I see a lot of nice pianos, but I don't see everyone sitting at their pianos. . . .

I'll get my own pic posted tomorrow. Don't worry; you won't be able to see a thing! \:D

I'm shopping for a new one. When I buy one I like, you can see *that* one. This one's worn out. And I'm vain.

I had some thoughts of letting Jerry Luke pose with the Chickering which he can claim is his piano instead of that keyboard, if I can claim his face. See, we'll be twins and win-win. That is if he'll get rid of that silly riding hat.

Hey - that silly hat may save his life someday. I wear one when I ride too.

Hi, Cindy:

I wanted an avatar that wasn't someone else's; JimBob uses Mona Lisa, too, and posts over on the piano forum. Didn't want to look like I was poaching. And Mookie is kinda cute, too.

Here's my area. It's great because I have 28 foot ceilings with my beautiful Steinway B. Great sound! Thanks for the help Apple!

That's a spectacular space, W. I envy you those cavernous ceilings. I particularly like the flowing form of the sofa and the way you've mixed the two forms of dining chairs. Very nice!

most computers come with 'Paint' ... if I right click on a photo save it to my desktop then right click it, chose edit, and Paint opens. Then I chose Image at the top.. go to skew and put the percentage at 30% for both directions and then save it again.

Hi Guys,
Love some of your practice spaces and pianos. Here's my newly set up space and Kawai GS30. I have been so inspired by the great postings and pictures on this forum, thanks :-)

Thanks, all, for the kind comments. I have always loved rosewood pianos too. I was lucky to get a piano I love, and with that finish too.

Plays, very nice picture.

BTW, do I qualify for the benediction? My grandmother was a Lee from VA (thus my name).

CG- Pictures can be deceiving. I'm 5'6", 133 lbs. Not exactly an imposing figure. School kids STILL beat me up for my lunch money. (Ok, I'm kidding about that part, but the rest is true!) \:\)

Oh, and chicks (no pun intended) dig the riding hat. So far I've been called dead sexy, and dashing. \:D

Absolutely! My brother went to school with R.E. Lee V -- are you from that family? I was more outspoken when I was younger, and when my brother introduced me to Bob Lee I brazenly said to him "that's a really tough name to live up to."

BTW, I have an long string of ancestors from Massachussets.

Sorry, I'm quoting myself! Here's how to post pictures! Keep 'em coming! \:\)

The only trouble is, the photos tend to be huge, so you might want to resize it *before* uploading. (Something like 640 X 480 as suggested by mxs)

Wow, I sound like a pro, and I only just figured this out yesterday! \:\) [/b]

"My space needs help. It's uninspiring."

Any space with a beautiful grand, *and* a classical guitar, is by it's very nature inspiring! And what is that mini-piano thing? Is it a little table? Very charming!

I assume it was a classical guitar. Do you play? What do you do about fingernails?

I agree with ShiroKuro. I liked it. It's cozy without being crowded. I like the lines of the modern furniture but in that sloped-walled cottage setting. I like the cabinets under the windows. And I like the low lighting for cozy evenings at home, but my only suggestion would be to add recessed lighting that is separately controllable so that you can dramatically boost the lighting just when wanted and sort of spotlight elements of the room, giving the room a definition of depth. But aside from that one thought, I quite like it. It looks like an artist's loft. Which would be my goal.

That reminds me, we haven't seen Zongora in a very long time with his wonderful music room and great collection of photographs... \:\(
