music

Yes my radio is on most of the time. I used to listen to gospel until the gospel station went off the air. I listen to country. Like someone else mentioned no rock. I never listened to rock when I was a teenager.toy man

I stream Amazon Music using an old XP computer connected wirelessly to my WIFI. Great free music from Amazon for Prime members.

Nope.....I pay for a lot of mine. I don't give away woodworking projects for free, so I don't expect musicians to give me their art for free.

No it is free. Show me where listing to the radio costs you anything? You are not forced to listen to commercials. You choose to by not changing channels when they come on.

I heart radio has no commercials at all.

Fair enough, you keep listening to "free" radio and I'll do my thing.

I don't listen to free radio. I have a tablet plugged into the stereo. I listen to my own mix of songs. No commercials and no songs I don't want to hear.

If I'm running power tools, then no radio on in the shop. If I'm using hand tools, then usually some form of rock and roll is playing, either the radio, or something from my 30 gigs of music on my computer.

Tact is for people not witty enough to be sarcastic.

When I listen to music ... it's instrumental stuff. Movie Soundtracks, new age instrumental, etc.
But when I am actually working on something, no music. I teach my students that music is a distraction for the undisciplined mind. If you're working on a job with music as a "background", once a song you like comes on, you start singing that instead of the concentrating on the job.
Like people who think they can text and drive ... the human mind can't do two things at once.

My 20 year son disproves that "theory all the time. These kids are brought up completely differently than "old school" methods. They grow up doing 2 or even 3 things at once. My son was running an Apple 2 G when he was 2 1/2 and still sucking on his pacifier.

Now, texting while driving ...may... require taking your eyes off the road and yes, that is dangerous, but if you know where the keys are by memory, you'll be fine. I don't recommend it and have warned him against it for liability reasons. They can determine if you were texting while driving very easily these days, so if you are involved in a wreck, you can be held liable.

Another example is playing the piano. The right hand has no idea what the left is doing.... just sayin' :smile3:Guitars are the same. People are all different and bring different skill sets to the game.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

How about for the reason that YOU COULD [email protected]*%NG KILL SOMEONE if you take your eyes off the road for the 2 seconds it takes to read a text!!!! Seeing people finger fiddling their phones while driving makes my blood boil. I usually lay on the horn as I make the pass, tends to snap the idiot back into focus lol

They don't even need to be texting, to be distracted. Nine out of 10 drivers are driving one handed and talking on the phone, going too slow in the fast lane and have no clue in general. Try doin' that while ridin' your Harley.... just sayin' Now there's an example of doing 5 different things at once, balancing, accelerating, shifting, clutching, turn signals, looking for left turners... all while steering and watching for distracted drivers. Not every one is capable... :frown2:

The smartest smart phone apps will allow you to talk your texts or messages right into the phone....... cool.

I'm with BZ on the texting and driving issue. Studies have shown texting while driving is even worse than drunk driving.

Oh, and classic rock, metal, reggae, blues. Something is always playing in the shop.

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...
