Anyone listen to music while they work?
I ALWAYS have classical music playing. It helps me relax and focus. And it also adds something to my work by listening to such inspiring music while im working.
Do you listen to music in the shop? If so what do you listen to?

Greetings wwg,
No…. I don’t whistle, but I do listen to bluegrass music when I’m in the shop…..
I play bluegrass music, so therefore I listen to it….I have to stop and slap my knee every now and then…lol.

I have full surround sound in the shop and love to listen to some tunes while I’m working. :)

Sure, really do whistle while i work. I guess I need earmuffs with music capability, I can’t listen to my music wearing the standard muffs. My musical taste ranges from Muddy Waters to The Clash. Not much made after about 1975 that I want to listen to, unless it’s blues, and some jazz.
