In all honesty bro, i get what your looking for bro.

But the true answer is within you, no one can tell what to practice, how to practice. Im sure you know your weaknesses, prioritize them. What schedule may work for someone else may not necessarily work for you, furthermore, the more you play the longer our practice sessions will be.

Anyway thats what i believe, take it or leave it. i hope i have been a bit helpful.

Keep rockin man!

for me, a good practice schedule starts when you have free time, and a free mind.


once you have that,

make a list of things you want to learn:

player styles
songs
riffs
licks
etc


then do a little of each everyday



something what helped me learn, was playing along with other songs...i would spend hours jamming to iron maiden tracks just soloing over the entire song since they had easy simple progressions!

practice doesnt have to be structured, it just needs to happen,



and the most important thing:

patience

it will take you far!

just severy pay attention to ur fingers while playing any lesson u want...
i recomend exercises galore, but mix it up with fun jams
exercises may includes finger exercises, scales and chirds
jams are lessons or songs or free solo
then cool down with theory
or u can learn theory along the way with the exercises
like said above, the schedule depends on u
whatever u feel like benifits u the most, then do that...for me its exercises

JUST FOCUS

Yea man, its hard for anyone to truly answer this question for you. The best advice given was to make a list of what you know needs work, and work on it a little everyday. Thats what I try to do.
The reason its hard to get a good answer that'll suit you is because some people can practice maybe an hour or 2 a day, some maybe have only like 5 hours to practice throughout a whole week, and some people have nothing much to do, so they can practice an ungodly 4-6 hours a day (bless those who can smile.gif )
and on top of that, everybody is at different levels of playing and experience, and some people are naturally good at certain things, and others are good at different things, so practice differs from person to person a lot.

Seriously, I think Marc gave good advice that you can try out to see if it suits you smile.gif

There is not really a practice schedule that works for all of us. You have to see how much time you can invest, you have to see what styles or techniques you want to learn. Try to make a list with goals you want to reach soon and some long term goals, and then focus on them. It doesn't really get you far if you practice something for 2 or 3 days, and then skip to something completely different.
