    Piano and classical/flamenco guitar were my instruments back when I studied music..

    Guitar is nice, portable, and a great way of meeting girls.. but Piano is an absolute knockout.

    Any guy can strum a bit on guitar, sit in a park and impress their mates/girls.. but if you take a girl to play piano, then its something else.

    At uni, 3rd/4th date - take the girl up to the music practice studio late at night. Was in a very quiet building, that only arts students usually had the key card to get into (artaud building for you brunel students), the lights were always off, and it was a bit creeping taking her up a tiny staircase and through dark corridors.. But then you arrive, switch on the lights and you see a huge practise room with many pianos, recording stuff, percussion and all sorts of instruments.. Spend a few hours just messing about on the different musical instruments, showing off to her a litt (but not to much that it looks forced)... only did it twice, but both times it just killed it as an unusual date.

    It's the BBC so any list they make will be as PC as possible.
