    Five hours or so but also not enough, but certainly enough to feel guilty that my job or vocation as an English teacher is sometimes geting the short shift.

    I have been trying to learn (or practice) the F Major scale in three positions and now I can say that I have an idea and an ear for the notes on the E string but I cannot tell the difference between the F Minor one.

    F Major has 1 flat, F minor has 4 flats. That means that you should be playing B, E, A, and D flat while you play the F minor scale, which is quite different.

    This week has been doing things like getting our son ready for graduation from college, moving him out of his dorm. But I still managed to get at least 1-2hrs everyday to practice my violin, piano, practice on guitar has been slipping a little.

    I practice about 2 hours everyday, would like to practice longer, but after 2 hours my attention level really start drift off. Is there anything I can do so I can make my practice longer and more focused?

    I suggest splitting your practice sessions into segments. Instead of practicing for 2 hours straight, break it up into four 30-minute segments. My other suggestion would be to practice less, and focus more on quality practice. Here is an article that I put together for you guys to deeply evaluate your practice sessions.
