    As great as the internet can be, it is an addiction. I would like to pratice a little more than I do now. The internet can be "information overload".

    I am weening myself off the internet and trying to pratice more each night.

    Between to 2 bass message boards and a site on home recording the hours add up.

    Nike's old slogan says it all:

    JUST DO IT

    Remember; there's only one way to get better at anything; and that's to do it.
     
  3. When I'm on the internet im mostly on TB with my bass trying to learn stuff.

    I work on t'internet, so spend about 8 hours a day using tools online. I dont use it all at home other than to do email, banking, paperless bills, etc.

    I usually practice about 2 hours a night at the moment, 1 to 1.5 hours on upright and 15 to 30 mins on electric. So ther ratio is about 4 : 1, internet : practice.

    i usually have a bass in my hands when i'm on the computer at home. when i'm on the computer at (music) school, i'm usually learning about music/theory, so yeah, i guess that'd be considered practicing, too.
