I've only been playing for three years. For the first year I had regular weekly lessons of an hour or so. I would have been lost without them. But life steps in and sadly these are now increasingly difficult. The upshot is I need to make the most of my practice time and I'm open to suggestions. How often do you guys try to learn a new piece? I guess "learning" is a blurred line after many years of playing. I try to learn a few new riffs or hooks regularly, these then become part of my practice routine, for both memory retention and technique improvment. How do you chaps in here spend your practice time?
