How many hours of practise before one becomes somewhat good in guitar playing?

Hi justagal83,

This is a tough question because everyone has a different definition for what's "good guitar playing." If you want to learn a couple of simple songs, then it shouldn't take all that long at all, maybe a few, solid hours.

What's more important is to have fun. A lot of people who want to play guitar, are in love with the idea of performing, but they may not actually have the interest to learn the instrument. You got to have fun while you do this or else it's going to be really difficult.

i always suggest beginners to practice at least three times a week. And practice means sitting down, running through a few GT videos, and perhaps taking a crack at a song.
