    Music sweet music it's ever changing! Just like your pipe and bacci. I love many varieties of music. From Alternative to Zydeco...literally! My go to is Blues music in all it's dimensions. I listen to Pandora often and CDs and some choice vinyl records.

    Lately I get in the mood to smoke with Junior Kimbrough. He's a dark southern swampy bluesman with his own funk and swagger. I sometimes get current with Gary Clarke Jr. I enjoy smoke with these guys most often lately so check them out.

    Please give your feedback! Nobody right nor wrong.

    Smoke it up,
    Donavan

    Edit: Fixed the title/Al (what is "sesh"?) I think you meant "Stash", so I fixed that.

    If I'm straight up relaxing and really in the groove, and not mushing my brain up by staring at the interwebs... it's jazz. Ranges from the classics, to the more current, though I don't like that smooth jazz shite.

    Thanks guys for the feedback! I feel music and bacci go hand and hand. So please share this topic with your friends and smoke on. It's not topic to get bent on. Just be open to share music with strangers and hope they like it. Further more maybe you can like something new to listen to.

    There is no wrong here! Bacci and music 123 go!!

    Since I only smoke outside, the accompanying music rotates between nature sounds, police & fire sirens, train whistles and the carillon of the nearby church.

    I have a very eclectic taste when it comes to my music. While enjoying my pipe in the back yard under trees close to the stream I enjoy Native American Flute.

    Best case scenario, the river. The Provo river to be exact.

    I like blues, outlaw country, and while not music, I also like to listen
    to baseball games.

    Lately the Tortoise album Millions Now Living Will Never Die. A great group of musicians put together by the incredible drummer John Herndon, they explore modern music theory often overlooked by traditional musicians. If you give it a listen, make sure to get through the intro, it starts off pretty atmospheric.

    I have a wide range of tastes as I grew up around many varieties and genres. I primarily listen to metal, but when I'm smoking I find myself usually
    listening to stuff from the 80's or older. The other day I was listening to Sinatra and Otis Redding while smoking ... then I listened to Dio and Iron Maiden in the evening.

    In the house its usually the "Bakersfield" sound or earlier "honky-tonk" with the volume set low enough so as not to distract me from whatever I'm reading. It the near future it will be the sound of my first grandson needing a change, food or just a bit of TLC. I'm really looking forward to those sounds, especially knowing that I can send him home with his parents when I tire of it.

    Outside its usually the sounds of nature when I'm behind the lens. Sometimes though, it's the sound of the chainsaw or tractor.

    I always keep some Haydn symphonies is going around my tobacco stash. I find that the tobaccos enjoy the music, and age in a slow and appropriate fashion when they're listening to it.

    Steely Dan/Donald Fagen--them's some good pipe smoking' music! That "Nightfly" album takes me back to a time before I was born where people worried more about nuclear annihilation and Communist expansion than secondhand smoke…plus SD/DF has such a cool jazzy groove to it..

    smokeytay33 ...or to Disney music.

    I have one child on the West coast who’s just starting out in Animation, and another enrolled in the Disney College Program on the East. They were raised on everything from Bob Marley to The Little Mermaid I suppose. Safe to say I too have some Disney Tunes in the rotation, or at least floating around in my head.

    apiperisdown,

    I did the Disney College program in 2011 and had the time of my life. I hope your kid enjoys it! And animation would be a fun thing to do. One of my favorite places in Wald Disney World is the Animation Studio in Hollywood Studios. Good luck to them both!

    Ok, what am I listening to. I usually smoke outside, and as I live in the woods, I just listen to nature whatever it happens to be. In the fall, the sound of nature is occasionally punctuated by a gunshot or two which is kind of interesting.
    When I smoke inside, if I'm not on the computer reading these forums, I go into my music/library room and l listen to jazz or classical especially piano played by Glenn Gould, or one of my favorites, indie artist Laurie Anderson.

    Wow the feedback has been amazing! I'm new to forums so I started this one without looking (oops).Seems it has taking off very well! I'm currently watching a SRV DVD I've not watched in years "Live at Carnegie Hall" on a 60 inch HD vs a tube HD 32 inch TV. I just acquired a sound bar for my setup back in Febuary and really enjoy it for it does not have cables running all through my living room and it sounds very nice!

    I have to agree.
    This duo managed to record some incredibly clean music on LP's decades before digital music became a reality to the masses.

    Alan Parsons is another one in that league.

    +1 trailboss. SD are great musicians and producers alike. I've read they ran tape and mic all the to the bathroom from the studio some 200+ feet just to get a sound from a guitar to match a chorus section. Whatever works and cocaine is a "helluva drug" from Rick James and Crosby!

    Heck yeah! Cannibal Corpse is awesome. I prefer the Chris Barnes era, but George is a dang good DM vocalist. I saw them live a few years ago. Very cool! Alex Webster is an amazing bass player. Never really listened to Goregasm though.

    Why this obsession with music? Music is good, in it's place, such as the concert hall, but I don't want to hear music when I am holding the phone, standing in a elevator, in a store or restaurant or walking down the street. And certainly not when I am smoking. Silence is better.

    The music I choose to listen to depends on the mood I am in at the time. Usually - although not always - it is classic rock/oldies, blues,or classic swing.

    @daimyo, John Herndon, one of the drummers for Tortoise, is a good friend of mine, and he went to school with my girlfriend. It's always great whenever someone recognizes them, they are not mainstream, but very innovative. They always stay with us, when they hit shows in the Southeast. Coming from an art school, I have been blessed to know many who are now in the music industry.

    But, for me while working at the bench all day, I like a mix of Jack Johnson style folk to bluegrass (jamgrass) and blues/jazz. Pandora is really my only source of recorded music nowadays. We also have quite a few music festivals in town, just a block from my shop, so on most weekends, I can just walk over and smoke my pipe while enjoying the music.

    But, I come from an 70's 80's Grateful Dead and heavy metal background. But, I just never got into the drug/drinking culture, the girls were great though. And, when my hearing started declining, I had to give my eardrums and nerves a rest with more subdued forms of recreational auditory vibrations.

    This makes me pine for the days when I could smoke my pipe at the local Irish Pub while listening to a traditional Irish music session. To me that was the perfect accompaniment. Nowadays, since I can't smoke in pubs and I don't smoke in my house, I usually smoke my pipe outside without music playing. Sometimes I'll listen to an audio book or some classical or traditional Irish music. But mostly it's just the sound of my thoughts and the great outdoors.

    I play soft classical for my tobacco. I have an mp3 player hooked up outside the closet my stash is in. In the evenings I open the door so the tins and jars can hear the music easier.

    Mostly at work I listen to classic rock or go with the likes of The Misfits, Ramones, Calabrese, Stellar Corpses or Nim Vin. Just depends on my mood, work load and the general annoyance factor from my coworkers.

    Lately I've been blessed with the sound of Trumpeter and Tundra Swans, backed by a chorus of Widgeons and Mallards. It's migration time and I'm out morning and evening with the Nikons on the marshes. Always take a couple of pipes along and a couple of different blends.

    My favorite Seasick Steve song is "Just Because I Can (CSX)". I have a love for railways, I love my pipe, I like the idea of smoking my pipe and riding a old freight car "listen to the clickty clack"

    Nothing like shooting a Thompson on full auto with a cigar or pipe...that is sweet music to my ears.

    I've been a Pearl Jam fan since I bought the "Ten" cassette way back in '93. I finally get to see them live at the Xcel in St.Paul in 16 hrs. Can't wait! Going to start out with a lil pub crawl then smoke a bowl at The Golden Leaf then pub crawl a little more. Sounds like a great day to me,aye!?

    Pearl Jam burned the house down with a 3hr set of 30+ songs. They made up for their lack of visits to MN over the years. They killed it!

    On my days off I find myself on YouTube watching all the current St.Paul show videos. I obviously do not want it to end! I'm conflicted about the fans that have their smartphones in the air to "film" the show and those like me that take it all in.

    What are your feelings on smartphones filming the show vs just watching it. I personally didn't have an obstructed view from smartphone usage but I'm guessing many did.

    Music, sweet music. They'll be music in the air. They'll be singin and swayin and records playin.

    I often find myself having old songs pop into my head for no apparent reason, yet, I try to imagine why. I believe there is one.

    I love to surf youtube for covers of these songs from my subconscious. I'll start with the one that is the song's signature and then check out how others have treated the same song.

    Just the other day the song "Love Letters" came to mind. I found, so far, 11 covers of this song. Even Joe Walsh, Jeff Beck w/ Tom Jones!, Etta James, and on and on...I'm NOT alone, in the night.

    Here's the signature version by Ketty Lester.

    Now, click on the King of Covers...Elvis, for comparison.

    I love it! Thank you newbroom!
    I don't know how to add YouTube to forums yet. But you've got me thinking

    By the way, I'm a blues aficionado too. I've been playing the harmonica since 1958. I first learned a song on a gifted Honer 64...which, sadly, I no longer have. I tend to play Suzuki and Lee Oskar's now.

    I can rip up some stuff on guitar. I'm also 'self taught'. I play upside down and backwards. I'm a lefty and learned some things early on by messing with other's rh axes. Once I learned a few chords I was off and running. Mostly rhythm with some finger picking thrown in...I've worn out the finish between the frets of G, C, A, and E chords. Sometimes I'll let my instruments sit for weeks...then I'll get fried and pick one up again. Funny how that works.
    I posted a clip back when I first joined of me playing my C harp. I was using a youtube backing and it was all spontaneous...not really good, but shows promise.

    I also love covers. That is one aspect of Jam bands I really enjoy. That Ketty Lester song is a jewel.

    I normally prefer peace and quiet while smoking, but my music of choice is Blues, 50's, 60's, 70's and some 80's and 90's rock. And a little Country now and then.

    It's all about KC & The Sunshine Band. Well, either that or Audioslave.

    That's the way! Ugh huh! Ugh huh! I like it! Ugh huh! Ugh huh!
