I'm just curious as to how often and how long many of you guys play.. Whether on a daily basis or not..

I fire up my amp and jam at least one of the electrics for at least an hour total(not necessarily all at once) a day... and probably break out the acoustic a few times a week..

A good day is being able to play every guitar for at least a short while and working on some technique/song work, or getting some recording done...


How about everyone else....

Also, might be good to state how long you've been playing for..

Daily/Bi-daily for at least an hour. A solid hour.

Usually i play for 5 hours at a time. I switch between acoustic and electric.
#3
I'm trying to play at least 1h each day, usually more. Sometimes i'm up to 6h+, but that's maybe once a week. And i'm just playing some fun songs, playing around a bit and having fun with the guitar.
And i've been playing for a bit over a year...

I play 2+ hours everyday.

I switch between playing my acoustic and electric.

around 2 hours every couple of days,..

round 4 every weekends..

playing 7-8 years now
play EVERY SINGLE DAY if possible, like if im at home i will play, for an average of 3-4 hours every day, but with breaks so i dont injure my hand/wrist muscles. Used to alternate electric/acoustic every day but havn't got round to restringing acoustic.
I probably dont spend as much time as i should on technique or theory/scaley stuff usually i spend a good 80% of the time playing chilis songs or something to sing along to or just random soloing

^^^^^sounds like me man.. And sometimes I go through these long phases of intense writing, recording, working on technique, just playing around, or not playing very much at all..... Aside from those very rare periods that I don't play much though, I try to at least get in an hours worth of jaming every day... With CD's, or learning songs etc...

I have no sense of time whatsoever so gauging how long I play is hard to determine. I could just be trying to learn something and it would be hours before I finish... or I could be playing for what seems like hours to me and only fifteen minutes has passed.

No sleep for the past few years has really ****ed with my internal clock.


Also, I think about guitar all the time if that counts for anything.

I play 1-2 hours per day on workdays. Anywhere from 2-5 hours a day on days off. Now and then I go through periods of feeling like a crappy player, where I play maybe a total of 2 hrs a week.

I've been playing for 11 months. Until 2 months ago, I was acoustic only. Still only play electric about 50% of the time.

On weekdays at least an hour on an electric and probably about another 30 mins on an acoustic which I leave in various places around the house. If I'm working and I want a break, I play acoustic.

On weekends, anything from 3 hours to 6 overall.

Really depends on how I'm feeling, sometimes I might only play a couple of songs and then not play anymore, some days I might spend a while improvising whilst doing something else, other days I might play whole sets and spend ages practicing techique and soloing.

Unless I'm not in the house, Around 6 hours of playing.
That's everyday, But on some days around 8/9 hours of playing.
And that's being going on non-stop for around 9 months.
#28
I usually play around 1-2 hours while just practicing songs, scales and technique. Weekends I tend to play around 3 hours taking breaks.
#29
I play a few hours per day, weekends at most 5 hours.

Most of the time I try to play new stuff.
#30
I pretty much play guitar every chance I get and even when I don't have the chance to play guitar, I look for a way to get to a guitar as quick as possible and play. Can be a problem at work but ya know...reality sucks, much rather get lost in my sounds.

I dig that man.. I'm self employed and work from home, so I'm able to get away and fire up the gear for a little bit when I'm not too busy.....

Was worse when I was in my last band though.... music consumed me and work really suffered from the writing process lol

Play at least every other day for about an hour total. I usually just play along with songs, or just jam some riffs I make up.

I've played for about 4 years.
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.

I play when I can, and don't really stop until I'm really bored (so 2-3 hours).

Played for around a year and a quarter.
