Hahaha - couldn't resist.

The room this was recorded in was the dining room as used by the previous owners.  It was a GHASTLY GREEN.   Really.... what WERE they thinking...   Anyway - that's all gonna change....   All ready for redecoration - curtains out, furnishings out, carpet etc removed..  bare (puke-green, ughhh, I feel sick) walls.... (the video color rendering does not do it justice at all - it is not a room you want to spend any time in...)

There's one heck of a reverb in it right now....   I had to do this.... on-the-spot, unplanned and just for fun...  a mix of Turkey in the straw, Ode to Joy and finally Zip-a-dee-doo-dah which I kind of made up as I went along..... as I say - just couldn't resist....   My sincere apologies in advance.... roflroflrofl   As for my singing - well - not to worry - I'm not planning on giving up my day job.

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh - guntohead.JPG

With violins there is no fretting over the music.

It's so much fun to play in a room with a lot of echo. 🙂

I used to play for hours in cathedrals, concert halls when I could get in there by myself. True that the beauty can be misleading at times. 🙂

@BillyG You can never have too much reverb. Now you have me wandering around my house looking for better places. I am going to try my husband's shop. Cement floors, hard walls, pretty empty right now.... Our quonset on the farm is also pretty good (but not handy)

Husband's shop sounds like the perfect place. LOL
Will he be there? Does he play anything?

I love playing in a room like that, makes it sound like I play awesome for a moment, haha. 

Hmmm... Maybe I need to empty out a room....

Really nice sounding room @BillyG.   It would be nice to be able to have a room just for playing music.

I agree with a few others here, it is nice to be lucky enough to have a large empty room to play in. Most normal rooms fill up with stuff pretty quick! I did a practice session in the workshop/garage and it was indeed pretty good sound. I had hammering and sawing as accompaniment (husband does not play anything, except those instruments. He can however be heard in a few recordings I have sent to Fiddlerman as he hammers things while I try to record). On a related note, I have learned to play The Merry Blacksmith. He also forges, which entails very musical loud hammering.smile

@intrepidgirl Oh, I love The Merry Blacksmith 😀 Ooo... If you could get him to hammer in the forge to be the "drummer" for a recording of "The Merry Blacksmith" it would be awesome 😀

Right next to my house, I have an old small rectangular storehouse, which used to be in the old times something like a barn, it has a triangular roof, the internal dimensions of the construction are 13m long, width 6.5m, height 4.70m, total approximately 84.5 square meters. Walls are made of stone, windows are placed high on the walls, no dividing walls inside, just one very large room and is empty, except for a few old furniture that I keep in a corner and wood for the fireplace, no curtains of course, so almost nothing absorbs the sound.

I have always played music in my living room and there was no need to look for some other place, because my wife enjoyed my violin's sound.serenade These days after reading the above posts, I went there 4-5 times with my violin, stood in the middle and when I started playing I found out that sound was more pleasant because of the reverberation and louder, I have the feeling that the whole place works also like a big speaker so it's time to buy one more music stand to put it in there permanently, because from now on I will be playing more often in my small storehouse, I think I will name it "My Private Concert Hall". cool
