Well I played games before guitar, and I know that it does suck up alot of time. But just tell yourself that your ARE going to play ** hours a day and do it.

it depends of how much you will play video games, like when you have a free time you will have to make a choice. Make the good one. please

A recent study shows that 8% of teenagers listen to nothing but music with guitars in it. Put this in your sig if you're one of the 92% who aren't close-minded morons.

I've been addicted (yes really I think) to video games since birth it seems, and I still manage to get in 2-4 hours a day of guitar if I feel like it. But it's really freaking hard sometimes lol. I just end up doing whatever I feel like doing. Whatever is more important to you is what you'll end up doing.

I've been playing guitar for over 2 and a half years, but I've played video games since I was a wee lad. I tend not to play many video games anymore (Besides my favourite games), I play guitar a lot more.

Funny that you mentioned it because me (rhtyhm) and the lead guitarist always plays xbox 360 after practise. So no, if you're passionate enough it won't suck up time.

nah i find it hard to play video games anymore ill sit down and play for like a half hour then i dont play again for a week, i do love to play guitar hero though i can play that for a couple hours

what you should do is play your guitar song much your fingers feel like they are going to drop of with pain, then play the x box, allthough i personally recommend the nintendo wii or some form of playstation.

Oh man, I've been playing videogames since I was able to move my hands.

I started out with videogames, guitar is something relatively recent for me.


One of the first things I figured out how to play on the guitar was the tetris themesong. Hah.

I spend way more time on video games than guitar. I also get in about 2 hours of guitar practice a day. Plus if you get an Xbox 360 you get bored real quick with the games because it only has 2 good ones. Get PS3.

I just got a 360 last week and am not on my guitar as much as i was - usually 3-4 hours a day, but probably about half that at the moment.
Once i've completed gears of war, rainbow six and dead rising the novelty value will probably go away and i'll be back playing guitar as much as i was.
