Okay I know that this is going to sound dumb as hell but I hope you understand

I am busy playing a piece of music first time ever which has loads of nice broken chords which I am learning as I a great believer that any weak points in playing will show up. So I am starting rather slow getting it all down learn a couple of bars as I am so determined to play a piece of music fully without thinking its too hard or complex

How many how should I do?

Would you learn something new each week along side the old stuff?

What is the best routine for practising broken down into hours?

Just gives me some guild lines as I want to keep playing my guitar I just canít stop learning new things and new ideas. After all this time I am really enjoying playing something just clicks now for the first time in years I feel it no longer a slog and now much more fun

Many thanks

Simon

Always learn new things (techniques, songs, styles) and practice the things you aren't that good at whilst maintaining those things you are. The more you focus and organize yourself the more you're likely to progress.

Also, try not to over do it. Set aside a few hours a day because then you know you won't suffer musical burn out (which is what I do... I'll play constantly for a few days then I'll not play much at all, repeat).

i tend to not think of it, i just play... if i get bored i go on my comp (which is where i play) go on this or play a game, if i lose the game or get bored i got back to plkaying.

I usualy spend an hour a day practicing. I'll do five or ten minutes on scales, or arpeggios, technique etc. but it's always best to apply what you practice.

Doz is right about practicing things you arn't good at and you you notice something your doing wrong zone in on it and spend some time fixing it.

Play a lot.
If you want it, play even when you don't feel it. Play even more when you do.
What did you just play? Oh? Play it again.

Begin to enjoy repetition and listening to yourself.
Be constant, play every day.

Or you could just play casually!

listening to yourself


That is something every one should do. I know when i play something it sounds completely diffret to when i listen to it.

always learn something new. chord progressions are great to go through. dont worry about memorizing in your mind because your ears and your fingers should remember the notes.
