    Wow, it's tough practicing in a room where the temperature is hovering at 65 degrees. Stiff fingers are not fun. But I did plow through the CCR song 2 times with only a few oops. Feeling better and better about that.

    I was gonna respond "that's why blues developed in the deep south."

    But then I thought of Chicago.

    At 65 I'm not thinking of practicing. I'm thinking about why my fitness is broken.
    That is too cold. I'm sitting here next to my fireplace btw. I can't believe it snowed here already.

    65 degrees is my preferred rehearsal temp, once I get going (especially if I’m singing too), I warm right up.

    At night, I’d much rather be in a cool/cold room warmed up by blankets/my wife, than having the heat keep me warm... too easy to overheat... though that cost me $$$ in the summer.

    I rehearsed last night (and re-wrote some tabs) for two hours in my 65 degree addition (set at), it was perfect.

    Call me crazy but, 65°F (18°C) is very comfortable for me.

    image.jpeg My thermostat is set to 65 year round. My wife is hot blooded. I just installed a rannai gas heater in the basement for practicing. I'm getting used to being a cellar dweller.

    that sounds like my place!!! I always have cold hands and usually put them under warm water for a couple of minutes then try to play. Time to break out the space heater. I also put on insulated shirt, a tee shirt and then a pullover sweatshirt and a stocking cap not to mention my insulated pants too!!!

    Well I just finished up 45 more minutes practicing in the same temps so I'm kind of ok with it. After I did some stretching and scales my fingers felt a lot better.
