As you collect all these new guitars, you need to get with the program and give them a suitable home...lol Example below!

Wow! You got more guitars than many guitar shops!

I met a police officer, no I was not arrested, in Buffalo NY that collects guitars. He had 36 guitars!

A luthier friend of mine who owned a guitar shop has 50 guitars.

It must be very time consuming keeping them in tune and playable.

Think about the time and cost just to put new strings on them if you do it all at once.

My plan is to mount 2 horizontal furring strips to hold the hangers, paint the whole wall flat black, and hang them against the flat black wall. I only have 10. (Now...)

My plan is to keep my guitars in the hard case and to release the string tension some.

One Anderson sets beside me 24/7.

Ten guitars are really not a lot of guitars to own, to begin with. I have seven or eight here. Two or three get played and the rest set in the case 98% of the time. But...when I want a Telecaster I want a Telecaster.

I have 3 guitars. One electric for gigging, another similar one for a backup, and an archtop acoustic/electric for when I don't want to plug a guitar in to practice or learn a new song.

Two tenor saxophones.

Two no longer in production wind controllers.

And so on.

I am not a collector. The way I see it, there is wrong with collectors or collections, it's just not for me.

I gig with my instruments, they are simply tools to get the music I want to produce from me to the audience.

Since I make my living doing music and nothing but music, each new purchase means a cut in pay. If it leads to more pay in the future, it's an investment, if it is just to look pretty and doesn't pay for itself, it is income money lost.

By the time I'm done with an instrument, it's usually quite worn. When I buy a new one, I sell the old if it is worth the trouble, if not, I just donate it to a music student. I've given away a few guitars and saxes in my time on the planet. I admit, it's a selfish act, as it makes me feel good to help a young musician.

Now PianoBilly, I see one thing wrong with that 'wall of sound' you posted. There are no saxophones hanging on the wall. That's "speciesistic" if you ask me laugh

I have a number of guitars but I use them all. Each has a unique sound. I am a bottom feeder so none of my guitars are very expensive, regardless of what my wife says!

I have a tele, strat, electric and acoustic 12 strings, two jazz boxes (one with wound strings and the other flat wound strings), a fretless bass, a freted P-bass, a nylon string, and a couple of acoustics. If you have been listening to my music for some time you have heard all of these guitars.

IMHO any instrument is meant to be played and not just collected. YMMV

Yeah, I only have 9 guitars and it's time consuming just keeping the strings relatively fresh! Sure, 90% of that time is spent trying to re-string the one with the Floyd Rose, but still...

Nothing wrong here. Looks just like my living room.

Nah, just a bad case of GAS - Guitar Acquisition Syndrome.

This video was posted on January 23, 2015 to the Keyboard Instrument Chops and Gear YouTube Channel.

Band-in-a-Box® File Associations

Ear Training Games in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

October 1, 2021 is National Kids Music Day!

Head to the Practice Window in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows, and you'll see fun games that are fun ear training options for kids: Music Replay & Pitch Invasion.

Of course, you don't have to be a kid to like these games, I think there a fun way to learn at any age!

Music Replay is just what it sounds like - the program plays a 1-bar melody, and the user plays it back. Get it right, and you'll keep building that melody (and skill) within the game - get it wrong, and you'll be met with a warning tone and have to try again... it's quite addictive, and a lot of fun!

If you like a classic arcade game, then you'll love Pitch Invasion! We've managed to incorporate aliens with pitch-recognition skills in this exciting game, where you'll match the pitch of the alien ship descending towards your planet trying to destroy your collection of instruments - match the pitch and you've saved your instruments, make a mistake and the ship keeps coming... you'll have a few tries to get it right, if you're quick, but if all your instruments are destroyed - it's game over! The game speeds up as your skills improve, and you'll earn points along the way, with bonus points available throughout the game.

Open up your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows today to give it a try!

These ear training games are also included in Musical Arcade for Windows.
