WOW: Guitar Playing = Good for You

Here I always thought I've gotten a bit larger the last 10+ years because I've gotten older and generally lazier, maybe it's just because I don't play in a band anymore:

It doesn't just burn calories, it's also a great way to stave off degenerative diseases like Parkinson's and Alzheimer's. Something about exercising your neurons. I'll check later if I can find the article.

Re: WOW: Guitar Playing = Good for You

You'll burn about 80 calories just standing around anyways, so really you're only burning a net of about 120 calories by playing guitar according to that measurement...

Some people burn a lot more than that playing guitar. Think Angus Young!
