15 minutes

Goal:  15 minutes per day working on the score for the movie
“Dies Irae” – 20X  in groups of five, allowing me to focus on execution
“Dies Irae” – Concentration on octave climbs, the dyads and chord beginning and ending.
“Granby Street” – On the MojoCaster, focus on lyrics, tempo and ending
Am – D7 chord progression, pulling in palm mute A and A octave and D bass.  This progression continues to fall into place. 
A Dorian riff  - this riff is small compared to the chord progression built around it.  I should multitrack this riff against the chrod progression.
E – B/D# - C#min – A  R&B chordal riff work.  Focus on smooth transitions and tone.
R&B riff work from Gospel Skillz DVD
Total Time:  1 hour
