My wife gets tired of 'hearing the same thing again and again', but
really only while I'm learning a tune. And I can see her getting
at scale practice (especially over the seemingly perpetual 12 bar bluesI

I don't see what the problem is with some folks partners. There SHOULD

I suppose the crux of this post is that your partners won't always like
music (cept when you play for them and all their friends, where they thenwhen
like to show you off), but if you can find a time to practice, such as

Who'd have thought that guitar is more than just getting around the fret

commitments, in order to find time to play it in the first place.
