so lets say i'm an apple enthusiast. i just love eating apples and everything about them, sliced apples, apple pie, apple sauce, apple juice, apple on the cob, candied apples, apple flavored lube, etc. because i like apples, would it sound stupid if i were to say that oranges suck because they are difficult to eat? you know, the skin is inedible, seeds are a bitch to remove, you get orange gunk in your fingernails when trying to peel them.
a little silly right?
okay now lets say i'm a ukulele enthusiast. does that make guitars "icky"? you know, too many strings, too big, steel strings are hurty on my delicate string cheese fingers, etc. i've seen it here and there in ukulele forums but i just find it ridiculous when people go all anti-guitar when they pick up the uke. is that really necessary? they are different instruments and both have their good and bad points. the mutual bad points being they are both douchebag magnets. see case in point.
so anyway, where is the love for our 6 stringed cousin? they are fun to play too, aren't they? why is it that a uker who picks up a guitar is seen as "going to the dark side"?
i'm going to go strum my baritone zither now and pout. pout out loud!
