About an hour a day. If I'm recording guitar than it's more like 6 hours a day, haha.

! hour a day usually, perhaps more on weekends and holidays.

I always pick up the guitar, say "Oh I'll be ten minutes on this" and before long and hour or two have passed!

No two days are the same. One day I might just pick up a guitar for 5 minutes, another day I might play all day.

Varied, but usually a total of about 2 hours a day. Maybe an hour. Or some days, not at all because my hands are too cold (it's winter at the moment and I have no heating) or I've got RSI again. That's the usual excuse.
Time is a great teacher. Unfortunatly, it kills all of its pupils.
#11
I said 3 hours in the poll but it is various by the week. I play like 2-4 (each day) hours on Monday to Thursday and Friday to Sunday I play like 3-7 (each day) hours.

I dont really play for hours on end, i'll pick up my guitar maybe 20 times a day, play for 10-20 mins give it a rest, repeat all day.
If i'm working however i'll barely touch it till the weekend then i'll try to get some writing done.

4-6 hours a week sounds about right. I'm really not practising as much as I used to but I'm getting a bit of a routine going again.

I always have my guitar on my lap, so i voted 5 hours +

Why, my pasty danish cracker, I believe you've got it!
#18
I haven't played in ages, probably because I've moved on to keyboard. When I get around to recording something, I'll pick it up again just for that.
#20
Less than an hour a day. I tend to graze on my guitar playing rather than having one extended sit-down. I'm still better than any guitarist my age that I know personally so I must be doing something right. I sound like an arrogant prick but .

Used to play heaps, now I'd be lucky to get in an hour a week.

#23
I'd go with 3 - 5 hours a day depending on my mood. So I chose 4.

I've been playing a lot more this week than I have in a while.

Same, I'm on half term at the moment and have started to get back into guitar. I went with 2-4 hours a day. In the last couple of weeks I was slowing down on guitar. But i'm now back to playing guitar more often. And not so much of the computer.
#28
When I first started it was about 8 hours a day.

Now it's down to about 3ish...

Now I have nothing to do, I average about 5 or 6 hours a day, except weekends. But normally it's about 2 hours.

Not much since I dedicate all my time to college

I don't even think I know how to play guitar anymore

Barely any, and it shows. I need to warm up for an hour or two now just to get my technique back. But at least I haven't lost it. I'm going to be making some changes, and browsing UG less.

Virtually none. Don't have the time. All my time is taken up on composition projects.

...modes and scales are still useless.

As much as I can.
I usually muster about an hour of actual playing (setting all my gear up like and playing through some excersises, songs, improvisation etc) a day, but I'll also have it next to me while I'm doing other stuff (TV, computer etc) so I can just run scales or something to improve my muscle memory and finger strength.
So it can be anywhere from 2 hours to 4 hours depending. If I get a burst of inspiration I'll spend longer focusing, which is always great, but a lot of the time I can't find the time to play it endlessly.
#36
I'm not really sure. my guitar is right beside my computer and I'm on my computer all the damn time, so it's hard to tell how much I'm playing. I picked 3 hours though
#38
I do about four hours a day during the school year. On holidays, and breaks I do about 8 hours a day.
#40
4-6 Hours a week

I should probably play more, but I get tied up with school work, karate and job.
