for quite a while i have been practicing 4-6 hours of guitar a day. lately i have only been practicing 2-3 hours and it bothers me. usually when i practice nowadays i don't feel as motivated as i do. i usually felt motivated when my teacher gave me a lot of material to learn and i would learn it. lately we've been playing the same pieces that we've played for the past 6 months with the hopes that my timing improves. is there any way to motivate myself without the help of my teacher? usually when i ask my teacher for help he just tells me to play.

this going to sound boring but, if youdont already practice scales with a metronome(sp?). I do this for two hours everyday alone.
