    So if you followed my previous post a month or two back

    https://www.tdpri.com/threads/the-family-piano.1078987/

    You may remember there was a piano that needed getting rid of. A magnificent Steinway upright grand from 1901 to be precise. It belonged to my wife's grandma and she passed away so her kids wanted to sell it. My wife's mom already had a piano, but she decided to take it in, rather than sell it. So I got to move that beast out of one house, down the street to its new home.

    My wife didn't want her mom to be stick with two pianos so she decided we would take her mom's piano. I wasn't very excited at first, because who wants a piano? They're great...but they are not light or easy to move. But she got rid of her China hutch to make room upstairs in the living room. As soon as we I played it I changed my mind though. It's a great piano! I don't reckon myself to be a piano player by any means, but I have a good ear and I can dink around. But my six month old son loves hearing music, so I'm excited to add piano to the instruments I play for him and expand his mind musically.

    So the TLDR version is I have a new piano. And an unintended bonus of this is I also have a new music room! The upstairs living room.

    And the new piano and upstairs music room. And it was all the wife's idea.

    HNPANMRD!

    I just got a music room/studio set up in the last few months. It’s the first “free” room in the house since my oldest son is now out on his own!

    So my wife came home to see my new guitar room and she seems to think that she's going to put fall decorations on top of the piano, and that my guitar isn't going to stay there. Something about how I have a whole room full of guitars downstairs. I think it completes the room!

    Every home should have a piano!

    Congrats on the piano and music room.

    Congratulations! It's terrific having a good acoustic piano in the house. I grew up with a big upright with great tone from the early 20th century and then lugged it around to the first few places I lived. Someday I'll get another.

    And that's a heck of a music room, Steve!

    Your (pictured) Jazz bass w/the piano (left hand) doubling the bass line...grainy and gritty! just a serving suggestion :)
