How Much Do I Need to Practice?

You should practice as much as you can and want to, regularly.
We have busy lives, but if you practice even for 15 or 30 minutes four or five times a week,
you will gradually gain a great deal of skill and confidence with your instrument.
With more practice time your comfort and ability will increase more rapidly.
Everybody’s life is different – the important thing is, practice as much as you comfortably can –
and not over the course of a day or of a week, but for months! A year of regular quarter-hour
sessions will make you a better guitarist than a week of two hour sessions.
With regular focused practice, over time your success is certain.
