Show us where you play guitar.

Post by The Chad on Thu Sep 12, 2013 12:49 pm

Where do you play your geetars?  In your garage, bedroom, basement, man cave, where?  Show us!  Oh, and include your guitar(s) in the photo. 

I'll get pics of my new man cave tonight, love the thing.

Bloody show off!

That said, we're currently in the process of finishing off the ceilings in the basement (8 years living with open floor joists, duct work, and wiring!) My current "music room" is cramped as hell. Here are some old pix. I've added quite a few since...31 now...This space looks luxurious by comparison Rolling Eyes :




I can't bloody move right now!
All available space is jammed full as well as the floor. My little PA amp is on the shelf in the upper right corner (since replaced by another one) the mic and stand is not seen either, and is just to the right of that gorgeous red Vantage Avenger AV325. Also not seen is a full sized keyboard digital piano plus 2 keyboards, my main 100 watt Roland amp, floor monitor, as well as the PA speakers on stands in the corners. All in all it can be a challenge to make a racket without making a, um, racket. Feedback is not your friend! 

The good news however, is that she-who-must-be-obeyed has decreed that this room will become a bedroom...and that I can soon take over the newly renovated main rec/family room in the basement, complete with washroom and fireplace for those chilly winter nights! Laughing

That will be glorious! BUT...she hates the cases ("they're ugly") and wants me to hang the bloody guitars on the wall! Completely ignoring the fact of course that I still have to store the cases somewhere! There's no way in Hades that I'm hanging my '64 ES330 to the elements, nor any acoustics for that matter. Even the hard bodies are in danger, so I'd rather they all stay in cases or bags until I'm actually playing them out on rotation.

If you display yer stuff, what do you do with yer cases??

Barry, you're post made me laugh in an all too knowing way, my "she-who-must-be-obeyed" said the same thing!  I have my cases in the furnace room.  And that's only temporary since we just moved in.  And nice area Barry, sounds like you have all you need in there. 

Here's my new man cave (not showing off, just sharing with people who will actually care)!  Not finished yet, need to finish my trim around the floor.  Also need to do something with the holes left from the former owner.  Anyhow, here she is!

Going down the stairs into the cave and a look around. 






















So much fun, I feel so blessed I'm overwhelmed.  I don't use the bar as "a bar", I use it as a guitar work area.  It does the job well for the meantime.  Before I used part of a tiny bedroom. 

Whether you have your ideal jam room or not, please post!

Very kewl Chad. ('specially the bar!)
I'm thinking of adding an area carpet of some kind to soften the echo off the tile floor. The old room has laminate. Are you experiencing any harshness in the sound at all from the tile?

Well I don't need reverb down there, that's for sure.  Laughing

Already kicking around the carpet idea (no pun intended), mainly to dampen the sound reflection and to warm my feet!  The sound is pretty good as is, just too reverby.  A nice large manly rug will look, feel, and sound great.  I'm thinking 70's shag rug?  afro Actually I'm thinking a darker color cool pattern rug of some sort.

Very nice music rooms and studio/man caves. Well I had to keep the wife Happy so I had to convert the wood working shop outside into my man cave. It is functional but always a work in progress. I need to make shelves for all the cases and more wall hangars for the walls etc but it works for now.






Always a work in progress, got AC in but still need ceiling and lower half of walls etc. Will get it finished one day if egas allows it.

for now the cases are leaning up against the wall behind me from where I got this shot.More guitars above the workbench on wall to right and also some cases on the ceiling cross beams for now.Need to put in ceiling and new lighting and finish bottom of the walls and put in another row of hangars on the bottom half and move the racks to the other wall behind me in this shot.

My gear is all stacked away; guitars in one corner of the shed, and amps/ancillary gear in another... besides, you've all seen pix of my shed/workshop/rehearsal space....

 No, I'm sorry - just posting a pic of your local music store is just not acceptable... WinkLaughing

Surprised!  Love it Arthur!  A proper jam area full of geetars! 
The reactions from Punky and Grogg were great, I agree!  lol! 


I keep my cases in the furnace room adjacent to the cave.  My Wife would like them out of sight entirely, but not gonna happen.

Thanks for the comments. It still has a long way to go but most essentials are there now with AC/Heat , fridge for those cold drinks etc, and always room to be made for more gear. It makes a good dog house for me to stay in as well every time a new guitar does not make it past the wife..... lol

Seeing your table Chad, I was always tinkering with the idea of finishing a table in sunburst or stain it in an Orange/Nuclear Burst
Smile 
My place is small I don't have a choice. Housing up here is still ridiculously high-priced with too many people in dept with risky mortgages they might not be able to pay back and banks that need to be bailed one after another. We're robbed, f**d and fooled. Renters are taxed to the max. The bubble is too big and politicians aim to let the air out in 30 years or so instead of letting it burst, get it over with. Kicking the can, extend and pretend. Everybody needs to be corrupted. So much for todays neo liberalism.

Serious "Man cave" envy going on here I'm afraid, you guys across the pond seem to have the luxury of space and that all important basement!!!!. I stayed in Laval, Montreal for a while and was so impressed with those under house basement/dens. These days my guys stand upright in gig bags in MY wardrobe, between jeans, tshirts and the like with the odd one scattered around the house.......where once was a small studio now live shoe boxes, wardrobes and bloody handbags......Don\'t Know

Thanks! Although uplifting I still cry. People are still paralysed by the mainstream media propaganda outings. Even while internet made it possible to learn so much more if you use it in a proper way. This will define future. If I may, let me introduce you to one of my heroes, Dr John, in his lalest outing where he hints to Salif 'keitas's Mandjou, Kane kassie  'don't cry'  I recognised it immediately. Still there's a message, not surprisingly from New Orleans that was flooded by ignorance!
