Room 2 has less reflected sound.

Of course this may be because of several things other than the room itself ... mic placement, mic direction and distance from mic to guitar, a different mic or same mic set to different pick up pattern, mic and guitar's proximity to walls, how parallel walls are in each room (standing waves), height of ceilings, materials in room 2 that absorb sound better such as drapes, rug/carpeting/padding differences, furniture, exposed glass windows ... actually a zillion things.

Ditto for me (not an expert, not a golden ear by a long shot): Room 2 was better of those two samples. Room 1's short reflections didn't please me.

Hi sdelsolray,

excellent suggestion. Two quick and dirty recordings at 4' away from the guitar in each room. Had to do some creative trimming to the tracks to work around my neighbor's continuous weed whacking!

Room 1 at 4':



Room 2 at 4':

Outside of picking up and moving my family to another house, this is what I have to work with.

Some acoustic panel treatment (in the larger room) would help a lot. Elsewise do your best with close up mic'ing.

I will be purchasing some 4" gobos that hopefully will help.
