Trust me, I've asked myself the same question. And the bottomline is, if you're asking that question, then u need to practive more.
#7
not that much, I mostly just noodle around. But everyday at least an a few hours, in intervals.
#10
5 to 6 hours on a good day, but it can vary wildly. Somedays I can only cram in an hour or so. Those, my friend, are not my best days.
#11
I play 25 warm up excercises. First i play them on the metronome at 250 bpm then i play them at my own speed which is a lot faster. It takes my about 30 minutes. I do it twice a day then when i'm done i practice the song i'm trying to learn

Does any of your social lives suffer? I mean i have lots of friends always wanting to do **** and its kinda hard for me to practice daily but i do put in long hours when i can.
#15
Currently I'm jamming for 4 hours a day at a summer camp, and then I practice for a couple hours at home or until my fingers hurt too much (I just got a steel string, it's a bitch on my fingers). I always try to practice at least 2 hours a day. But I get lazy...
I will show you something different from either
Your shadow in the morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you
I will show you fear in a handful of dust
#17
well considering that half the people in here practice 6 hours a day lmao, i dont have time like that, i practice about an hour or 2 a day hopefully and its plenty... u can never practice to much, but 1 to 2 hours a day of practice on anything your trying to improve on and u will get better, such as baseball, the sport that takes up my entire day lol
#19
I dunno... 3-5 hours... less in the summertime...

Mommy and daddy. I don't believe anyone who says they sat down and practiced for 16 hours. There is no way the did it straight or actually practiced the whole time. Even still, get outside some. Air is nice.

An hour or two every other day or so. Pretty much anything else has to take priority over playing. work, relationships, food, friends, etc.

I practice whenever I want to play guitar or have nothing to do, and usually when I'm not playing guitar I'm either readong up on guitars on the internet or in town whichc i always quickly look in the guitar shop and I'm constantly listening to music which involves guitars
