I need help setting out a 'timetable' for guitar. I play for around 2-3 hours a day.

Would it be better to play a certain technique for a while? Or play a few in short amounts of time? As well, I practice on an acoustic (technique wise), is that any good? Then I play songs on my electric.

I just need some tips on what to do, and if someone could set out a rough routine for me, that'd be awesome.

i usually practice chords then scales and then i practice songs i know, then i try to learn songs by ear, and then i just try to write songs. www.blackbeltguitar.com

I've finally finished my exams today, so I have three months before Uni where I can get about six hours of practice a day depending on work.

What I'm going to try is something along these lines:

Learn song on Electric
Learn song on Acoustic/Singing
Learn song on Piano/Keyboard
Learn song on Drums
Theory
Guitar scales
Sweeping
Improvising/Jamming
Ear training

I'll warm up first, then do each of these for about 40 minutes, with short breaks every now and then. I will vary the order each day to hopefully prevent it from getting stale. A few of those areas overlap as well, and I no doubt will make changes to what I do.

Obviously you may not play those instruments, but this might give you a few ideas.

Yeah I guess I am compared to much of the world, but pretty average for Australians. I work in a shop, my dad's a shelf packer and my mum's a teacher. I have photos of my gear in my profile if you want to take a look.
