I also play guitar and am learning tango. Why guitar? Because when I was 5 years old I did the most rock thing and smashed my guitar. It was ten years before I got my hands on another, but when I finally did I found it to be one of the most rewarding ways of expressing myself. I have a broad eclectic taste in the music I listen to and play, but do listen to a lot of progressive metal for the way the guitar's range as an instrument is really shown off. Tango? Well, I did a play in high school where I needed to know the dance. I would watch couples in the park for inspiration and realized I wanted to dance like that with someone.
