Just had a couple of hours at the bench, building and listening to music, which got me thinking if any members listen to music while building. Tonight it was Scorpions. Two more of my favourites are Paloms Faith and Rag n Bone Man.

I like to listen to different types of music, at the moment it's mostly Genessis, Pink Floyd, The Killers and Carter USM.

I don’t very often but when I do, I go into Morse mode and listen to classical music. I find it less distracting than ‘popular music’. That isn’t as snobbish as it sounds as modelling at the bench is the only time I do listen to classical now.

Music yes!

King Crimson, Gentle Giant, YES, Wishbone Ash, Caravan, Rainbow, Dream Theater, Jethro Tull, Neal Morse, Mike Keneally etc.
But only when building. I don't tend to listen to music when I paint for some reason? Not planned, just the habit.

Radio 2 usually, depending on what time of day it is, but yes, there's always something on in the background.

Yes I listen to music whilst building. It tends to be whatever the daughter is playing in her room next to me !

I usually have something on in the background, but having quite eclectic tastes this can range from motown, punk and ska to techno, garage and hip hop, and pretty much anything in between.

The only thing I truly hate is country and western. Not sure why??

I love music, but when I’m working on the workbench..... my choice is the silence.

for me its jazz.......3 blokes all playing different tunes at the same time lol
I'm a musician and as a non-musician I can fully understand that this is what some types of jazz and progressive music can sound like.
The difference between jazz & prog and country & western is that the two first ones can really play their instruments whereas the latter hardly at all... hehe... :tongue-out:

You're not alone there but out of respect for the remote chance that someone actually listens to that stuff I'm not saying anything more... ;)
Each to his own, I guess! I've come to the conclusion that whatever floats your boat etc... As a result of this thread, I've just worked my way through a LOT of Prog Rock, a bit of Jazz and some dirty Dub Electronica on YouTube whilst working. You've started something here...
