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 and Ratdog. Mickey Hart and Kingfish 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!
