I tend to listen to smooth jazz while working at the bench.
Strangelyenough, I don't care to listen to music when working in the
garden or barn, nor while riding/driving my horses or motorcycle.
Then I enjoy the sounds of nature around me (except on the
motorcycle, of course). I've envisioned some of my best designs
while letting my mind wander in the stillness.
But during the fabricating process, I like music.
