The last music I had on while "mineraling" (is that a word?) was Bo Diddley's Greatest Hits.

I listen to anything when working with my rocks. However, slightly off topic I had an MRI done yesterday and I requested that they play opera in the head phones, it made the procedure easier for me because the soprano sounded like she was in worse pain than I was.

just because we are rock people, doesn't mean it has to be Rock music, right?
I choose Progressive House B) or something a bit more ambient, depending on whether i'm actually breaking rocks or viewing through a microscope!

I have found that smooth jazz helps things run smoother, especially when you are struggling with the camera.
Tops of the list are Dotsero, Acoustic Alchemy
and the Rippingtons, especially the albums
Topaz and
Black Diamond.
