Vivaldi's Four Seasons, especially "Winter".  Some day  with enough practice I'll be able to play the transitions on that piece!

Vivaldi's concerto for two guitars in G major.  I love the rhythm.

I like Native American flute music - it’s calming and meditative. Most recently I’ve been listening to some music by Bill Neal Elk Whistle from his Facebook fan page. Here’s a link to a video I particularly like: https://www.facebook.com/BillNealElkWhistle/videos/1321596598700/.

Here’s another awesome song and video: https://www.facebook.com/BillNealElkWhistle/videos/1828675195348/.

The third song is different because it’s a traditional Americana song, but played in a way I haven’t heard before - it’s available as a download on Apple Music:

https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/wayfaring-stranger-single/1257691732.

Enjoy!
