do you get frustrated with that hunk of woad with steel wire attatched to it? cause i sure as hell do. results come so slow when it comes to this which is definately frustrating. i want to sound like all those dudes i look up to like hendrix, frusciante, srv, etc... and, well, that doesn't exactly happen over night.

am i the only one that gets extremely frustrated? thats what it feels like right now.

everyone who plays gets into ruts, and i think it happens to every player in a huge way after the first few months, when they know simple chords and stuff but their skills arent up to par to play what they want to.

then some people give up.

others continue till their fingers bleed.

i'll let you choose who plays for the crowds of 50,000.

EDIT: my point was stick with it. if you feel really bad about it, go listen to some music you never would usually listen to. rediscover your love for the guitar. start practicing new styles. it'll do a world of good.

How bout asking questions on UG when you feel frustrated about a technique? Im self taught, and this is pretty much how I learned.

Write your own music that's at your level to play. I do this, a lot.

If people could play like Hendrix in a day then we wouldn't get much respect now would we?
#13
Frustration is normal when learning anything new, or holding something you are not exactly used to holding. Don't wish and think, act upon your wish without letting frustration beat you.

You should always think and practice to get better than yesterday.

No, I'm sure there's other guitar players who have little patience.

Oh no, that is a horrible thought. Years of hard work, just to have it turn out to be something everyone else already knows.

I've played for years, and I still can't get into rhythm. I found out that I have some strange listening disorder (CAPD). I guess I'm forever rhythm retarded.

But anyways, just keep going. If you really love making music then you'll stick with it.
Knowledge speaks, but wisdom listens.

When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace.

You have a hunk of woad:



With steel wire?



And you want to sound like:



A guitar hero?



Yeah. I see your problem.

But Hendrix did have the skills of someone who only played for a day.
