I've been playing for several years now, and I feel like I'm plateauing as a player. The main reason is because I've lost interest in getting better, because my initial goal was to get good enough to improv a little bit, and I've reached that goal. I can't find motivation either, so what should I do?
Do you have other interests? are you neglecting them? That could be the cause. Try keeping things in balance a bit more.


Take a planned break and see how much you need you play. But stick with your plan, be it a month, 3 months, 6 months or whatever. You'll either come back really keen or switch your interest to butterflies (or something)
I pick up my guitar and play
Just like Yesterday

T C Ellis Series 2 LP w/Skatterbrane Quiescence pups
Cort EVL-K6
Yamaha RGX211 modded
H&S Electric 12-string
Shaftsbury Ricki 4001
'84 Fender Yale
Roland Cube 15x

I'd say find a very difficult song you like and learn it.

I've found the same with other hobbies, unless I keep pushing myself (with challenging but realistic targets, I don't set myself the target of shooting a world record score for instance) to improve then I quickly lose interest as I've got no real reason to do it.
