    I mostly always listen to music while playing games, Not classical though,  either bob dylan or the fleet foxes. It seems to help me concentrate more.

    Very nice!! Good to know I'm not the only one Laughing

    The rest of my family can't seem to concentrate on anything with music in the background so I wondered if it was a universal thing or something... lol

    Lukas I listen to a lot of Bach, Beetoven, and more Bach... Lolz Cool

    I absolutely do NOT listen to music whilst playing. It would take some of my attention away from the game to have music on. I like music very much and consider it should  have my full attention just as playing Chess should.  So divided attention for me.

    I listen to Bach, Mozart, and the occasional other tune while playing.

    This reminds me of the old debate over listening to music while doing schoolwork. If it is distracting for that, I have to believe it hinders chess thought too. However, chess is played for enjoyment, and if your object is to enjoy the game, then by all means enjoy it! But if you want to maximize your results, concentrate on one at a time.

    I usually enjoy Dream Theater and I think that it sometimes improves my play since I can calm down very easily
