I'll start

For Creating Art: Mudvane, 311, POD, Sevendust, Ill Nino, Skindred, Linkin Park, Incubus, Chili peppers, U2 (older), The Fixx, REM, Helmet , Slipnot, Biohazard... Very agro!

For Chill'n: Staind, 311, Nickelback, Puddle of Mudd, U2, REM, Reggae, Skindred, Sevendust, 80's stuff in general, Cold, Offspring and too many more to list but, you get the idea.

I'm 45 years old with 3 kids that I am cooler than. I have the music often before it's on the air.

Nine Inch Nails, Filter and God lives under Water for the original aggressive debarking and deep cuts.

Then 311, Bob Marley, Burning Spear, Ziggy Marley, UB40 and a collection of reggae greats for the smoothing and adding of detail.

I am 44, married w/ 2 teenage kids a bouy and a gurl.

Nice thread cause I am alway searching on Rhapsody for new groups. But the are my mainstays.

Crank up and carve on.

P.s. I use a mini disk player that hold about 6 albums and I use earphones to dull the noise. Plus I can play it at the required level of 11.

I like to put on some rootsy blues music. I usually listen to rock (50s rock n roll through to Metallica) on the radio, but noone plays blues. So I put that on, crank up the tunes, and have at it.

A lot of new swingmusic like Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Royal Crown Revue and so on.
Check out Brian Setzer Orchestras "Vavoom" Great music and a really cool Shaginspired cover.

Some rocka/psychobillystuff, and of course some punkrock for parties!

I like All kinds of music when I carve when I can hear it. Strange thing is, I can be carving and almost done and realize I forgot the tunes. So, whatever music I play, I Mostly listen to the carving going on at the time. Some of these tikis Really love to talk.

I normally put my 40Gig Nomad MP3 player (easier to just say "iPod", but it ISN'T dammit!) on random and get an extremely eclectic mix of music. In the days before that I found Apex Twin's "Selected Ambient Works Vol 2" to be the best studio music I could find. It's a two CD set that really gets the voices in your head yammering. Not sure how it would work for the carvers, though.
