Lately I've been playing around 4 hours a day. I"m a guard atm while I"m going to school so when I"m at work I put in lots of practice. I don't plug in my guitar but I practice exercises for those hours while I"m at work. I love it.

I used to practice 6-8 hours when I was in school, but maybe 1-2 hours these days.
I think I am getting better than before because I am more focused.
Quality of practice is more important than quantity.
Quality + quantity is the best, though...
