I am curious as to why Derek and Oteil stand on top of persian rugs and Warren does not. Which is more common in music? I am sure there is a sound reason.

Not stupid at all.

Otiel often plays barefooted and a carpet is much more comfortable.

Derek likes the way the carpet softens the guitar sound being reflected off the stage...

Just as Warren prefers the harder guitar sound reflected off the bare wood of the stage. Warren DOES use a carpet when performing on a concrete, metal, or stone stage where the reflected sound is TOO harsh.

Cool. Thanks for the info. I knew that the Grateful Dead used a rug for sound reasons, but I wasn't sure the exact reasons.

Ronnie Van Zandt used to stand barefoot on stage also. Something to do with being able to " feel the music "vibrate through the wooden stage.I think.

For years, I've been thinking about applying for a job....the guy who vacuums those rugs...

Actually - thanks for the answer, I wouldn't have thought about the effect on sound/tone....

Definitely. I especially like the part about "a sound reason."
