I have noticed quite a few shooters with iPod or MP3 players with molded ear plugs, listening to something while shooting.

What are the best sounds or music to help you relax so you can stay focused on the targets??

I thought of making a recording for the way I shoot ---Damn, Oh-Sh*t, Lost, Lost, Lost, unload and rotate !!

Why would you want to listen to music when you have the music of all the beautifull shotguns going off all around you

Worked for me. It's all in the rhythm.

(SPOKEN:) Dear God, you made many, many poor people. I realize, of course, that
it's no great shame to be poor... but it's no great honor, either. So what would have
been the difference if I had... a small fortune?

If I were a rich man,
Daidle deedle daidle
Daidle daidle deedle daidle dum
All day long I'd biddy-biddy-bum
If I were a wealthy man.
I wouldn't have to work hard,
Daidle deedle daidle
Daidle daidle deedle daidle dum
If I were a biddy-biddy rich,
Daidle deedle daidle daidle man.

I'd build a big tall house with rooms by the dozen
Right in the middle of the town,
A fine tin roof with real wooden floors below.
There would be one long staircase just going up
And one even longer coming down,
And one more leading nowhere, just for show.

I'd fill my yard with chicks and turkeys and geese
And ducks for the town to see and hear,
Squawking just as noisily as they can,
And each loud "pa-pa-geeee! pa-pa-gaack! pa-pa-geeee! pa-pa-gaack!"
Would land like a trumpet on the ear,
As if to say, "Here lives a wealthy man."
Oy!

If I were a rich man,
Daidle deedle daidle
Daidle daidle deedle daidle dum
All day long I'd biddy-biddy-bum
If I were a wealthy man.
I wouldn't have to work hard,
Daidle deedle daidle
Daidle daidle deedle daidle dum
If I were a biddy-biddy rich,
Daidle deedle daidle daidle man.

I see my wife, my Golde, looking like a rich man's wife,
With a proper double chin,
Supervising meals to her heart's delight.
I see her putting on airs and strutting like a peacock,
Oy! What a happy mood she's in,
Screaming at the servants day and night.

The most important men in town will come to fawn on me--
They will ask me to advise them,
Like a Solomon the Wise--
"If you please, Reb Tevye?"--
"Pardon me, Reb Tevye?"--
Posing problems that would cross a rabbi's eyes--
(chanting) Ya va voy, ya va voy voy vum...
And it won't make one bit of difference
If I answer right or wrong--
When you're rich, they think you really know.

If I were rich, I'd have the time that I lack
To sit in the synagogue and pray,
And maybe have a seat by the Eastern wall,
And I'd discuss the learned books with the holy men
Seven hours every day--
That would be the sweetest thing of all...
Oy!

If I were a rich man,
Daidle deedle daidle
Daidle daidle deedle daidle dum
All day long I'd biddy-biddy-bum
If I were a wealthy man.
I wouldn't have to work hard,
Daidle deedle daidle
Daidle daidle deedle daidle dum
Lord who made the lion and the lamb,
You decreed I should be what I am--
Would it spoil some vast, eternal plan,
If I were a wealthy man?

How About -

Mellow- Don Williams - I believe in you

Throw Down Rap - Tone Loc - Funky Cold Medina

I also downloaded one hour of beach wave sounds (it put me to sleep!)

Maybe I would be better off with - How Big'a Boy are ya - Roy D. Mercer (open a can of whoop-ass on them targets).

I shoot with music that the tempo is in tune with the speed I shoot. Example, If you are a fast shooter you need up tempo music if you are a slower shooter you need slower music. This way it is easier to shoot if everything is the same speed.

This is a subject that I've thought about for quite some time. Per Terry Jordan's suggestion, I bought Dan Gibson's "Natural Stress Relief" from Amazon. Since I bought it as an mp3 download, I only spent $4. Sounds of nature are not my favorite thing to listen to, so I was a bit skeptical at first. But after shooting with it for some practice sessions, I found that it helped ease my anxiety during shooting--since I am trying to slow down my shooting, that was just what the doctor ordered. I also find Thievery Corporation helps keep me toned down.

The important thing to remember when shooting with music is that the volume should be low. That way the music won't be a distraction.

Pigkiller thanks for bring up Terry's suggestion. I also purchased the solitude music and just got my custom monitors. Been using the music with the wall chart and will be shooting tomorrow with the setup. My issue was less anxiety but rather thinking to much causing missed shots. Joe

Wellll.... NO. I pretty much listen to Joe Bonamassa and Billy Ray Vaughn and Eric Clapton enroute to my gun clubs. Those guys are and were great blues/rock guitarists. But on the line... I just listen to my eyes and go over my mental cue phrases... no music for me. I just keep it simple.
