PAD: You touched on the one thing that isn't good in my room. This is a living room, and while I think the room sounds better than any room I've been in, it is a living room. It's a long wall setup and I have a large sectional couch. My listening position seating is far from ideal. It of course works for me, but it's not set up for a GTG. I will only be able to accommodate a single listener at a time unless guys want to snuggle up together on the couch. In the past we have, but that's those of us that know each other well enough to do so. You can see this in the pictures I posted in reply #247 on page 9.
I would absolutely appreciate some playlist ideas. There is a lot I like to use, and cutting it down is going to be tough. I would like ideas from everyone, and a consensus on the list would be great. Let's get the ideas started!
I also believe we all listen to music differently. Some people focus on vocals, some on instruments, some on bass, others on treble, and some try to grasp everything. I always appreciate knowing what specifically someone hears in a particular track. I think this helps keep everyone on the same page. Who knows, maybe we'll all learn something as well? I know I always do.
I'll start by throwing out some of the tracks I'd like to use:
"Boxenkiller" Cyrill Lutzelschwab and Martin Hess
"Walking On The Moon" The Yuri Honing Trio
"You Haven't Done Nothin'" Jen Chapin
"When I Need You" Jocelyn B. Smith (live recording)
"Rubina" Joe Satriani
