Music rooms...

Post by corsair on Tue Oct 09, 2018 7:49 pm

I know everyone has a room, or space where they do the music thing; so let's see them!! I'll start...



the noisy wall... only 3 amps miked up; they're sitting on the PA bins just for height!



...keyboards - since fixed - had the display go doggo on me! - and mixer, computer and monitor amp. Small blue box is an A/B box for the guitar amps...



IDK condensor mike (Very good microphone!!) and TC Helicon perform V to process what I laughingly call "vocals"... (you still can't polish a turd, eh!!)



Spectrum ST Telecaster, lap steel and acoustic guitar, currently everything is in E♭. The monitors get used a bit, though I do most stuff with headphones these days...




... and as a bonus, we get visitors! Baby brown tree snakes underneath the house. (It's a raised house, with the music room being on the ground floor...)

Real nice Johnny, lots of room to spread out eh?
You could do a band setup in there very easily too.
Anyone locally you could hook up with to raise a little noise? Band

Not really, Barry; there's an awful lot of Australian country music played here, which is trite and just plain awful; there must be rock covers bands out there, but if I'm honest, I don't have the energy to go looking!

Wouldn't mind a visit to that jam space. Very Happy I gotta stop playing long enough to clean my room for pictures.

I would take some new pix, but the only thing that would change would be the guitars out on rotation, so, here are a few that I've posted here somewhere before . . .





There is a ceiling high rack to the right, just out of range of this pic, which holds another 7 guitars in hard cases for a current total of 36.

Ooooh... nice kit!! Does grandad need his pipe and slippers to go with the chair?? Laughing How can you sing sittin' down, man - I need to be standing?!

I should never have sold my old Roland Cube; love the super cleans the thing had, and have a soft spot for Yorkville PA gear; my first PAs were Yorkvilles and were mega!

Not so much the slippers n pipe as the brandy and/or wine! Razz

I do stand up on the few occasions when I sing these days. But my lead singer energy level has become pretty tame since the stroke though and it's mostly ballads or moderate pop rock, nothing like the Don Henley or Billy Joel levels I used to do. I got into the habit of not projecting like I used to, for  fear of triggering another episode. Totally irrational, but it's buggered up my old confidence level.

Sitting down does help with the left hand positioning for the stuff that isn't cowboy chords. . . bloody arthritis has made the fingers stiff and slow and the base of the thumb makes it painful to do barre chords without some extra stability and leverage.

We're both lucky buggers to have what we have though eh?
Can't play like I used to but that ain't gonna stop my love for playing!

I hear that! Yeah; lucky indeed.... I have dodgy shoulders and knees which I've gotta be a bit careful with but otherwise I can manage most stuff I used to do; I was never that much of a showman!! I always fancied doing Ritchie stuff, but you need talent, chops and balls to do what he used to do, eh: I have neither that sort of talent, nor anything like his chops... even in my pomp!! :-D
I can certainly understand not wanting to stroke out again, Barry; I'd be taking it VERY carefully indeed... irrational of not!!

Straightened up the jam room a bit, figured I should send a pic. Smile

Nice and airy there, Warrn... is it a dedicated music space or do you share it?

Some of the instruments there belong to my housemates, but I'm the primary source of noise in the room. Working on getting a new band together. Very Happy

My landlady called it the "great room" and there is a living room at the other end of the house, haha. But you could call it a living room if you wanted. There is a nice couch!

If it has Westones in it, of course it would be a "great room". Razz
