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?

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.
