  • Goal - 1 hour per day doing some work on the movie:
Started Karen Everett DOVES work:
DOVES is an acronym which stands for the Director’s Outcome, Vision and Editorial Statements. Created by New Doc Editing to kick off the editing phase of the film, its purpose is to clearly establish the director at the helm, define the director’s goals and vision, and act as a compass that keeps the entire post-production team working harmoniously on the same film.
  • Time:  30 minutes

  • Goal:  30 minutes per day basic music work:

Warm ups (MojoCaster)
Granby Street (lyric swap)
"Talkin' Loud and Sayin' Nothing" - Living Colour version
"So What" - Miles Davis
Total time:  30 minutes
  • Goal:  15 minutes per day (minimum) exercise:

D-sus riff work (D-sus-Em-C-D)
R&B chord work

"Dies Irae" work on the MojoCaster. Played the piece all the way through repeatedly (15-20 times), then focused on rough spots, like the octave climbs and the dyad moves.
Total time:  45 minutes

Good day overall.  Hit all the high points.  The guitar work with the MojoCaster was a good break.  The Verdi work as well as the warm ups were good opportunities to work on the two scale fretboard.  Hung out with Don Mark at his CD release party.  Had a great time and got a chance to hang out with Chris Schafer, Mike Purdhum and Bob Boyer.
