    Hi,

    I've been recovering from mild elective surgery since mid-July of this year. The "surgical wounds" (fixing some busted stuff in shoulder due to accidents years and years ago...) left me with advice not to shoot until about the first of the year. I'm not a good shot anyway, but enjoy it immensely. BUT...I am sure I will be much improved when I return simply because:

    I checked out the mp3 pocket players and they are neat. I plan to now attack "them clay birds" in the future while listening to ZZ-TOP as a primary source of repetitive auditory and personal input. I've also heard that their song "La Grange" is that (Texas) city's high school's fight song; therefore, should be good for fighting "them birds..."

    Cheers to all and feedback re. other music appreciated.

    Gene Ford & The Thunderbirds (1957 - one hit only).

    The only words I remember:

    "Well, I went around the house;
    Here's what I heard;
    My Baby's gonna leave me
    In a Thunderbird."

    and....

    "I had a '56 Ford;
    I was doin' fine.
    I was passin' 'em all
    Right down the line,
    When a State Police
    Pulled up from behind...."

    Can't remember the chorus. Probably just as well.

    Mike

    Odd that a high school would use a fight song written about a whorehouse.

    Perazzi, you're a yippy little dog that won't shut up.

    "The Chicken Ranch was as an illegal but tolerated brothel in the U.S. state of Texas that operated from 1905 until 1973. It was located in Fayette County about 2.5 miles east of downtown La Grange. The business was established by Miss Jessie Williams, and was the basis for the 1978 Broadway musical and later movie The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas."

    Instrumetals work better for trap, you don't get distractd by the lyrics.

    That said, there are many songs with monster solos that are great for shooting.

    Skynerd "Call Me the Breeze"

    Led Zep "Rock and Roll"

    Bob Seger "Sunspot Baby"

    Orbison "Dream Baby" and "Move on Down the Line"

    Queen "Fat Bottom Girls"

    The list goes on......(Yeah, I have some ZZ top too)

    David. I was going to buy an MP3 until I learned that you can load the songs on a cell phone. It works nicely. For me if it aint old time country or bluegrass I dont listen to it LOL. Seriously I have over 1000 songs on my samsung infuse and listen to it at the Gym every day. It takes my mind off of working out and the time flies

    Some Stevie Ray Vaughan would be compatible with ZZ-top,

    Thanks for the advice re. not getting songs with lyrics. The Steve Ray Vaughn music sounds like a great idea; I remember one part of a lyric, really upbeat: "get away from the blind side of life...."

    Anyway, I just wrote to the LaGrange Texas Chamber of Commerce for more information about ZZ Top. The following is what the lady told me via e. I do think it would be WFO if there were a traprange out by that little place on the outskirts of LaGrange...and the following came to me via e from the "Little Lady at the LaGrange Chamber of Commerce":

    _______________________________________________________________________________


    "No, ZZ-Top is not the official band of La Grange. They recorded a song based on the history of La Grange. And, no, the school’s fight song is definitely not ZZ-Top’s song about La Grange."


    "Our town is steeped in culture, history, music and outdoor experiences. We have great local shopping and a beautiful downtown historical square and historic architecture. There is also canoeing and kayaking on the Colorado River, biking trails, lodging and wonderful restaurants all within and around our community."

    Cubancigar 2000.........My cell phone is the same way..I imagine yours also has the little SD cards you can insert in the phone for unlimited amount of music....

    .One question is , if you use yours during shooting trap is your earpiece enough to block the noise like ear plugs or do you have microphones in your earplugs?

    V10 has me listening to "Grateful Dead" on my IPhone now while shooting. I can't decide on the volume level though. I like to hear the scorer but i like the music loud enough to drown out the distractions. I don't want to have to fiddle with the volume during a round. Definately makes me more relaxed.

    likes to shoot - I use small headphones because I cannot get the earbuds to stay in my ears and I get a real quality sound from them ( Phillips earphones for $19.00) and yes I use a SD chip in my phone for more memory. I dont need ear plugs with the headphones on

    With ProEars you can adjust the external sounds and then you can adjust the music with your device.

    Works great.

    Here's a little secret I'll share with those shooters unable to set a release trigger with gun up. Please send donations as I'm planning my spring Fl. shooting trips and a few extra $$$$$$$ will help with this endeavor. Try playing music through headphones while shooting. 50's oldies worked for me but more modern stuff like Steppenwolf should have the same effect. Worked good for a number of years!!
