how long do you guys (that are good guitarists) practice for? i've been playing for 1 1/2 years now, playing about 1 or 2 hours a day, and i've made good progress but i don't know if it's enough to become a serious guitarist

3-4 hours a day of serious practice and by serious I mean you actually know what you are ****ing doing not just strumming chords and playing random notes.

Any more than two hours a day is almost impossible for me, as I have a job, a girlfriend, and a life to worry about.

Although that's only SELF practicing time. You also have to set time aside for BAND practice, which is a five or six hour block twice or thrice a week.


It's all about what you want to acomplish and where you think you're going. For a PART TIME player or a HOBBY player, an hour or two will suffice.
