What Kind of Music to you Listen to? #classicalguitar #concert #discoveringsomethingnew #MFRWauthors

Often when I do interviews, one question asked is "what kind of music do you listen to when writing?"

I need to digress for a minute.

Many years ago,  our local mall had a store called Nature Wonders. While wandering with my girlfriend, guitar music came on. I heard it and my toes tapped and I wiggled some. So did my girlfriend. I ended up buying the CD by Nova Menco.

Here's a youtube video:

I bought the CD.

I often listen to classical music when driving because it is less agitating. I noticed more classical and Spanish guitar music. I wrote down names and listened to the snippets on Amazon and Apple music. I bought CDs and downloaded tunes. Eventually, I amassed a large playlist.

One day, I heard a famous father and sons group was coming to my area and I insisted ongoing. The host mentioned the local classical guitar series and cha-ching! I was sold. I became a subscriber.

So what kind of music do I listen to when writing? Classical and Spanish guitar.

I like it because no words are interfering with my words. LOL. I say this and have to admit I do listen to some other musicians like Simply Frank and classical music, too. I save the seventies (best music era ever) for most drives.

On Tuesday evening, Handsome and I heard David Russell. Boom! My head exploded with the incredible overload. I even closed my eyes periodically and listened. Interesting to do as it filtered down to what was important-the music.

I had to wear my Be Kind hat, though. A young man texted on his phone for the entire show. I honestly don't know how he had an experience. This concert was world-class. His loss.

Are you wondering if I listened to guitar while writing  Sommerville days? Some! Check out all the fun at:

Great post Vickie!
I can't listen to music when I write...well, if a radio or something is on in another room maybe - background noise - but not close by.

Good luck and God's blessings

I know what you mean, Pam. That's why music with no lyrics work best for me.
