    Man..that’s a tough put down. That person must have been miserable in their own life.

    Sounds like a great musical experience at a young age. That kind of stuff sticks with us.

    She gave me a Butterscotch Blonde Squier Jazzmaster a few years ago. She told me “this had better be the only blonde you ever get your hands on!”

    Actually, guitars can and will let you down.

    The difference is, you can generally fix a guitar in about 15 minutes with the right screwdriver.

    I'm right with everything you said. MY wife has never discouraged my playing. She more toward dance, but theres also common ground. Santana, Buddy Guy, Motown. Some different musical taste. Tell me though - How'd you get the kids to go? Well one left, but the grandkids came.........Life is good.

    my family were and still are MASSIVE country music lovers. but dig this: to them, country music was also Elvis, Chuck Berry, the Beatles, a bunch of the Rolling Stones, any Black Gospel musicians and Southern Gospel you can think of. they just didn't give a hoot for boundaries. they loved music that made them feel good.

    It is all just music after all. All different genres have the power to inspire

    We all (some of us at least) set a bar. You set a legitimate bar, and she didn’t clear it. I prefer the Wolowitz crazy/hot graph intersection myself.

    In her defense, she might have been with other players in the past, that unlike you, were really horrible and once she heard you, the smirk would be replaced by a come hither look?

    Your family sounds like they would be a hell of a lot of fun.

    As long as you aren’t in a band together that’s probably ok. ;)

    My friend was a bass player in a husband/wife band. He said it was an awful experience.

    Once (if) the couple splits up, so does the band. It’s usually the first on the list of “How NOT to start a band!”

    It even has a name, “The Yoko rule!”

    Convinced them to stay home till college was paid off. Then let them stay till they had enough for a down payment on a house. Then kicked them out of the nest.

    I hate the empty nest myself. My youngest daughter was my movie, music, and going out to eat buddy. My other two were great company too, but my youngest and I had something special. We all still do, of course..just referring to when they lived with me. I miss their company very much.
