in my band, if we don't practice twice a day then we usually practice once a day.... other than that, i occasionally practice on my own. and every week i have private lessons(i'm still taking em' but this dude is soooo good).
insomnia is what allows all of this.

I have been playing 3 hours a day for the last month or so, and my playing has improved dramatically. I doubt it will last too much longer.


Yea, people don't ususlly like old threads dug up, but this one may slide, I dunno.

what i ment by when i practice is, i play when i watch T.v and i try and play along while im listening to a cd(ear practice). just doing that i have some of jason beckers altitudes. i have fun and mix it up all the time. specially with my gay as drum machine on blitzkieg(malmsteen) that really gets the blood and juices pumping. DAMN I LOVE THAT SONG. u just gotta rip it up even more than before or atleast the solo

This was an OK revival in my book.

Anyway, the last time I managed to sit down and practise was two weeks ago and even then for only an hour and a half. Such is life, unfortunately.

Same for me.
I'd say I play on average 10 hours a week in varying intervals.

I play for about an hour a day in weekd-days.
In the weekends I play about 3-4-5 hours, most of them is either practicing or making up riffs or leads.

In the weekends I also practice playing with distortion, and practice playing with different effects. Most of my playing these days is on my acoustic guitar.



How do you guys feel about practicing, playing with distortion. I feel like it is also something you have to practice and learn. It is not the same as playing without.

I play for about 2 hours a day
I practise about 4-5 hours a day generally between 1am and 6am

Been doing this for the last 2 months or so and my playing has got a lot better.


My practise regime is like this:

Warm up exercises : accending and decending 1-2-3 2-3-4 etc until I am at about 170 bpm (then using 4 fingers, string skipping, different fingerings etc)
get speed up in my strict alternate picking playing plug in baby by muse.

Modes, Scales, Theory

Sweep picking ( i am truly awful)
4 note runs
Finger stretching Legato runs

Attempt to play the cool ravenous solo and fail (can play it all but not at speed apart from the last decending part)

Play some bodom stuff

Tremolo Picking

Two hand tapping


Go through it all again

Sleep


Until i have that ravenous solo nailed and my picking is exceeding 200 bpm in almost everything i do then i will calm it down a bit. I normally play clean so i can hear mistakes - distortion can hide them.

Maybe I am quite sad but of the few times i do go out to parties etc, I normally end up thinking i am wasting a night of sweep picking. Sad i know

I have no life
