Every morning by 8:00 A. M, I have my coffee and start one hour of practice. The very first piece I play each day is “Chartreuse.”

It just seems to be a pleasant way to start the day.

I don’t often practice scales and arpeggios anymore but I did quite a lot when I was younger.

These days my practice regimen is mostly playing through the many solo acoustic guitar pieces I have accumulated both original and pieces written by others.

“Chartreuse” is, like much of my solo guitar music, both jazz and classical influenced.

This piece has a little Chopin in it, I guess.

Besides Django, I would say Chopin has been in the background of a lot of my stuff.
