    they were happy when they thought i was playin the guitar as a hobby ..but freaked out when i told them that i wanted to be musician...ahhahah...well they are comin to terms with it...and im doin somethin else along with my music studies that s related ...so guess they are cool now..
    i think ive started annoying my neighbours more coz i normally get time to practice and plug in only abt 11pm..and it goes on till abt 2..so ..ahh well..

    My mom loves to hear me play at full volume(that's on a 80W amp), she's always been supportive of me:) I guess that answers the question. As to my dad, he doesnt mind as long it doesnt affect my studies.

    death_metal_fan oh goody, it's a woody!

    My parents were incredibly happy, especially coz my mum's brother is a flamenco guitar player (damn talented) and they were happy to have another musician in the family.

    wen i started it was option 3....now it moved doen to option 4.

    they totally freaked out wen i was called to play guitar at a nightclub..they refused and i missed the chance...now they r pretty ok with me teaching guitar to others..

    i bought my guitar wid my very first salary....so, my dad completely freaked out. i remeber him saying "i dont believe this guy got a empty box kinda thing from his first salary....dats totally insane " in marathi....

    my dad still looks unhappy coz its been five months and he thinks i shud be a gr8 guitarist by now....lol...but i think he is more happy coz i got it frm my own money.

    mom is pretty ok....sometimes gets annoyed when all i do is guitar practising.

    my sis says dat i suck when i play guitars.....lol. my little bro is always excited and interested but cant tell coz he walks out of the room sometimes when i pick up the guitars.....lol.
