Now, I'm totally comfortable with my playing and practicing at the moment, but these past few months, I've been worrying about how much I practiced last year. I know it's irrational, since my memory isn't perfect, and I can't pick details out in my head like that, but does anyone else ever worry about how many hours they've logged from the past?

No, I just play as much as I can. Music is the only thing I don't worry about.


Agreed. Looking back over the last 11 months or so I can definitely admit there were times I slacked off and wouldn't play for weeks on end, but when I did play it was because I wanted to and enjoyed playing, and that's what matters most, imo.

Regardless, I've started playing everyday lately and I've noticed a large improvement in my technique, so there's no doubt you get back what you put into your playing.

I found that too much practice was turning me dull in my playing. I took a break for about 2 months then came back to playing and wrote some pretty good stuff.

No, because it's not only irrelevant, there's absolutely sod all you can do to change it.

Yeah, I worry a lot about how much time I put into listening to music rather than actually playing music.

Time's a bitch.

No

why worry about stuff you can't change?

My suggestion: Play your guitar & enjoy it.... don't waste time worrying about it.

Are you worried about getting your 10,000 hours in? Is that what you're getting at?
That number's just a guideline. Nothing magical happens at hour 10,000; you've just done a shit-ton of practicing. Just keep practicing and playing, and don't worry about logging anything.
