What dose everbody listen to when tying

Recommended Posts

I have an I-pod that has a little bit of everything. Right now I'm listening to Trans-Siberian Orchestra .. going to their concert Dec 26 .. Mannheim Steamroller, Celtic Christmas music, Christian, Sarah MacLachlan, Poco, some oldies and a little metal. Like I said .. a bit of everything.

TSO!!! Great show. Went this year and last. Had front row tickets this year. Got a drum stick at the end of the show. I don't know which group you will see but the one we saw two years in a arow were awesome.

 

As far as when I'm tying it could be the Outdoor channel fishing shows or music. For the music I listen to Metallica, Who, Rush, Dead, Nickleback, Bob Dylan, CSNY, Allman bros. Mostly classic rock. Sometimes I throw on Country music. But not to often. If it's snowing I'll put on something relaxing and keep the window open, even though I stare outside to much.

 

On Sunday it's Breakfast with the Beatles. Love them Beatles. Best part of a sunday morning drive.

It all depends on what I'm tying... I have 50 GB of music, so there's a song for every mood

 

For big nasty Pike and Muskie flies I want heavy. Aggressive fish, aggressive flies... aggressive music - Metallica, Mute Math, Blindside, Rage Against The Machine etc.

 

On the opposite end of the scale, when I'm tying mid sized dries (14, 16 18) I like to slow it down - Cowboys and Indians, David Gray, Van Morrison, Cat Stevens

 

Bass flies get me a little giddy... tying craws, Clousers and poppers remind me of hot summer days and warm summer nuights. I need fun, up beat music for that - 311, Jack Johnson, Bedouin Soundclash

 

Steelheading can be epic... extreme elements, extreme locations extreme fish. When tying for a potentially epic adventure I need complex music with layers - Incubus, Supertramp, Angels and Airwaves, TSO

 

Tricos and midges are a chore! I need to remain calm and focused. Vivaldi, Mozart and Pachabel help me with that.

 

When tying flies for the flats, I want to feel like I'm on the flats... turn up the heat and turn on Jimmy Buffet and Bob Marley

 

There are many more flies each with their own moods... if I shared them all with you, you would all think I had OCD or some other mental health issue

In all honesty, the only "music" I cannot tolerate is rap and hiphop. Anything else I can get some enjoyment from. If you really want to make me happy, put on some classic and or oldies rock....what can I say...I'm old!!!

When I am tying I like to listen to classical Ildivo,Mozart, Bach.

I also like instrumental stuff like Mike Oldfield , Jean Michael Jarre I find this helps me concentrate on what i am doing

Bob Seger said it best with "I like that old time ROCK & ROLL... that kinda music just soothes the soul....I reminisce about the days of old; with that old time ROCK & ROLL...." :rockon: :cheers: :smoke: :drunk: :sick: :rockon: :yahoo: :thumbup:

 

Sorry 'bout all the emoticons... I just got caught up in one of those late 70's early 80's concert flashbacks!

For tying i like Pink-Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Rush, Jethro Tull, Hendrix...The mellower old rock.

I save the heavy metal for when i am shootin pool or racing.

I also like the mellow stuff when building engines or doing the fine work in the garage and the metal for body work, welding or the grunt labor.

Jerry, Phil, Bob, Mickey, Pig Pen...you know...a little of everything :headbang:

 

 

nice to see a few other heads around here.

 

I have my mp3 player hooked up to speakers, usually it is cranking out the dead, ratdog, JGB, dylan, or LoM/Reconstruction. I would listen to a hockey game if it was on the radio up here, but I probably wouldn't get much tying in ;)
