In the interests of providing some assistance, in the hope that you might venture out of your stockroom, here is some friendly advice about bards:

It is often a good idea to go deaf, as this defense will prevent the majority of songs and music from affecting you, in addition to preventing use of the Voice.

Methods of achieving deafness include:

-- Dynallca Poison

-- Deafness Potion/Rune

-- Deaf charm

Hopefully this advice will be of use to you.
