    Ive been playing here for probably 2.5 hours. Which is much longer than I usually play for. Just straight up noodling too. Cracked a beer. At one point I went through Paranoid Android start to finish (was so into it I was head bobbing and all lol). Now back to just noodling.

    The whole time with my Boss OD and my Chorus pedal on. Don’t think Im done yet either.

    So on that note, how long do you all usually sit down and play for in a single session?

    That's very dependent upon the time I have. But usually around 90 minutes to 2 hours, if I have the time. Sometimes just 30 minutes on my acoustic in a pinch.

    It varies. Sometimes 20 minutes at a time several times a day, sometimes an hour or so once or twice a day. Depends on mood and available spare time.

    I take my guitar to the toilet.

    Just kidding.

    I get in 15 to 20 min on drums every day.

    Now that I'm giving lessons again I have the guitar in hand one to two hours a day.

    I like it. The students motivate me. They do more for my playing than they can ever know.

    Since I'm not married, and my kids are grown and left home, my time is my own. I play for hours every night. And I just ordered a looper pedal, so things are about to get interesting. :D

    Hard to say... i try to have 30mins each day designated guitar pratice. But then I end up picking it up for a couple of mins multiple times, unplugged usually throughout the day and evening... not as much as wld like with life, 3 kids etc

    In person, but I have an old student who wants to do Skype so that's on the horizon.

    It's a passion. Always has been. If I'm at home, I have a guitar in my hands.
