    I listen to a lot of Portishead.
  4. Zeppelin always hits the spot for me - but when I got other ways, I use Bela Fleck and the Flecktones (Especially the Little Worlds Interviews! - nothing is more inspirational!!), XTC, The Jam, and NPR - off the top 'o' my bald head...

    Malmsteen, Impellitteri, Tony macalpine or steve vai usually get me going into production mode pretty quickly.

  9. Talk radio on government bashing stations (democracy now and the such). Oh, and classic rock stations are always good.

    The whine of a router/table saw/mitre saw/planer/etc muted through my ear muffs.

    If you have time to listen to music you're not making enough wood chips!


    PS: Nah, I don't really believe that, but I almost never bring my CDs out to the shop. If I listen to music it's generally just a generic rock radio station.
  12. Well, I haven't started my first guitar yet... but when I'm building in the shop at work (things like steps, window frames, benches... anything) I enjoy having the radio either on the classic rock station or even better the jazz station :)

    Hehehe, never really thought about this. But currently I seem to listen to the ever groovin' Sly Stone and Victor Wooten a lot while I'm sketching. And while being precise i listening to stuff like Richard Bona, Dayna Kurtz, Charles Mingus. It seems to keep me calm and focussed. And woodworking... Well, there's just a crappy radio there. So mostly ffgggzzzzz kr kr bla krfuzzzzz ;)
