Outside or in my bathroom?

I really don't get it. When i'm playing in my room or most other parts of the house, it sounds pretty good. But when I go outside, or in my bathroom to play, it seems to sound SO MUCH BETTER. Is there a reason for this?

In the bathroom there's alot more reverb.
In your house it's probaby just too dead (ie too many stuff on the walls), or awkward audiodynamics (dunno if that's even a word)
Outside there's nothing for the soundwaves to reflect off of at an awkward angle.

It just happens. A lot of established musicians like (or claim to like) the acoustics in bathrooms and many have written extremely famous songs whilst on the Crapper.
Deal widdit.

Haha, I actually did this. Well, not a full song, but I wrote an intro and a verse while taking a sh*t. It was motivating

The acoustics. In your bathroom there are fewer soft objects to absorb sound and the walls are closer. outside the air is more open and the projection is more natural because the sound waves aren't being reflected in different directions by random objects. Have you noticed the difference in standing and sitting as well? It's all about acoustics and...for lack of a better word, positioning of where your ears are in relation to the soundhole.

Just my 25 cents (two cents is out dated)

It's all physics and stuff. I won't get in to the fancy terminology but in layman's terms...

In your bathroom it sounds better cause its a closed off area and the sound is kinda boxed in. That's why the recording rooms in recording studios are relatively small.

Outside the sound is able to project in all directions, whereas in a regular sized room it's bounces off walls and corners and furniture and stuff.

haha, it's not audiodynamics, it's acoustics. but yea... you get a nice reverb in the bathroom. You'd get it anywhere else that's tiled and somewhat enclosed.
