Hi guys,

I'm recently broke up with my band and i'm struggling to find the inspiration to play guitar. When I was in the band we always had something to play something to write, now it seems mundane to play the guitar by myself.

Has anyone else been in this situation? Any advice? Thanks.

Go find some guys to jam with. It doesn't have to lead to a band, but you'll atleast always have some people you can get together with and just play

Try just leaving it for a while. Someday you'll see or hear something that will make you want to play guitar again.

Force yourself to sit down and try to write a song that is better than what your old band wrote. To prove to yourself that you don't and never did need them.

This has been happening to me on and off for 25 years. Seems like the only time I have initiative to practice is when i'm jamming with someone or have a little gig lined up. Something always entices me to pick it back up though.

Maybe get into some recording?

This is what my teacher suggested, but i'm unsure how to record. :S My computer doesn't have a mic at all.

By the way, thanks to everyone for their prompt replies. I appreciate it.

listen to guitarists you love the most.

and maybe try something different like some different genre or jamming with varied instruments, put urself through some new challenge.
