April 26, 2015 Music on Muir?
« on: 04/30/15, 08:52 AM »

I discovered that  Three O'Clock Blues" (BB King and Eric Clapton) had just the right cadence to pace me up the steep section at about 8,000 feet. I normally enjoy the sounds of my pounding heart when I go back country, but for the first time, I listened to some of my 1,700 tracks on random play (from Aaron Neville to Zeduardo Martin) while slogging up to Camp Muir last Sunday. Any suggestions for the ultimate Muir playlist?

You're going to get as as many answers to this question as there are genres of music, and I guarantee that while you are skinning up to Muir listening to BB King someone else on the snowfield is listening to Beyonce while yet another is rockin Swedish death metal.

But there are some commonalities. Generally for rhythmic aerobic exercise you want a 4/4 time signature (ubiquitous in popular music) and a tempo of 120 - 130 bpm. Bonus points for strong emphasis on the 1 and 3 beats (thus creating the metronome referenced by Weaver). A lot of digital music has metadata that gives the bpm (including virtually any music you purchase from an online store). Most music programs like iTunes have the ability to create "smart playlists" that would harvest songs from your music library that have, say, a 120 bpm. Give that a shot and see what comes up! Increase or decrease the bpm to suite your personal pace taste.
