Your longest break from guitar?

I started guitar at age 16 and my longest break from even touching it was about 1 week. Felt a little strange coming back to it. I'm 21

I quit for a couple months when I was starting out. Haven't been away since then. Play every day unless I absolutely can't, even if it's just for a little bit.

The longest I've ever been without playing my guitar was the 5 months I was at basic training last summer. I've been playing for 12 years, and for the past 6 years or so I never went a day without playing, except for when I went to basic.

I couldn't tell you. I don't really play guitar an awful lot to be honest with you. I'm sure I've gone a month or two without playing at some point

Probably a week.

However, I only play for about 1-2 hours a day. I should probably focus more on improving my technique (which I do) but every time I go to do sweep picking I feel like I just can't fudging do it

I'm kind of decent with most techniques, but sweep picking is the bane of my guitar existence.

I don't know. Nowadays I mainly just strum at acoustic, I haven't really practised in quite a while.

currently I'm moving, I'm working full time and I'm helping my girlfriend move, so I dont think my guitar has come out of its case in the two weeks since my band recorded our first EP

About a week. It was because I was on vacation for a week. I try to at least touch my guitar once a day.

2 months, when my acoustic was beheaded. I had to wait to get a new one and that took a while.

It was a week and a half I think, I've always been wary of long vacations for this reason, I hate being away from my guitar for longer than a day, and I rarely miss a day of playing.
