1 ruger9 1 week ago Just curious... note I did not say "routine"... not interested in WHAT you practice, but HOW you practice.... -do you get up with your coffee first thing, and sit down with it and the guitar every morning? -do you usually not have time until very late at night, right before bed, and it helps you "wind down" from your day? -do you prefer "afternoon delights" LOL (this would really only apply to retirees, I'd think... the rest of us are still working lol)That kind of thing.For me, I do NOT have a ritual yet. But I think about it constantly. I love the thought of sitting down with my coffee and switching on an amp... but 1) it's pretty early for that kind of volume, for my wife (if I were single, this would definitely be a ritual), and 2) sitting with my wife every morning is OUR ritual, since we don't see each other all day.I'm also drawn towards practicing in the sunny afternoons, since my music space is right buy our patio doors, lots of great natural light. But I'm either working or checking things off the "to-do" list.Last thing before bed would also be a great way to wind down, but again- that time of night, too much volume for the wife. Altho, if she is still awake, reading in bed, I CAN (and do) occasionally play right before bed, when I'm especially bothered by something (life troubles, etc.)I USED TO have a daily ritual, before COVID- because my wife is corporate, and commuted, and I am a contractor, I usually got home before 5pm, and she, between work+commute+after-work classes (like yoga), wouldn't get home many nights until 7-7:30pm. So I had 2-2.5 hours to walk the dogs, pour a glass of wine, play a little, then start dinner. It was a great ritual. I miss it. She works 100% from home now, so that's all gone.
