first excuse my english pleas...^^

Its a stupid question, but how much hours of intensive practicing should spend each day to become a serious metal guitarist like Kirk Hammett?

thx

at least 26 a day...

I do think it is a rather suspect sound of metal dildos and horses.

kirk hammett was taught by joe satriani, so about 48 hours a day

until you don't want to practice anymore, and then 2 hours more after that
'never a victim,' the role model said,
bang-bang, the bad guy is dead,
always a rockstar on eMpty TV,
the lesson complete, now the child has needs.

^ lol, pretty much. really though practice as long as you can mentally focus on it. not playing etc, actual PRACTICE and there is a difference. if you can only actually focus on it for 10 minutes a day then do it 10 minutes a day. the reason being if you're not focusing on proper technique and training your fingers and paying attention to all the little nuances then you're essentially not really ingraining something into your hands/muscle memory/brain. in which case you might as well not be practicing at all (might as well just jam a song you know and have fun at that point)

and don't listen to casper, hammetts a pretty good guitarist and personally i find what he does far more aurally pleasing than MAB.

+1 good advice.

It's very simple; quality is much better than quantity.

Here's the best advice I can offer: practice for as long as you're actually thinking consciously about everything you do. Practice doesn't make perfect; practicing perfectly makes perfect.
