And how long do you practice per session ?

I practice about every day, on weekends usually 10 hours a day because I have the time.
On week days (school days) probably about 3 - 6 hours a day.

The way I look at it, you can NEVER EVER practice too much !

yeah thats true lil man but wait till you get to highschool....you'll wanna practise but you also wont wanna pass up on opportunitys to get laid or drunk etc lol. i usually practise anywhere from an hour to 2 every day but somedays i wont play at all; there reaally is no sort of routine for me.

I usually get an hour at least a day... but sometimes I practice like... all day for a good few days. Sometimes I don't play very much. It just changes all the time.

Yeah I'm the same, sometimes I go a day without playing, then the next day my fingers feel so fast

I try to practice every day. I want to be able to progress and stuff quickly. I only play when I want to or if I have that urge, i don't force myself into practicing, that probably isn't good..

so i was pretty dedicated for a while but then put it down for a while when i went to collage and worked full time. I did not pick up a guitar for a couple of years. man, you get rusty. Now I'm back playing again and set aside 30 minutes a day a least to practice, warm ups and scales. more if i want, if i miss a day, the screw it I start fresh the next day

Aha, my dad knows ALL about that XD He just messes around with it, he knows music, but not guitar.
I find when you don't play for a while it feels kinda strange for some reason.

I personally have gotten into just sitting in my room for hours on end and playing while I'm waiting for people to message me back on Nexopia and such, but to really out a time that I play everyday, I just can't

Lol, it's because people probably have better things to do.

I, however, am not one of those people - so here I am. Wasting my day on guitar forums. :D

LOL I usually post on the weekend because I'm really busy with school. I'm guessing the time difference from the locations we post allows me to miss posts on a thread I created.Guitarboy must have a lot of time because he has'nt been here that long and he already has more threads than afro raven(who used to reign supreme on this forum)

School sucks. I still have.. 6 years and four months about left of school, then college...
I do have lots of time cause I never ever do my homework (I don't have that much anyways) and nothing ever goes on around here so it's pretty boring.

Ha wow. I am a senior....i use to play like 5-6 hours a day when i was in the early years of highschool, but now i only get...lik 2 if im lucky! but im in a band too, so we practise like 4-5 hours on the weekends, and we spend 1 at gigs, so its not so bad. but i remember almost giving up guitar and selling it because there was way to much to do! (get high, party, drink, go the park with a few friends get drunk and smoke cigars at 2:00 am....oh good times...)

I have college, but I still have plenty of time to play due to not really having much of a social life. I only work one night a week aswell.

I say GS is lucky cause I WANT a job. having no money sucks.
But if you have a good job and work one night a week and get good pay then that is a bonus.

Any given minute I have free time I'm playing my guitar. I love it. I breath it. I try to do a little songwriting too, but I've found out quickly that that's something you can't force, so I jam hour after hour, if I'm not at work, school or church.

About 6 hours a day minimum. And thats in a prep school on normal days... On weekend and on break I just sit on a spinny chair or place my self on the computer and play for like 14-15 hours, with a few stops for food and showers... (try to get food right after getting out of the shower so you can eat it well drying/getting dressed).

I have an addictive personality, and am easily hurt, thus I'm not too social, I have allot of people who would be my friends but I don't really enjoy hanging out with them, and this I just kinda play guitar... In reallity, it's like some super potent drug to me, except I don't have to pay other then the guitar it's self... :)

Ahh, I've fallen out of my practice routine again. It keeps happening, but I suppose I've had a lot of college work to do anyway.

I still play for hours when I can, but with a wife and four kids it can be hard to find the time every day.

I wish I could practice as much as some of you but I usually only get an hour of guitar time a day. I have 3 hours of homework most days, so I don't get much free time during the week. :(
