I see a lot of German references, I can't see if you are - but, having said that, Wilkommen! I am originally from Namibia (guys must Google if they don't know where), now in South Africa. Namibia used to be Suedwest Afrika - as in Deutsch Suedwest Afrika, so we all have a smattering of German.
All of no consequence - I hope you will enjoy the site. Oh yes - glad you have given it up, well done
Well I practice nearly 2 hours almost every week night. Some nights it might be only an hour though. I have a lot of free time after work once Ive had dinner so whilst the Tv is on in the background Im usually practicing. At this stage Im just learning to play songs from Riffstation and other Youtube videos. Once I master some chord changes and have it down pat then I might look at learning scales etc.
That's steady progress. Keep it up!
I hope you aren't cramming two hours of practice in and mistakenly using that as a substitute for shorter, more frequent - and far more productive - practice sessions. As you've probably heard about learning and mastering a subject, it is a marathon not a sprint.
Well 5 weeks later I can play for a good 2 hours before my fingers get real sore so my callouses have certainly developed nicely. I know the following chords and can switch between them nicely D A E G C Amin Emin Dmin and my first bar chord Bmin.
