    For warmup I usually take 30ish minutes and combine some exercises. Maybe 3-note 7th chords with some tricky arp or interval runs. Just toy with them - mix and mingle. With a micro goal to produce 2-4 bar that would be worth writing down or at least to practice until it grooves. Get some hm.. feelings going on with this instead just doing sports. Feelings and meanings being the target always.
    I was always mentally spent after exerctises when just doing athletics.

    edit:note to self: should really buy that single button mp3 recorder at last fgs.

    Not that it matters, but I just realised that I meant "economy picking" in my earlier reply quoted above.

    While we all eagerly await Reg's technique thread, I've ordered a copy of "Jazz guitar technique" by Andrew Green. It hasn't arrived yet, but I'm looking forward to spending some time really doubling down on my technique with Reg's exercises & this book.
