do any of you find it difficult to practice for a long time on school nights? how often do you usually play for? i usually on school nights play for about an hour or hour and a half......but on weekends i can usually get in 4 to 5 hours.

4-6 hours for me, but that's cause I don't give a rats ass about homework so yeah. On weekends even I think it's obscene the amount of time I spend on the guitar, but that's if I get the chance, because sometimes work will get in the way. If you really want to spend more time on guitar all you have to do is this, set everything aside (other than homework which I should be doing) and just play man.

I usually get in a good 2 or three hours on school nights. I play as long as i can until my mom tells me i have to focus on my studies and threatens to take my guitar. Then i stop for 30 minutes and plug back in on low volume.

Well i'm a freak so I play guitar/bass 'till at least 1am on school nights. And if not, then I put in a Dream Theater or Rush DVD. I really regret it in the morning though when I can't get up.
#6
On school nights, well I get home at 3:30, then I do homework till 4:30 (usually). then I start playing at 5, until 9. So I guess no.
and weekends I get up to 14 hours sometimes.

Just cut out the useless stuff. Go home, do your homework right away. Don't have music on, don't have television going. Once the homework is knocked out, play the guitar. Go to bed, repeat.

School doesn't really keep me from playing, but not being home does. Friends always want me to go some where, then I'll come home at 2 and pass out.
#13
I'm out of school but for the past week I've been waking up at 9, practicing until 3 with one band, and then practicing from 4 to 8:30 with another every day. That's hard. Especially when both bands are based almost an hour's drive away from my home. Luckily I have plenty of places to stay.

I practice every day for 2 hours. If I cant play it all at once I break it up to 30 mins per session but adds up to 2 hours. On slow days i'll play more but I also have other instruments that I have to practice for a longer period of time. But I make time to practice. It helps that at school I have a guitar class where the teacher is very strict with his lesson plans.

i envy you for your guitar class, in school nights i practice at least 1 1/2 hours

I could probably play 6 hours every single day of the week, and more on weekends. I usually play about 2 hours on school nights though.

EDIT: But if I don't have tons of time on weekdays, I always try to get in a few minutes at least, just to play around a bit.

i tend to play about 30-60 minutes on weekdays. i could play more if i didn't goof off and didn't have mucho homework. ap calculus is no good. on the weekends, though, i will play for the entire day sometimes.

i find it easier to play on school nights, mainly because i usually have spent a bit of time at school thinking about something playing guitar related (like a lick, a riff, chord position, chord prog, etc.) and i spend a while fiddling around with that.

it's incredibly hard for me to practice on school nights. 2 honors classes, history notes, english stuff, and pre-calc bust my ass 24/7. to top it all off, i have to get up at 5:45 AM to go for 0 period weight training.


oh god, i'm so sore, and it's only the second day.

2-3 hours each night. Not that hard. Depending on what mood i'm in, I'll play either guitar or Bass.
