So I got some really great comments from you about my practice room. Hey, I don't have any sage. Do you think I could burn pine needles? Anyway, the guest room has been improved as it is the best location in the house. First I cleaned it. Moved some furniture around a little. I have two chairs to play guitar - my foot rest is sensibly placed. I moved some junk out of there, and now my guitars are on stands where they are easily accessible. I found a really cool little basket-thingie to hold my guitar books and music. Music stand readily available. The amp is set up by one chair - all I have to do is sit down and plug in. I can still sit at the piano, and the room feels better. I can even have guests without having to do anything !! Hell, I might even start sleeping in this room. I think I have a spot for the mic stand, and there is a great spot for my laptop to sit while I tune in to lessons. The only thing I haven't figured out yet is where to put the camera when I want to video. But I am getting there, and am actually anxious to go there to play. I won't have to drag anything around..... it is all there. I still have one guitar in the living room. I take breaks from working and pick it up to goof off and de-stress. So I think I am good. Yes, I will try playing on my back deck. Probably scare my wildlife away !!! No headphones for Victor - TV in the living room and he is a television junkie. So this should work. Moving and adding on are not viable options. Re-finishing the basement is tho, and that would be a great place to set everything up. So I think I will put that on my radar and the next time I have $15,000 I can't figure out what to do with, I will just get right on that !! Thanks for the comments !!
