Shop Music

retro radio tape recorder in workshop

One of the most important things any serious woodworker needs is music for your shop. WoodWrite is here to help! Every week I will give a sample of some of the songs played in the shop and add it to our running playlist. If you want to listen to the same tunes we have on, check out our Spotify playlist at the end of the post. Check back often for updates!

Staind – It’s Been Awhile

Stevie Ray Vaughn – Little Wing

The Steeldrivers – Where Rainbows Never Die

I know, I know. We haven’t kept up with our shop music playlist. Things are happening here and, well, we sort of lost track. But, here are some real bangers in this edition. First up, we have Staind’s It’s Been Awhile is self explanatory. Aaron Lewis’s soulful voice let’s us know that late is better than never. Funny story, WoodWrite was working in the shop when he heard a neighbor practicing guitar in his yard. He attempted some blues licks and got us hyped up for some Stevie Ray Vaughn. Lastly, the Steeldrivers are always welcome in the shop, especially when Chris Stapleton is singing with them. So, sorry for the delay, but we hope you enjoy these additions. We promise the next update won’t take as long.

Marshall Tucker Band – Can’t You See

Wynton Marsalis – Delfeayo’s Dilemma

Ted Nugent – Stranglehold

You’ll see from this week’s selections, a bit of variety. Two rock classics and one frantic jazz piece. Classic rock is always a staple in the wood shop, and Stranglehold has one of the greatest guitar hooks in the game – if it doesn’t pump you up to cut wood, I don’t know what to tell you. Delfeayo’s Dilemna is a masterclass in music virtuosity and should help get your creative juices flowing. Lastly, the calm, soulful tones of Can’t You See is such a great song. Fun fact – WoodWrite saw the Marshall Tucker Band in concert in Tallahassee in 2004. Not many of the original members left, but the iteration played Can’t You See and the song still sounded great!

Happy listening! Check back next week for three more songs added to the playlist!
