I play until my fingers feel like they're about to bleed. I get into it too much and it causes me to sweat which causes the strings to get rough and it makes playing hurt, but in a good way. I play so long that my calauses (fuck i can't spell) get ripped up.

Lately I have been a slacker, I have played about 3 maybe 3 1/2 hours a day. I would like to get a solid 8 hours in every day. However, I doubt the day will come anytime soon.

i am self taught and damn happy i was not taught

get a teacher if you want
do it yourself if you want, the lessons to learn are easy to get (internet, books, friends)

practising something is like sex - start off slow and then build up speed until you have achieved what you were looking for, then piss off down to the pub

Average 2 hours daily. I'm very busy man: work and other business takes many time, also I compose a music. But when I can fing some time to play, I playing! Once a week I meeting with my band and we playing together 4-6 hours. If all of my desires was fulfilled, I would sleep with my guitar!

hm, I usually don't practice except songs for the band.
Sometimes I don't touch the guitar for days, but then I just grab it and play for hours.
The only hard practice I do is playing the songs of the band over and over again, especially, difficult riffs.
I'm not really the one to play own songs and riffs over and over again. Most of the time I'm standing around doing scales and some improvisation of clean singlenote playing - I hate shredding primitive riffs for a longer time.

Sometimes a useable riff comes around or a bunch of 'em, other times I just trained my playing.
Personally I think guitar playing just for itself sucks, I just got learned all the stuff I need for my musical genre. for a year I really practiced hard, the time I had weehkly guitar lessons. Since then I didn't really learned new technique, just got more speed in pull-offs, hammer-ons, scales. I'm faster at hitting the strings and got more precision in single notes and arpeggios. No need, for more stuff

1.5 hour Iron Maiden songs
1 hour only soloing

I play about 2 -3 hours a day . As far as lessons I still take lessons and ive been playing over 20 yrs . I do the Tab and instructional stuff as well. A good teacher will keep you progressing and give you fresh ideas when your stuck.
In the beginning Id suggest finding a good teacher who can show your proper technique , give you a working knowledge of theory and get you started in the right direction.
another tip dont just listen to one type of music try Jazz , blues , classical besides the metal.

Unless I'm away on a trip, or at a friend's house, around 3 hours a day. However, that's an average, because I've played much longer than that before, so that could mean that one day I played only a half hour before school, and then the next day for 4 and a half hours. I spread out my time a lot during the day, and if I go too long without playing, I start going nuts.

Like on my class trip a few days ago. If I hadn't found a guitar there..... who knows....

Well I usually practice anywhere from about 10 minutes to 3 hours. . . on average maybe an hour a day but it is way too sporatic. . . plus I have a private lesson on thursdays and I am usually too drunk to get anything done with it. My band director in college knows about it but yeah, I let the drink run me and if I'm not drunk I am usually not there.
