Seriously. I gotta practice for only 90 mins? And I usually practice for almost twice that. Guess I better practice less then :P

WHY have a practice schedule, just do what you feel, dont make it like a regime for god sakes. Guitar is meant to be FUN, not a chore.

I don't have a schedual but when I do practice, I will play a song as a warmup, then I'll improv for a while, just having fun. Then after the fun stuff I do exercises, scales, skill building, and technical training.

I usually break it up into
1/4 speed picking and odd chromatic exercises and large interval stretchs
1/4 arpeggios
1/4 breaking down songs I like into exercises for techniques
1/4 review time

Lets see, guitar is not some kind of school project, it is meant to be fun-that is the difference between a good guitar player and a crappy one-a good one has fun while he plays. Thats why bands can get popular with nothing more than power chords.
But yeah, guitar should not a be a chore, it should be fun.

Wouldn't someone who is more dedicated to guitar have a much stricter practicing regime?

I've read stuff about certain players, Zakk Wylde playing 8 hours a day, Steve Vai telling himself he will not eat, sleep, or take a break until he can play a certain lick.

If you're truly dedicated to improving yourself you're not going to just play random stuff the whole time your practicing, you're going to practice each component of what your goal is, or you should to some extent AT LEAST.

Timing yourself isn't always the best of plans, but spending enough time on each subject to stay interested and give yourself a good practice is a good thing.
