One thing I have added to my practice regimen is using James Nyoraku Schlefer's Shakuhachi Workbook.

There are great exercises all through the book on all the scales, intervals and general techniques like meris and korokoro. Here is a picture of the scales I am working on this morning.

You can buy this book at Monty Levenson's It is a great way to develop your tone and technique. I have noticed a big difference in my playing since I started using it.

Now, back to practicing!
