    Kinda Off Topic.

    Looking for good, quiet music.
    Classic guitar songs, no strong electric or anything with a hard beat.
    Lyrics is optional.
    Muse's Unintended is a good example.. And most of The XX songs.

    Everything is bad for something - How do you feel today?

    Some of the more mellow stuff I like...

    The Antlers- "Burst Apart" is a great album. Listen to all the way through, in order.
    Blind Pilot- Get their album "3 Rounds and a Sound"
    Iron & Wine- Music to fall asleep to
    The Tallest Man on Earth- In my opinion, some of the most beautiful music ever. Get all 3 albums.

    Every time I hear the dirty word 'exercise', I wash my mouth out with chocolate.

    Does it have to be guitar?

    Windham Hill's Winter Solstice 1 and Winter Solstice 2 are excellent. (later albums aren't as good)
    5'0" female, 44 years old. Started Primal October 31, 2011, at a skinny fat 111.5 lbs. Low weight: 99.5 lb on a fast. Gained back to 111 on sugar cheat. Currently fighting off sugar/candy cravings with bulletproof cocoa and a little rice.

    I (try to) follow by-the-book primal as advocated by Mark Sisson, except for whey powder and a bit of cream. I advocate a two-month strict adjustment for newbies. But everybody is different and should tweak Primal to their own needs.
