For instance, why does it take somebody less practice to be better than somebody who practiced more? (this can be in anything, sports, music, academics)

Like if person A has been playing guitar everyday for 5 years. He practiced hard everyday, and he convinces his friend, person B to start guitar too. After only 2 years, person B is a better guitar player than person A, even though person A has been playing for 3 more years than him.

Why is this?

everyone's different, natural talent, diet, health, physical shape, determination, consistency, work ethic

you shouldn't even have to ask this question

A mix of genetic predisposition and environment.

Person A was obviously using 'playing his guitar' as a metaphor for masturbation

thanks to genetics, I have no talent at all in anything. It takes me forever to learn anything. It took me three years to learn how to ride a bike, I still cant swim, I doubt I can even tie my shoes correctly and I excel in nothig. Im not saying that I want this and I dont want this to sound whiny, but I dont even deserve to be alive.

One of them might be shit at practicing.

And all those things rely on some amount of intelligence or physical fitness/aptitude, so that also.

Maybe TS uses 'playing his guitar' as a metaphor for masturbation.

Maybe TS is Person A.

Maybe TS practiced hard everyday, but couldn't match Person B's epic masturbation skills.

i think its about how much the person wants to do it and howmuch work they put into it

ive beenb playing for 3 years and am better than alot of people i know that have been playing twice as long but ive practice much harder than alot of them and studied thoery etc.

and then again i suck at the piano even thought ive been playing for about half year becasue i spent most of my time on guitar

Intelligence. If you are stupid, its best for you to stay at home and do nothing.

Some people just have more talent.

Except talent means being naturally better at a thing, so you just said "Some people are better at things because some people are just better at things".

Will to sacrifice 'x' in order to do 'y' better etc.

something like this is going on with me and my friend aaron. i've been playing guitar for 3 years, aaron for 2. im a much better guitarist than aaron. aaron practices for maybe 2 hours a day, i skip days at a time some times. i blame his bad habits he refuses to get out of, maybe thats the case with the example in the first post?

Because some people practice guitar until 2 in the morning. Why? We love it
