, there’s something about a man holding an instrument. That’s the conclusion of a just-published study from France, which found a man is more attractive to the opposite sex if there’s a guitar in his hand.

I believe that would depend on the "instrument."

Well! Helloooo Dave!

They surrender easily in France

Looks to me like he needs more fiber in his diet, but if were a person of the female persuasion, I would surely be hoping he invited me backstage after the show.

Why did I pick the drums?

Hubba, hubba, Dave! Move over, Barry Manilow! *wink*

Dave used to play for The Flaming Lips but they burned off.

I have a custom Humbucker which havs proved to be a great pickup over the years.

That's, um, an unusual expression. Been listening to some Phil Collins lately?

Somethin' keeps him goin', miles and miles a day
To find another place to play

Then the lights begin to flicker and the sound is getting dim
The voice begins to falter and the crowds are getting thin
But he never seems to notice he's just got to find
Another place to play,
Fade Away
Got to Play

And don't forget the sense of humor. Major turn on.

"I'll be in my bunk."

So how come I don't get any action? After all. I play the kazoo.

Works for Nigel Tufnel.

Those Federal Duck guys always got the chicks.

...though puffy squirrel cheeks have been known to sort of cancel out the guitar effect.

Rock Bottom Remainder. That's my call

The only instrument I ever mastered was a comb.
And I haven't had to carry one of those for years.

Steve, you can repurpose your comb and gain a career in Michigan local politics. Here's a county administrator, using his to impersonate a State official he's unhappy with.
