Title: Work/music light
Post by: Tom on October 17, 2016, 07:58:26 PM
I've tried music stand lights, but they're somewhat limited, and I needed something better...

I'd previously bought Chris a floor lamp like this (https://www.amazon.com/Lavish-Home-Sunlight-Floor-White/dp/B003T5KIL4/ref=sr_1_22?ie=UTF8&qid=1476752130&sr=8-22&keywords=floor%2Blamp&th=1), both at home and in the coach, and she's been quite pleased with them. So I ordered the LED version of this light here (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01AQTXUUQ?psc=1). It arrived today, and is a really great light for reading/playing music.

I have no desire to wear one of those, but to each his/her own.

That was a joke. I should have put a  ;D on the end.

I forget which one of these I have, but it is VERY bright:

The trick is balancing it on my little light fold-up music stand.


Inside the trailer I use this on the dinette, with magnets to hold the music

At home I use SetList Helper on my desktop, but a lot of our camping is well beyond cell signal, so cloud-based programs are not a good bet for organizing music.

Also, while I am trying to be helpful, the two best Android apps, neither of which needs cell signal to work:

Gstrings tuner (the spouse prefers the Peterson Strobe tuner app, but I don't like strobe tuners)
Mandolin Chord Cracker (also available in guitar, ukulele, bass flavors)
