For me its any where between 20 minutes and 4 hours. I'd say its usually 1 and a half or 2 hours
30 minutes to 2 hours. I even play unplugged sometimes just to get the fingers exercised.
I try to play @ least 30 min a day- Saturday I don't get to play @ all because I work literally all day, but I make up for it on Sunday with @ least 3 hours
7 hours a week at most.
15 minutes to an hour on non-band practice days. 2 hours or so on band practice days.
At least 1 hour each day. Otherwise I feel useless and suicidal.
15 minutes to 1 hour depending, at the time.
Play about 3 to 5 times a week for about and hour and forty minutes but I sometimes have been known to pull all nighters with my headphones...
12 hours a month
not nearly enough
3min--3hrs depending on when & if I have time. I try to at least pick it up every day.
Use to play 5-7 hours a day back when I played in two different schools groups in high school. These days I'm lucky to play 5-7 hours a week.
3 to 5 hours a day and atleast 2 to 3 rehearsals a week.
Not nearly enough. I used to try and do half hour to an hour a day on both upright and electric but since starting my new job I only find time to practice on weekends and some nights for 15 minutes. The saddest part is I just picked up a '51 P Bass.
During the week I'll play for about an hour. On the weekends, I'll do two or three hours at a time.
The real Chuck Norris would play 25 hours a day and still have plenty of time
at least 30 min every day (have structured exercises). Generally is closer to 1-1.5 hours on non-gig days, 3-4 hours on gigs and rehearsals (about 2-3x a week). If only I didn't have a day job...
me too it just depends on the day...
4 hours in my prime, probably about half an hour a day average now
I have no specific set amount of time. And I'm not sure if the OP means just practicing at home or with other musicians.
I'm not currently playing with anyone at the moment. But when I was... Our practice times were usually Tuesdays & Thursday nights, plus all day Sunday.
Alone practice time...
There have been times when I'll sit down for an hour or so. I usually set some sort of goal, like come up with a new, interesting melody or something like that.
Sometimes, I just noodle around with an unplugged one while watching TV. Sometimes, I'll hear an interesting melody & try playing it. A few times, I've put the TV on mute & tried to play whatever came to my mind, according to the program's scene.
Then there were days when I just bought a new bass. The day I bought my Warwick Thumb BO 6, I completely lost track of time & it was already 1:00am before I realized I should be in bed. Same thing when I got my Conklin GTBD-7.
I like to equally rotate my basses for pracice. Switch the bass each day. In addition to the 2 memtioned in the prior paragraph, I can also stay true to my Ibanez SR885 of 19 years, the travel-size Bassfish by Goldfish Guitars given to me by my wife this past Christmas time... Even equal practice time with the Ashbory. If/when I get a more, they will also fall into equal rotation.
