I'm out of the house from 7am to 7pm on weekdays with work, in the boozer (or at the match) on Saturdays, at the match (or hungover) on Sundays and there's usually football on the telly once or twice on weeknights. All this means I get between 1 and 2 hours worth of practise per week. If I manage to get more time to play than that, I usually devote it to tabbing. So this is why my tabs take so long

Have you tried sitting down. I've played guitar in all types of odd positions, from standing up to hanging upside-down from a balcony (as I've said on other occasions, I live the true metal lifestyle, which includes poor decision making skills), and some are less stressful on the back than others. Like lying down. Of course, if nothing works, I guess it's just good that you get in what you can before it hurts too much.

I try to practice at least one hour a day, and can often fit in several, but sometimes it's impossible, even with the extra hours I get from my poor eating and sleeping habits. It's not like when I first picked up the guitar and could sacrifice all my free time, and a lot of time that wasn't free, to all day practice sessions. It's funny how life gets more important, since it happens without you're noticing it except when you look back over it with guitar in mind, like I'm doing now.

About 1-3 hours typically

I always stand because when are you going to perform sitting? Around a campfire?

The thing I hate about sitting down and playing is I think I know how to play everything perfectly when Im practiceing, but then when I have to sand up and play with other people and can't nail the hard/fast stuff very well. That's why I usually alternate between sitting and standing.

When I started playing, for the first 5 months or so I played for 3 hours every day, I played the first three deftones albums back to back evry day. Then I got my band so the only time I'd play would be at jams and making up riffs and stuff but I wasn't really getting better. Now, I play for probably 2 hours average (30 mins to an hour most days and then one or two days where I stay awake till late and just play from dinner time to 6am).

For me, it's quite random..... none one day, 45 min the next, 6 hours the day after that. Due to the fact Ive been trying to tab a Cryptopsy song I've been playing at least 3 hours a day for the last little while...... but I usually work long hours, making it hard to play too much during the week.

Roughly two hours a day depending on what day. At weekends I can sometimes do five but at the moment I'm also playing bass so I have to fit both in.

For me, I usually play about 2-3 hours throughout the day, but that has only become a recent habit for me. Before, I used to only pick up the guitar every second day, but of course, that's usually because I am burnt out most of the time.
