I try to play the whole setlist of our band every day. But the enthusiasm of this "everyday the same" gets low. Then i try to create new songs.
But it's just about one hour a day and it's not real practising. So that may explain why i'm not getting better, although i play for some years.

I hate playing the same song over and over... it sucks. But when i play live i can acually enjoy it because of the energy.. it dosent bore me as much

i play for prolly 3 hours a day , ill just be sitting on my computer and be like "dude , i didnt know i had a guitar!" and start playin ,this happens abotu every 30 minutes . playing standing up is easier for me , use to be harder but all these months standing up pulloffs and hammerons seem easier. ive only been playing for almost a year so maybe that's why i play a little more . dont know , plus i have about 10 hours on my hands. also im getting to the point where i can just jam and make up shit as i go so its funner

When I play I usually stick on a slayer minidisc i compiled with 30 songs i can play on it. Some I have smooth, but others are a bit sloppy. I put it on random and just play through it, the easier ones are like breaks, and you gradually get better at the sloppy ones.

I dont practice scales or exercises any more - i don't have the motivation/time to do alot more with my guitar playing. i spend more of my free time juggling these days. Go circus boy!

Practising more would be so much easier without school, friends, and all this other shit. If i could i would go 5 hours a day but im lucky to get 1 in.

I play about 1 to about 3 hours every day, it all depends how inspired i am at the time, i have a figer/model of Jimi Hendrix on my desk, when i look at it it makes me want to practice more.

I practice a minimum of 1.5 hours a day. Plenty more on the weekends. There are so many things to learn out there. I feel like I waste a day if I don't practice. I practice all the time standing up. (except for those 3-5 hour sessions.

at least 2 hours a day but most of the time 3 (especially since a take lesson). I play more during the week-end. I do skip a day sometimes during the week.

1-2 hours a day for me generally. 30-60 mins of real practice.. tough licks im not fast enough on yet, chromatics with the metronome, sweeps, etc.. pretty much just metronome work for an hour a day to build chops. another 30-60 minutes playing new and old songs for fun.

i try very hard to play daily.. occasionally something will come up and i'll go somewhere or not be able to play for a few days.. i hate that. it really seems to set me back as far as skills go.

I mostly play about an hour a day but lately i haven't been doing that due to exams and spending a lot of time at the gym. Anyways i usually just practice scales and learn new ones, and then i'll piss around with them and perhaps solo over a backing track, then i'll play some songs and then carry on trying to learn Symbolic (the whole album) by Death.
