    Early Beatles, pre 68, brings back some good memories, and makes me very relaxed. But I listen on my way to a shoot not on the line.

    Depends on what you like. Personally, newer mainstream and/or alternative rock. Stuff like Salivia to Our Lady Peace to Korn to Disturbed. But, I can be eclectic in taste. My external hard drive has about 1,600 albums ripped to it and it goes from Barry Manilow to above mentioned to Bruce Springsteen, on over to Louis Armstrong, swinging by Garth Brooks, Shania Twain, Kenny Chesney, and heading back to AC/DC, Jimi Hendrix and just about everything in between.

    I keep about 70 hours worth on my Ipod, with a pretty big range of genres. I can pick and choose depending on how I feel and how I am doing. Faster louder if I am down, slow, or having trouble getting to the bird. Slower, more mellow when I am jumping and jerking the gun.

    Why do you want to be relaxed? Be aggressive! Listen to Iggy! LOUD!

    A little tension is a good thing (a little). Provided it's positive and focused on smashing the next target out.

    I listen to Ray Charles, "What'd I Say". Not to relax, but to occupy my mind so those negative (or any) thoughts don't start.

    Ifind some lyrics distracting. I do have some with lyrics(Queen - Fat Bottom Girls, etc) but like instrumental stuff. I took the solos out of a couple albums and made a sort of loop, repeating itself for 15 minutes. that one works pretty good.

    I use coolMP3splitter(free) to do it.

    Earl, See if you can find the album by Al Martino called COME SHARE THE WINE. It is the greatest music to relax you. Hullchucker.

    I have been listening to music for many a year. Started out with cassete tape then cd's now mp3. I listen to music that is upbeat and moving as the slow easy listening music makes me slow and I don't seam to get on the targets quick enough. Each to their own. Try it first before a big shoot.

    I don't listen to music when shooting. It I want to relax though, the music I listen to is Big Band Music, Glenn Miller, Artie Shaw, Benny Goodman, etal.

    I listen to a mix of classic rock, 80's and alternative before I shoot. Haven't had the earplugs made yet, but I did shoot with my IPod one day and almost fell over when slow music came on. Now that was distracting. My problem is that I'm afraid I'm going to start singing...out loud, never mind the dancing on the line. LoL

    Shootlow- You did not really mean to post Spike Jones did you? Few of us remember him, that may be good or bad.

    Nothing will prepare you for a shoot better that a good Sousa March. Wait, that was redundant. All of them are good. Also, a Strauss waltz will really help you swing to the second bird in doubles.

    Spike Jones........Geez, way too much going on there, firecrackers, whistles, sirens, cannons, too much.

    Anyone remember Two Ton Baker the music Maker?

    Shootlow even looks a little bit like Spike Jones.

    Loved those songs by Spike and his crew. Man, could he change a song.
