For those who didn't live through the 80's with bands like Flock of Seagulls and Devo and aren't familiar with what a "keytar" is, it's a keyboard or synthesizer worn around the neck and shoulders similar to a guitar. The word “keytar” is a portmanteau (no, not a large suitcase but a word formed by blending together two other words!) of “keyboard” and “guitar”. "Keytars" allow players a greater range of movement compared to conventional keyboards which are placed on stands and restrict the player to basically standing in one spot on a stage. Anyone who's been to a rock concert has witnessed guitarists and singers wander around freely while the poor drummer and keyboard players stay stoically in one place but if the keyboardist had a "keytar" they could rock out at the edge of the stage with the best of 'em and be able to have lots of adoring fans grab at their shoes, too!
Regardless of what it is, it has become Amanda's new obsession and she really wants, wants, wants, please, please, please, I won't ask you for anything else wants one. That sort of want. It is a want of great proportions, it is a want of great desires, it is a want that would make her really, really happy, and it is a want that shall probably remain unfulfilled as I've looked at "keytars" on eBay and they are way out of my price range right now no matter how many paid posts I write (like the one below this one on an alternative for drug rehab)!
Still, hope springs eternal in the heart of a 15-year old wanna-be-keytar-artist so much so that she drew her first album cover complete with the name of her new band, Kick the Bucket, though she has no album title yet -
So, anyone got an old "keytar" hanging out in their closet gathering dust from the 80's that they don't want anymore and would be willing to sell cheap? And I do mean cheap! Either that or maybe we could trade for some original Art-Munkey drawings??
