I would like to know if It is a good idea to do a light track to have small 3' recessed light plus and light rope? I would like to this because my ceiling heights is low and I would like to have the rope light. Thanks

Are you talking about a track light with spot lights? your question is not clear. Basically any light that doesn't rattle is "OK" Rope lights are a common item, preferably mounted so you only see the light shining not the rope itself. My current project has 5 1/4 tall soffits with recessed lights and a rope light.

Yes, track light with spot lights. If I were to use 3' spot lights, how many feet between each lights? I couldn't sleep last thinking about this.

If you use 3 ft diameter spot lights you may want them at least 6ft apart. Since you've made the same mistake twice now I guess you don't know that ' is feet and " is inches.

I know that and I know that I made that mistake a lot. Well I'm trying to illuminate the room. The bulb, don't know, because I'm still in the planning process, but I will have 4 scopes lights
