A brief background: Generally, I have a very eclectic taste in music (I mean, Classical, Jazz, Folk, Epic Power Metal, etc - basically everything except some pop).
However, for as long as I can remember, I have always always loved bluegrass pickin’ and tunes. I’ve played guitar since I was 18, but for some reason, only recently have I really (finally - maybe it’s cause there are so many resources on the internet for learning…) decided to commit and learn to flatpick the tunes I always loved.
To my wife though -who I must say is the most wonderful woman in the world- bluegrass is unfortunately mostly “hill billy” music. I tried to explain a little better about it’s roots and history. She seemed interested - but also somewhat, “huh…that’s nice dear.” I wouldn’t say she hates it (She listens to AKUS a bit), just Watson, Rice…etc… just not really for her.
So there inlies a serious impediment for practicing and playing. It’s a funny dilemma cause it’s not something that would really ever come between us - but too bad, cause I would’ve loved to play and sing along with her. We live in Oregon - so I wouldn’t say Bluegrass has as many fans as, for instance, Austin Texas - where we may move someday. Maybe if we ever did move there, she’d get more into it.
Anyone else run into this rather silly problem?
