Perhaps it's because they only have to listen once a week - she gets it 24/7 !!!<br />
... ba<x>sed on a guy I shared with once who played really well - but only played one tune that was a hit at the time. Believe me that tune 15 times a day gets annoying really quickly
My wife was the same way .... turned out, she didn't love me.
you cant please everybody
She crazy! If you play guitar, then I love you already :D
my hub is the same---he told me when we first got together--(he doesn't remember it) that he was jealous cuz I played----then his brother picked it up and became pro; my oldest son is pro, and my youngest son has played a few gigs. My dad was a trumpet pla<x>yer in a big band in the 50s. my mom sang on stage in winter/summer stock. Ya, he's just jealous---maybe she is too.
She probably is jelous of it because it takes time and energy away from her. I feel the same way about my bfs dog. He always wants to cuddle with the dog instead of me. Its not that I dont like the dog, I just dont like him putting all his attention into it when I'm around. I get jelous!! Petty I know. Keep playing and talk to her about it. If she loves you she'll get over it because it makes you happy.
Do you play it all the time when you're with her? Maybe she feels like you love your guitar more than her. I mean, if I wanted to spend time w/ my bf I'd want his undivided attention.
She might find it annoying if you play it a lot... try toning it down a little... she will miss and appreciate the music you play :)
If you play the guitar from where it's meant, shouldn't one so close to you forever enjoys those sounds that are your soul ? I was once stuck in a similar situation except I was only a year into playing so you could imagine my technical proficiency was sparse and we'll my song list didn't even make 5. But I knew that the passion was in me, so once my partner and I began to argue about my almost incessant practice and scale runs and blah blah I felt that something was wrong. Long story short find other places to practice and separate her from your guitar playing and with time maybe ask why and even get her to critique songs or ideas
