I get a full week to practise as I only work weekends.

So on average I practise around 3-5 hours a day.

And 10 hours is alot! Do you have a life? LOL (Don't take that as an offence!)

Well I try for at least an hour but if I'm lucky I may get 1.5 or 2... usually I get less especially lately. Between, work, the dogs, the boyfriend and just everyday life guitar has become a luxury for me that is not always enjoyed. However I am trying...

I'd say anywhere from 2-6 hours, it used to be a lot more when I was just learning, but I have been walking around my house with my guitar strapped on more and more these days(that hikes up the hours by a considerable amount).

Depends a lot.. One day it's half an hour, and next day, several hours tongue.gif
It all depends on what shows is on TV, and how much my fingers hurt from other practices tongue.gif

No I am not a full shredder yet, I have been playing for only a year. But in my terms its like 3-4 years. I can play many intermediate songs though and some advanced solos which are epic smile.gif

I work in a very demanding finance related job, so I don't have much time left for guitar. So what I do is practice 10 lessons per day, a couple of times each, and then just hang out with the guitar for as much as half an hour. So I would say that I play like an hour and a half per day (per night actually wink.gif ). Then on weekends I try to learn one or two lessons so that I can incorporate them to my GMC repertoir. I am playing very well 21 lessons now. GMC is amazing man... sometimes I'm playing a lesson and when I finish I go like "man, I couldn't do this 3 months ago!" So I will take this opportunity to thank all the instructors. You guys are amazing!!!!!!

2 hours a day is what I like to do and usually manage it. What I like to do now, after being here for a while is go back to some of the older lessons. They seem so easy but I still have a long way to go. On the weekends I am practicing more than usual cuz I like to rock out!

Had a guitar hanging, just about waist high, and we are going to play these things until the day we die.
