I've been relegated to the garage for my practicing (family men will understand). I really don't mind it, it's become a kind of tawdry home for me. My only complaint is the acoustics. I find that I have to lower the peg position on my bass to hear myself when playing pizz. I assume that's because the sound dissipates too much before getting a bounce off the concrete floor. I'm thinking of building a small raised platform so I can hear better. Has anyone done this?
