Searchbar'd it and didnt get anything, kinda surprising.

Simple question, How much do you play guitar a day?

I probably play around 2 hours or so when I have time. More than that and I get tired of it.

Do the poll!

I don't even play every day anymore. I've gotten past the OMG I NEED TO GET BETTER stage to the OMG IM GOING TO WRITE MUSIC WHENEVER IM INSPIRED stage.
#4
At least an hour devoted to guitar. Then I fiddle with it idly while watching TV. So anywhere from 1-3 hours, usually.

Guitar? What? I don't play guitar. I have six small children who sound different notes depending on where I touch them. If I touch myself at the same time it makes a pinch harmonic.

this

but i still play frequently, about 20 minutes a day of practice so I don't lose my edge.
Otherwise, if I'm writing a song, I play for a few hours

Im at the I have to get better stage right now because i realized my playing sucked about a week ago so I've been playing until my fingers bleed since then usually about 3 hours a day honestly
#14
Well it depends. During school weeks i get around 3-4, but on Saturdays and Sundays i get a lot. Like 5+ hours.

You sound like Kensai! :S

I work away so in the week I play pretty much from getting home to when I fall asleep, but weekends its whenever I can squeeze it in without getting grumped at by my jealous hubby. Fridays are a write off as I spend the evening on the train. Mondays I work from home, so Suzie sits on my lap at the computer while I 'work'

Probably averages around 3 - 4 hours a day I guess
#23
wow im really suprised people can get to more than 5 hours,
i love guitar but 5 hours?

the longest i've gone was 3 hours, and i was practicing a solo part of a song, what do you guys do in that 5 hours?
I see you're not using the UG black theme

The 9 people who voted 8 hours are either bull****ting, or are mole people.

I can't play for more than 20 minutes or I start feeling like I'm absolutely terrible and I shouldn't be playing at all and then I can't really do anything.
If you're not getting enough gain, you should totally just daisy-chain some solid state amps with headphone jacks together. Remember: Need gain? Use a chain!

Yeah, 11%+ of UG teaches guitar.

Sounds reasonable.

...

Even then, I've not heard of a teacher who teaches guitar for 9 hours a day.

I go out way too much to play more than an hour a day, but I voted not at all, because I really don't have any time these days, although I do like to play when I can
#35
Not much recently...0-30 minutes usually...I just don't have the enthusiasm for it any more. I'm already at the level that I want to be at. I've been focusing more on theory than technical skills.
