    In the tub would be fun, but would need to learn Rubber Ducky first Tiny Tim.jpg

    I like playing out on my backyard patio, near my koi pond/waterfall. A close second is in the car, while waiting in line for a ferry to Fantasy Island, or on the ferry while underway.

    Ask NOT what your country can do for Uke...ask what Uke can do for your country.

    My faves are a very comfy chair in our media room, (no chairs in the music room) and in our bed. My 2nd fave is onstage with our band, the Ladies of Uke.

    I will just wake this old slumbering thread...

    It seems to focus a lot on scenic or comfy places til play the ukulele, more than musically optimal places.
    Since this thread was started, I got myself a beanbag chair that I play in. Quite comfy in some ways. Definately better than any chairs with armrests, and when home-recording it lovers the reverbartion time a bit.
    However, I doubt that it is a healthy position to play in. Furthermore it is definately not a good position for singing. I don't have a mic stand that will position my USB mic above me, so I have to lean forward to get near the mic - which leaves me all curled up so deap breaths are hard.

    I am in the process of finding a new chair/stool. Is there any difference between optimal chairs for guitar and ukulele?

    With regard to seating arrangement, I sit on my wooden stool, with a USB mic in front of me, trapped in a drawer to hold it in position.

    My stool is one of those kitchen bar type things, with a swiveling top, that I cut about six inches off the legs.

    I record in my bedroom, as there is a distinct lack of space where I live, laptop on top of my chest of drawers, mic trapped in a drawer, & me sat in front of it, playing into it, sat on my stool.

    My kitchen table looking out on to the back yard. On the steps of my back deck. On the dock on a lake at a friends cottage. It appears I like scenery.

    I have a small music room where I read/study and mess with my instruments, but I usually play in the music room annex (bedroom). I play most of my wind instruments strolling hither and yon unless I'm using music. I think it helps with breathing and memory. Annex II (master bathroom) has good acoustics, and I can lean against the counter top. I sit with my banjos and my tuba.

    I usta play my small flutes and tin whistles in the park too, but I don't ride my bike much any more.
