I just play when I want to play which is all the time. I don't even know how much time I practice I play a lot though. Maybe 2 hours minimum.

Like 2-3 hours but not in one shot. I will pick it up for a half hour to an hour a few times day.

Well, in holidays mostly more than 2h per day. I'd say like 3-4h. On weekends mostly the same.

But the rest of the week less than 2h, blame the school .

acually if the played from the time the got home from school untill they fell asleep they could do it...though they would develop carpel tunnel and their hands would fall off...then the yedi would smell the freshly fallen hand and come up to him and eat him...then call for back up from big foot and they would eat him together. then gandalf would come and slay them both. after gandalf does his victory dance, herman li battles gandalf and defeats him. then the russians launch a nuclear bomb into space and blow up the moon...then the moon would hit earth, causing it to spin out of control untill it hit the sun. then the world would be no more. so yeah...i dont think they play 7 hours a day...or the world would have hit the sun by now.

Better than hooked on crack, I suppose. I'd rather know my kids are safe at home beating their meat than out in the world robbing old women for their crack fix.

I met this chick I really liked and wanted to practice sex, so I practiced on some guy I met at a gas station...

3-4 probably.

my practice time usually revolves around my roomates...if theyre home and want to go out and do something, I get in only ~1 hr. if no one comes home for 7hrs ill play for 7 lol.

Totally depends. When I've got a free day, 6+ hours. When I've got a semi busy day, 2-3 hours. When I'm up to my neck with work, maybe an hour of acoustic to chill with.

1-2 hours, 1 hour playing all kind of exercises and the other hour just having fun playing songs or jamming.
Besides being a guitar player, I'm a big fan of the guitar. I love that damn instrument. Steve Vai

I struggle to find much more than one hour at any given time, if I'm lucky.

I'd say I average about 20 minutes every two or three days. Poor, I know. Sadly as work takes up more time, guitar must take a back-seat...
#22
i cant go a day without playing. its kill.

so probably around 1-2hrs a on school days and more on weekends. usually like half playing songs and half coming up with my own stuff. idc i dont have a schedule. as long as i play until im satisfied for the day.
