One hour or less. I may go a few days without playing. Too much study to do instead.

Not as much as Id like or need to. About an hour or less a day if you average it across the whole week.

Not being able to find band members to play with has really killed my desire to play, and although I know there is stuff out there I can't play, I don't really have any desire to learn it. I guess I'm in a rut.

dude your in socal....and we play similar genres.....

Between an hour or two a day. Don't have a band or anything. I usually just work on some covers, usually stuff like Opeth, Dream Theater, or Porcupine Tree while writing trying to write some heavy progressive stuff myself.

I try to get in at least an hour or two, but on average it's probably more in the 2-3 hour range. Some days more, some days less. Depends if the mood strikes me that day.

not too much, maybe a half hour if I'm noodling around, for the most part. However, if I have a gig where I've been hired to play for somebody or have some tricky new songs to learn (I play in functions bands), I'll spends hours making sure I really understand my parts and everybody else's. Spend a decent amount of time with my main working band too, as well as practices for working gigs I get hired for

I pick it up every now and then, which amounts to about 1-2 hours throughout the day. I don't have a dedicated time for playing guitar.

It really depends on what's going on in my life, if I've just got a new album/just done a gig I'll feel enthused to practise more if my social life is taking off/I feel like shit I'll play less but It never goes less than 3-4 hours a week.

I used to play about three hours a day but at the moment I'm in China and I'll be here until February next year while all of my gear is in the US. I have a junky no name acoustic for when I really get the urge to play but it's a very unpleasant instrument.

1 hour at max. It's more than enough for you to record guitar covers, or practice new skills/techniques/licks. Of course, it'd be much longer if I'd be doing live performances.

Depends on the day, I don't have a "routine" where I dedicate x hours per day.

Sometimes I'll go a couple of days without playing, not usually more than 2 though, and other days I'll play for 6 hours or so.

Not that much, I haven't played over 2 hours in one day for 3 months, I could play 6 hours a day if I wanted to, but it's just not that fun anymore.
