I am putting out a challenge during spring and summer to practice 4 day a week at 1/2 hr each day. Most people stop playing guitar because they are too busy during spring and summer . Let’s commit now and practice.
I practice EVERY day. It’s now part of my lifestyle. Don’t have to work out if I’ve done my X days this week. Even if it’s only 10 minutes a day, just do it.
Tony that’s awesome I also practice everyday and enjoy it so much that’s why I want people to join me with this challenge. Maybe can tell people what we did each week to keep motivation during summer. I will start be saying today I tried a looper pedal for the first time and played a c to a min to g looped and played the min pentatonic over it and was very fun.
For the love, play every day.
Hi Jeff, my challenge rather would be NOT to play half an hour per day . I practice every day and my problem is to find an end. I could play for hours…even in summer…
My routine is also practice and play everyday. The split is usually 1 hour each of play and practice. not always two hours but generally not less than one, with again a fairly even split. I would be lost without a guitar to hold.
I would suggest its a good target for Beginners for sure.
Me ? 1 to 2 hours a day minimum, everyday. But shoot life sometimes gets in the way and I’ll reluctantly not pick up for a day or two, however that’s normally when family matter are prioritised. But even then I’ll try and grab 15-20 minutes here and there if I am home. Simples.
I play everyday day that I can and that I am home. It could be anything from 10 minutes to an hour or more depending on the time I have available. I play because I love it ,and it’s never something I need to fit in ,and it also doesn’t worry me if I miss a day or two. At the moment I am on holiday with the family and I haven’t played or even thought about playing for the past week and it doesn’t really bother me.
I like Steve Stine’s mantra;
" Practice on the days you eat".
Simple to follow. Works for me.
