I would say at least 4 or 5. I'll play for a while, put it down, and then pick it back up.
This cycle continues for hours.

usually i get home from work, play for a half hour or so, take a break to smoke a joint, and then go back to it for however long I feel like. So usually twice.

I would of said that if you asked me that beofre September, but since I have been doind Music Practise, I only pick up the guitar 2-3 a day after college, since I play at college apart from Thursday to Sunday then I pcik it about 3-4 times a day.
#9
I normally do 2/3 sessions a day, each is planned to be about 30 minutes, but I always end up playing for around an hour (no harm there then).

Yeah, I always have my guitar in my hands. Sometimes I'll just be sitting at the computer browsing UG, unplugged Strat in my lap.

Then I'll get an insatiable urge to play it loud, and relocate to my room.

So like, 5 or more times a day, I'll pick 'er up.

Usually more than 5 times a day. Outside of my normal 2-3 hour practice, if a song pops into my head, or if I am listening to a song and want to play it, I pick up my guitar and play it, and this happens at least 5 times a day.
#19

Now that I have a Fuzz factory ( HELL YES) I have the urge to keep it in my hands.

there are times that I just don't feel like playing, and if I do, I'll feel like I betrayed myself...I uhnno though.

but yeah, like every 15 minutes, I'll hear a song and feel inspired to play.

[quote="'[VictorinoX"]']once I get back from classes, I chill at the computer with it strapped around me.

This is what I usually do. I get back to my room after I'm done classes and I'll pick it up and play it, put it down, surf for a while, and then play a little more, unless I think of a song I want to learn, in which case (depending on how much work I want to put into the song), I will either play for another hour or so, or just put it back on my lap and keep browsing.

5+.
I have a guitar strapped on nearly all the time when I'm at home. I generally play for 5-6 hours per day when I can, but at the moment work is taking up alot of my time, so it's more like 2-3 hours.
#32
I usually play a two hour session every day. Occasionally I will play two seperate sessions, but not often.

I haven't touched a guitar in weeks.

More than 5 times, cause after a while I feel the need to get a drink or shower or somthing... there are those times where I play for a good 3-4 hours all at once and dont put it down. Sometimes I also just grab it to feel the strap on my shoulder cause its kinda nice with a light guitar. Right now im just sitting with it playing along to songs that come on my media player, or just letting it hang.
