Most of the time I tie in quiet. One of these days I will get some speakers set up in my tying area and maybe listen to some music. I like a broad variety of music. Pretty much everything except country and rap.

Depending upon the time of day I'll go for 'Talk Radio.' If not something like the Discovery Channel on the small tv in the BR I use for my 'tie desk.'

I just stick my iPod in the dock and have it on low in the background. Type of music depends on my mood at the time.
Other times I'll listen to fly fishing pod casts.

Default Re: we did drinking and smoking but what are....

I listen to sermons, as I'm a pastor and like to consult other folks before preaching on a given text. But I can't pay attention just sitting there staring at the screen. I find tying gives me enough of a focus to actually tune in to what's being said and keeping my mind from wandering.

Default Re: we did drinking and smoking but what are....

I'm all over the place on this subject.

Rock/Pop- Fleetwood Mac (Particularly anything Stevie Nicks sings), Chicago, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Elton and many others.

Country- Mostly older and rowdier stuff Hank,Waylon,George Jones,Patty Loveless. Can't stand most new country.

Country Gospel- Alan Jackson, Vince Gill duets etc.

Bluegrass in small doses.
