RE: [Harp-L] Significant others - no harp

The trick for me and I'm no expert by any means! is to allocate certain times, schedule time where it's all about her but don't and I repeat don't let her know this is what you're doing cause they like spontaneity.  She probably doesn't hate the music she just hates that the music takes you away from her.  It's pretty hard to be a musician especially with the blues cause you really don't do it for the money.  I work full time and when I get home the phone is ringing the guys from the band want to come over or were rehearsing or gigging.  with all that when you get some alone time with her, it's kind of understandable that she doesn't want to hear about harp or blues.   It's awesome what a little quality time can do.  It's either that or you can grab your amp and harps and get out cause she'll end up killing you while you sleep.   I woke up one night and saw her right over my face with a look on her face that made me gulp.  ever since then I've been a little more attentive to her needs.

PS. she hates when the guys call me Shrimp or leave messages on the phone for Shrimp Daddy. Can you believe that!!!

Subject: [Harp-L] Significant others - no harp

Just wondering how you all get along with your significant other. Does your significant other do some of the following:

Turn down the volume when it is at a reasonable level.
Turn the stereo off on you when you got for a leak.
Ask you: oh pleeeeaaaase, no music tonight.
Ask you: can you change the music.

These things kind of grate on my nerves after a while. Seems to me the effect is additive, the longer it goes on, the more annoyed you get.

Is there any help for this?
