    PJ, Blown and Tanner would be at home in my shop, ....at the least the tunes would be familiar. I always have the radio on. I need background noise to concentrate. The unfortunate result of shooting two boxes (almost 300 rounds) of shells without ear protection. My ears have been ringing ever since. I was young and stupid and have been paying for it ever since.

    I'm only a year older than you are. We think on a similar vein, it seems. The older stuff is getting better all the time. That's not to say the newer stuff is garbage, just not quite at the same level in some cases,..... maybe most cases.

      Welding Music

      I too am into Jazz - but am pleasantly surprised that so many of oyu out there are too into Jazz.

      Ahhhh..... the power of (Welding) music: Getting to know one-another a little better and bringing us all together!

      Rock On everyone....

            For me it all depends on who's around, if i'm by myself it's classic rock, and 80's rock and some heavy metal. If my pop's is around the shop then i have to listen to 50's and 60's music, you know there's nothing like listening to sitting on the dock of the bay, while your welding. j/k, nothing against my fathers music, i just can't weld to it.

                I posted a spoof-video on American Chopper - and I put the "heavy metal" loop that usually is on that show. But my video is only 40-seconds. I'm in the process of making a 5 minute or so video with tons of great music while I'm welding. I'm really going to be creating the scenes "around" the different types of music I envision. See my post on Trailer Pictures to view the video.

                It's SO great how music is SO important to us welders...

                        Its very interesting to hear what people are into when they weld. Personaly I'm either listening to classic rock or early post rave electronic, but only for the first half of the day...

                        I've found that ear and mental fatigue really start to add up after a couple hours in the shop. With all the grinding and chopping, the compressor switching on and off, and the plasma and TIG(which is VERY loud) always in the back ground, I start to look forward to a few minutes of silence. I feel that all the noise increases my stress and body tention. Sometimes I wear ear muffs all day but it doesn't help that much. Any body else feel this way?(Go ahead and tell me I'm a sissy, I can take it)

                        I should mention that years of DJing and gun play have left me with chronic ringing in my right ear.

                              i dont think you a sissy. i where ear plugs from the minit i enter the shop till i leave it. i turn the stereo up to the point that i can here the story teller as if he were speeking normaly through the ear plugs. all you need to do is here the compresser start 1 time to remind you to put in the plugs. a metal shop (even a home 1 ) is way too loude to go without ear plugs.
                              i would think most here turn up there music to be able to here it through the ear plugs.

                                Andy - that's great!!! I love Frampton - Frampton Comes Alive is what I remember hearing when my father would weld with his stick welder. Brings back the memories - and makes me want to be like him more and more... I think from the replies, Classic Rock and a close second (Heavy Metal).
