    En una primera aproximación:
    I used to: solía
    I was accustommed: tenía la costumbre.

    La diferencia en inglés es tan sutil como lo es en español.

    Voy a tratar de explicar en español.

    I used to play the guitar:
    Tocaba la guitarra en años pasados, pero no ahora.

    I am accustomed to playing the guitar = I am used to playing the guitar:
    Soy acustumbrar de tocar la guitarra.

    Ojyram, some corrections to your Spanish


    I am used to play the guitar = I am accustomed to play the guitar

    Estoy acostumbrado/a a tocar la guitarra.

    The verb is "acostumbrar"

    I have an example. Last week my english teahcer told us that she isn't accustomed to have a same group twice a week. I guess the translation is "ella no está acostumbrada a tener un mismo grupo dos veces a la semana".
