To get girls :D
I picked up the guitar because I wanted to be more creative (my brother does really well in sketches, drawings, paintings, graphics design and I suck at drawing/painting but do okay in graphic design). So, what the hell? I took it up, and I never looked back once. And as for girls and the cool factor, I regard them as a plus! :)

I love guitar for as many of those reasons as I can get! Of course, impressing the girls with it seems rather difficult unless you're in a band that plays music that girls would be interested in. So mostly I guess that I play for myself and my own amusement as well as a creative outlet.

Because my dad showed me a video of the expo '92 'Guitar Legends' show in Seville, after seing that I had to have lessons. Hell I even used to run around the playground making guitar noises. But nowadays i'd put it down to the need for creativity, expression and some form of escapism. I can really lose myself and forget everything when i play guitar, and i couldn't live without it.

As for girls, i'd agree with you GunKungFu. I think its a shambles that most girls would rather see a guy get on stage and talk over a backing track, whilst waving his arms around in the air agressively and wearing a tacky piece of chrome around his neck, before hopping into his 'Benz complete with rims the size of small planets.
