  • Welding Music

    Watching Motorcycle Mania (Jesse James) - he mentioned that he likes to listen to Fu-Machu (rock group) when he welds. It made me think - hmmmmm.... I wonder what other people like to listen to while they weld

    My choices:

    1. Any sissy, wimpy, new-age music. Angels, harps, "happy" lyricless music. Enya, Enigma


    2. Pink Floyd and ANY classic rock

    3. Fu Manchu (Jesse is not their only fan)

    4. Trouble

    Anybody else have a fav music they would like to share with everyone?

          Yeah, I left out the jazz, the blues and big band. I'm a jazz bassist, and my brother is a classical trombone player, so I'm exposed to a lot of different types of music

            Tanner:
            Your diversity far overshadows your youth, fine choices. I have a mini disc that I found earplug buds for, it has discs for Classical, R&B, Rock, Jazz, and even some Meditational music. This really messes with people who think they know me.

            During my mig final a few years ago, I only had a radio with buds and my best vertical butt during the class was to Led Zeplin- Stairway to Heaven. I personally have no natural rythem so I follow the beat of the music. Yes it will foul you up if it changes tempo, so I try to stick with the same type music for duration of an evening.

            PS- NEVER WELD OVERHEAD TO QUIET RIOT!!!

              80's hair bands = Heavy Metal, for me. old AC/DC, Poison, Motley Crue, Scorions, Dio, Ozzy, Triumph, & sooooo many others of that ilk. also Hard Rock & country rock, Allman Bro's, Zepplin, Who, Black Sabbath, Skynard, etc. some clasic rock. then there is the new stuff, Nickle back, Velvet Revolver, Tool, Metalica, etc . i mostly just put the radio on, and weld while they play the tunes i don't much care for, or heard a million times, = most of the time. but when a KICK A$$ tune comes on, torch goes down and volume goes up .

                    There's something comforting about starting a tig arc whilst listening to Christian Lindberg play flight of the bumble bee on a trombone.

                    If I'm in a hurry, or trying something new, Joy Division is in my minidisc ready for occasion.

                    Jaco Pastorius' "6/4 Jam" is an amazing song for any out of position work, I feel

                      Thank you PJ for your kind words. I've noticed a lot of other weldors not having a very good natural rhythm, but when my brother, the trombone player for 7 years first picked up the mig torch, I said to him "you want to run this about 100bpm, listen to the puddle, make sure you're not out of tune and keep your helmet down and ears open." When I came back 20 minutes later, and looked at his coupons, you could have thought a professional did them. I've found that if you can talk weldors into relating welding into something they are very comfortable with, they perform a lot better than just showing them how to weld. When I first started machining, I related the delay in moving the cross slide into the pause inbetween the engagement points of my freewheel on my bike.

                        I pretty much don't turn the boom box on. I like a lot of country, but my big excitement comes from JAZZ, and you cannot IMAGINE what a weld would look like if you got the stinger movin' in 3/4 time listenin' to Cannonball Adderly! (Unfortunately, long time gone.) or Zoot Sims! (Uh, I'm also kinda old...)

                        Rock on!

                            You are not that old, I'm 37 and feel like I'm a hundred. If I am lucky I might make it to 50. I've been, beat, bent, broken, turned, and twisted and I still like the music of generations gone by, like a fine wine { or bourbon** gets better with age.
                            Peace,
