I’m often asked the question from adults who are beginners on the guitar, “How much time should I practice?” I always say, “As much as you can,” but we need to be realistic here, too. The issue really comes down to how much time do you really have to practice? As an adult you may have a busy life with a family and a career and you just want to learn the guitar for the fun of it. If that is the case, then any amount of practice time is good, especially if you’re enjoying it. Over time you’ll develop skill and be able to play what you like. The key is to enjoy it.
