I feel ya for the hearing thing. I’ve pretty much given up on listening to it too. Kind of sad but if you can’t hear it what’s the point. I do think music is worthwhile though. There are threads here talking about keeping morale up during tough times and I think music is one way to do just that. I think learning to play an acoustic gutair is more realistic though. I sure wouldn’t waste fuel for a generator on a few tunes.Being hearing impaired, I don't listen to music anymore. If I did, it would be 50's & 60's.
Anything using electricity in its production is 'modern music' for me. I love huge swathes of itcant stand modern music, I was brought up with The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, and Elvis, I also like Heavy Metal and Country Music, but I wont be playing it post SHTF because of OPSEC and security concerns.
the amount of people I have seen either intent on their phone screen or jogging with earphones in, neither able to hear the car coming up behind them.Yes, but while wearing them, you are so vulnerable. People can sneak up on you. When people run on trails wearing ear buds, I cringe. Easy target.
