Absolutely mate. Then again I've got about 70 + songs to hold in my head. I also do solo.

Usually have a stum through the night before a band gig - again 50+ songs. Constantly keeping the solo acoustic songs practiced and updated.

Yup - I do 2 - 3 hrs a week, mostly for stamina, but also to try out different kinds of music, just to broaden my horizons.

Doesn't seem to be working though.....

Absolutely. Got to keep the chops up and new song arrangements coming.

Yep, most days, if only to freshen up songs I haven't played for ages and to put more of my stamp on regular numbers. I sometimes do a couple of hours, sometimes more. I try to learn new songs every week too... but don’t always manage it... preferably learning new techniques in the process.

Yeah, all the time, if I didn't then I'd get a blank spot halfway through a number on stage, keeps me in shape with all the numbers.

Not regularly unless I'm learning a new song, or refreshing something for a dep gig.

I have a guitar in my hand frequently throughout the day, therefore when I get home I do practice yes...... but not every night.
