I've been thinking about my relationship with my girlfriend and my guitar... hehe, she (my girl) is always saying me that I spend more time with my JEM than with she... and that's true... In fact I think I spend almost the double time with my guitar so sometimes she is sad and angry about this situation. I'm terribly sorry but I love music and I work in music so I NEED to play almost all day, and I don't know how to explain it to my girlfriend...

some got the same problem?? how can you do a normal life with girlfriend and guitar ?? Do you think I'm crazy ??? (probably yes laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif)



Music is your job now, right? Then playing guitar is just the same as if you went into work for eight hours. wink.gif

When you do spend time with her just make her feel really special and make sure she knows that when you're with her, you're 100% with her, but when you're playing your guitar, you need your space since it is now your profession and she needs to understand/respect that. Best solution I have for you, and it's not a very good one tongue.gif

With all my girlfriends in the past, I've never had any trouble balancing them with guitar practise. I used to go out most evenings anyway so that was always perfect time to be spent with them. Then a few times during the day just don't play as much. It isn't really that hard.

A girlfriend I had a couple of years ago did break up with me because I used to play guitar more than I was with her. With my last girlfriend I didn't have any problems , but she always told to me to learn tropical music , here are a couple of examples of what she wanted me to learn:

Fonseca

Carlos Vives


Fanny Lu

This kind of music is the most popular in the Discos here in Bogota. So.....

I had one girlfriend who wanted me to write her song, so as a joke, I tuned my guitar to B Standard (i think you can see where this is going), and just played some really fast galloping death metal riffs laugh.gif

Awesome man , it would be great if we could hear that song.

I did write a song for my ex girlfriend, and when she heard it she told me she didn't want any songs from hell , that she wanted I really nice tropical song (view my last post).

I'll usually play my classical guitar for the ladies...but every once in while I can't help but play some really heavy riff or shreddy solo. It's actually impressed a few, surprisingly ohmy.gif

Haha!

You caught it, Yes that could be it! laugh.gif

She didnt have much of a sense of humour, Thing was though, she once asked me to play a slow solo, so i did some Blind Guardian/ Rhapsody of Fire type stuff, and she is like "That is just weird"

No pleasing her i tell ya!

Ive got the same problem here, she keeps callin me up on the phone while im playing and seems to talk forever... I explained everything to her and she is a little more understanding, but she doesnt understand all the time...



this can be solved by putting your phone on loud speakers so you can still hear her and go "mm hmm" at the appropriate moments, coz she doesnt really want u to talk, she just want u to listen
