Okay, so if you're a musician, maybe you have some helpful advice on this.

I am currently looking to move out of the house and find a room in the city to rent. As some of you may know, being a musician can sometimes be hard on the people you live with. You play your music for hours on end, and sometimes it can really drive the people you live with crazy. Also, the neighbors complain too if your walls are thin.

Finding a practice space or rehearsal space for your band is another issue. Practice rooms in the city are really expensive, and what if your bandmates don't have a garage or basement. What do you do then?

Wondering if there's anyone out there with some good advice or strategies on how to play your music in an environment where you can play your heart out and not have to worry.

Peace.

That's good advice. what kind of headphones though? I have a pair of Sony's and they really sound very very bad. The guitar sounds all tinny and flat. And they hurt my ears too if I wear them too long.

Sennheisers do the job for me.

Headphones are the right method most of the time, but the best option is just to ask when it's okay and not okay to use the amp outside of that. That's what really matters just being open and honest about it, because instruments go down differently with many people. Some people like to hear you practice other would rather instantly kill you.

Get an Eleven Rack. They are awesome, not too expensive and better than the Pods. Plus you get Pro Tools with it.
