    If like me you like to have some nice background music going while your studying what is your favourite? Or if you have any good suggestions that you've found work well while studying it up, post those too.

    I've found that some softer classical works very well, just loud enough to hear but not enough to really disturb your focus. Post your thoughts.

    Here are a few things I've found help:
    ● 'Trance' or passive electrical music, no vocals
    ● Chamber Music
    ● Anything Bach
    ● Music with uplifting beat to keep the mood high, found 'Spanish guitar' music to be especially good here
    ● lots of good techno/rave stuff based on classical music that works very well
    ● quick breaks, nothing more than 5 minuites or I won't come back
    ● good lighting, best is natural light
    ● back support, soft seat though
    ● neutral arm position, have a desk about mid-level

    I find that Jean Michael Jarre, Mike Oldfield, Vangelis, Tangerine Dream or Enigma usually work for me; anything New Age or Instrumental.

    Same here. Trance works well for me too, though. [​IMG]

    downtempo such as Kruder & Dorffmeister and Thievery Corporation work really well for me.

    Chicane win for me, hands down, their track "Overture" is awesome. Oscar Peterson is an excellent jazz pianist (/me waits for the "pianist = ..." joke) who helps me while I code :)

    Trance works well for anything :D
