    I've been playing more in the bathroom (not when I'm using it), the acoustics just sound better to me there more than the living room

    Right in front of my Linux desktop computer (so I display PDFs on a big monitor.)

    Over the last couple of months things have changed at my house. My intention with the ukulele was to keep it simple. All I needed was a ukulele. I could put my music on my knee and play it. But times changed, and I accumulated three amps, a microphone stand and a microphone, three music stands, a couple of effects pedals, a half dozen cables, a pile of music, a kindle, I built a cigar box ukulele, and I had no where to set it all up and play with it. My wife does not want our home styled in modern ukulele. So everything was packed away in a closet when I wasn't playing with it and it took too much work to get it out. But we remodeled a room in our basement in a wine cellar theme, with a bar and and with a large wine rack, and off in one corner I now have a space dedicated to ukulele. And while I do not have a lot of ukuleles to fill it, I do now have a stage of sorts to play on. I have all my stuff set up, and I don't have to take it down. So that is nice. I can go down there and just plug in if I want. But after all that work, I still find myself most often on the front porch, or in the park. I think though that when it gets cold I will be down there a lot more. I'm busking a bit, and playing more and more gigs, so it is good that I can experiment with my sound system. I do think it is funny that I always swore that I would never have a "ukulele room" and now I do.

    My favorite place to play is on my screened patio, but it's too hot in summer, except sometimes late at night. The rest of the time it's usually right here in front of my computer, for no other reason than that the chair is my most comfortable one (it's old and falling apart cosmetically, but hey....)

    Anywhere I happen to land I can usually grab an ukulele and start playing it in my house. My ukes are terrible at posing though....alas,

    In my humidified study, where I can keep a half dozen on the wall, handy at all times and have my computer in front of me.

    I should say that's my most frequent place to play. My favorite is down on the beach typically with my fluke in hand.

    Wow, last night I went through all the rooms in our house playing the ukulele and what a revelation! Everyone should do that. From showers, to a very large reflective living room, from my office to a well dampened
    library, amazing. Even played out on the backyard porch. Very interesting.

    Kind of like singing in the shower. It always sounds so good.
