What are your thoughts on classical music

I am positive I will be in the vast minority here(if not alone) in this one however I listen to 2 types mostly. Classical and instramental jazz guitar.

First I appreciate the complexity in this music and enjoy listening too it. Second classical music also calms me and helps me focus and relax. When I listen to classical music before or while doing something complex I seem to preform better because for some reason I feel as I have a more even flow and rhythm. The rock and roll is good sometimes to get your Heart pumping but for the most part whatever I am doing I prefer to feel cool calm collective in control and focused and I get that from classical music.

It's strange and a little scary too given the people that listen to classical. My dad has a friend who lived with an ex special forces guy that retired and got into the mercenary type of work (let's say his name is Jim. He has said "I always knew someone was going to die soon when "Jim" was listening to classical music" supposedly it helped him stay calm and focused.

Anyone else listen to classical music and what ar your thoughts on it?

Some classical music is excellent. I don't listen to it often but I certainly prefer it over certain other types of music.

And, got to admit, I love a bit of Jazz. Especially the really bass driven stuff like Lawrence Cottle etc.

You're not a minority. I listen to all genre's and I can tell you straight off the bat no other genres of music (especially modern music) is as talented in terms of transitioning, rhythm, complexities of the melody, rotation, etc as classical. Modern mainstream music only cares about good beats now, not even caring if the rapper or singer is good or bad. Jazz is amazing. I feel like everyone should love Jazz. It's easy listening and very chill to listen to.

Big fan of classical music, especially Beethoven's piano concertos and Vivaldi's Four Seasons. I generally like to actually listen to my music actively (in contrast to having music support other activities like dancing, working out or playing games etc) so there aren't many genres lively enough to not bore me while listening. Both classical and jazz belong to my favorite genres for that very reason. Not only are they interesting to listen to but they're exceptionally hard to play which makes it even more interesting for me as a guitarist.

I absolutely love classical music, and find it's great to workout too, put me in a very calm place and allowed me to be relaxed when I worked out and could actually do a lot more in the gym. I also really enjoy ambient music and music from movie soundtracks. I love anything by Hans Zimmer and Clint Mansell, I'd advise checking them out. The music Hans did on The Gladiator soundtrack is so great.
