After working with chords, CAGED system techniques, pentatonic and major scales I find that I require a break. But a break for me, is simply another obsession. Football is out of the question in March. So I checked Netflix on my Roku plugin and checked my list.
Usually stand up comedy is my “go to” format for pissing away a few hours. I have watched all of Bill Burr’s specials, he is kind of like a funnier, younger version of me with worse language…so I think.
Anyway I saw “House of cards”. I had heard of this from somewhere, where I do not recall, but the political slant appealed to me at the moment.
Kevin Spacey is pretty good so accepting that he was in it I gave it a try.
So I started watching House of cards starting at Season 1, Episode 1. BINGO!
Filled my obsession with ease with no room left over for anything else as far as television goes.
So what is my point? You need an obsession too. If you work a full time job and maintain a home with all that goes with that, you have little time left to practice. And even then, you get bored with it.
So, for me, I plan my practice routine around watching episodes of this great political drama, House of cards.
Find an obsession to offset your obsession, works for me!
A ruthless politician will stop at nothing to conquer Washington, D.C., in this Emmy and Golden Globe-winning political drama.
