What Jere listens to during walking workouts..

Well, I am currently enrolled in Fitness Walking at a small college where I am an alumni. Rock music has been one of my main interests for over 25 years.
The walking music Jere listens to is:classic Grateful Dead
during their later years in the 80s until the passing of guitarist Jerry Garcia. Since his passing, they have made music under several other names like Furthur
. Mickey Hart
from 1976 which features guitarist Bob Weir.
Thus far I have increased my speed with these songs that make me feel youthful and bring back fond memories of my years as a guitar and musical theater student.
--Jere, these are great recommendations and I am sure they help keep your speed brisk. Thanks for recommending some great rock walking music! Read on for more of Jere's recommendations. --Melissa, the-fitness-walking-guide.com
The Kingfish cd features jazzy tunes like the opening song, Lazy Lighnin' and track 6 I enjoy in younger years. It is Jump for Joy.
Mickey Hart Band Live starts with the great soundwave of Time Never Ends, then
a Dead song from a '87 album, West LA Fadeaway, then Djinn Djinn is next and very creative.
In addition to these albums, I also listen to The Very Best of Jerry Garcia. It has been a download on my mp3 player for well over a year now. So, there is my connection to walking music and the legendary Grateful Dead!
Note that I also enjoy Slash's 2010 album and AC/DC's Stiff Upper Lip (2000). Of interest, I saw Slash as the opening act for AC/DC in Virginia in 2000 on their Stiff Upper Lip Tour!
