Just curious really, I get the impression a lot of us probably don't much any more sadly.

I'll pick up my acoustic from time to time and have a quick noodle, but maybe...15-30 minutes a week? If that.

I haven't plugged my electric in since...October, which was when I last played a gig.

I've also not been anywhere else other than 'The Pit' on this forum in years frankly.
I still play guitar pretty much everyday. Mostly acoustic, though I'm trying to form a band at the moment, so my electric should be seeing some more action soon. My electric I know pretty much only use when I'm playing with my old band (I moved quite far away from them about a year and a half ago), which is once every 3 or 4 weeks. That or I'm recording something that needs some distorted guitar.

I'm also picking up a bass this weekend, so I'm going to be playing bass as well.
Hellooo, my name's Ninooooo


Almost everyday.

And I'm still a frequent tabber.

Edit: Maybe about 4 hours a week. If I'm tabbing something, bump that up to a good... 8-12 maybe?

Honestly I seldom have time for/feel the need to play lately. Maybe two to three times a week for a total of about 30 minutes or so.

I stopped playing much when I went from listening to (mostly) rock to (mostly) classical music and jazz. Most music I would play earlier bores me now and the music that doesn't is more or less unplayable on guitar. Or maybe I've just grown up...

It would appear perhaps I am in the one in the minority then

You mean a guitar forum is full of guitarists?!

My playtime ranges from 0-4 hours per week, depending on if I'm motivated. It's recently gone back down to 0 hours after I learned whatever I was learning.
I am a professional musician but I don't really play guitar.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.
Almost every single day, if I go more than a week without a guitar accessible then I seem to get really strong urges and generally end up finding a guitar shop to go to.
I play often. I was recently accepted to two universities after successful guitar auditions, one of whom has offered me a total of $13,000 in annual scholarships + a one time $1250 scholarship
About an or or two a day average.

I need to listen to more music I think though.

Yea, mostly acoustic tho, and the nylon type at that. Want to do more cool finger picking stuff cos I've always lacked in that area

Probably 3-4 hours a week, if I was still in my band you could double that.

I play bass for maybe an hour or two per week. Maybe.
I don't have a ton of free time and I have other hobbies that take priority over it.
A bit more often recently. Mainly just my acoustic though, hardly every plug my electric in. 2-3 hours a week maybe?
I recently bought myself an expensive guitar just so I could motivate myself to play more.

Alas it worked! I stopped for about 1-2 years, now i'm back playing 1-2 hours per day, take occasional days off however.

I regret stopping for those 2 years so god dam much!
At least 30 mins a week, although often more than that. If I get home and no one else is home I like to play electric. Otherwise I'll mess around on my acoustic while on youtube/the internet/UG.
I've been playing a lot more over the past few months. Albeit, it's only about 4-6 hours a week at best because of being busy with school/work/moods-of-not-wanting-to-do-anything.

Edit: I don't know where I get 4-6 hours a week. It's closer to about 10 hours a week.

Not really but I still try to play once in a while. I'm having more fun recording shit and playing with that now.

I incurred the wrath of the Association of White Knights. Specifically the Parent's Basement branch of service.
At least a half hour a day, plus I started teaching full time back in January. So 6-8 hours a day, and usually between 1-4 on my days off to spend some time on personal projects and building curriculum for my students. Teaching has really tightened up and reinvigorated my playing. I also play bass in a band thats starting to take off, so about 6 hours a week of bass.

tldr: so usually a lot, but at least a half hour a day of leisurely noodling, not including work.

I only ask as when I joined this site back in '06 I'd play about 2 hours a day everyday, but that has considerably waned. Especially since graduating...
I play a bit, about half an hour every few days but nothing intensive.

My mate has asked me to start a pop punk band with him though which is something I'd super enjoy and might get me back into playing if I've got something to play for if you get me.

New gear is cool, but it doesn't satisfy you for long.

4 hours a week but it's to get to know my gear better because I like mixing live more than anything else nowadays.

ew, what a disgusting practice.

I'll usually play at least an hour and a half a day. Guitar has gotten more entertaining for me since I've gotten a lot better at playing and bought better gear.
At least a half hour a day I play a few songs or something, I'm not very motivated when it comes to learning theory, it's too much like school.
