I woke up this morning and worked on music for about 3 hours. I did some guitar/song writing for the first hour, then did a long rhythm practice session on guitar. As a result of the rhythm practice session, I think I will purchase Justin Guitar’s Understanding Rhythmic Notation as it comes highly recommended from a drummer/guitar friend. The book covers the notation thoroughly but it also covers reading of rhythms and many rhythm practice exercises.

After practicing rhythm for a while, I embedded the exercise a bit further by practicing drums for about an hour. I am liking the exercises and courses over at Drumeo. Drumeo is one of the online music lesson services that is paying for itself. I purchased a one-year subscription, but only really dug into it over the past couple weeks.

After all that, I backed this up with a short session on working out a cover song by Oasis. Getting kind of bored with drudging over cover music, so have been taking a long time to learn cover pieces recently.

After all that I went to the Shinto Shrine to pay respects for the new year in good Japanese tradition.
