If you want motivation, try seeing if any friends play drums or even guitar and play with other people.

When I'm really uninspired, I usually just take a walk with my dog and listen to music
Normally, listening to a awesome guitar solo is all I need

Then I realize I suck when I can't play it as good as the track

Exactly my case

Get a teacher. It will be a huge help.

Junior's usually at least a little terse, but he knows his stuff. I've always read his posts in a grouchy grandfather voice, a grouchy grandfather with a huge stiffy for alternate picking.
Besides that, he's right this time. As usual.

While not being rude, I would like to tell you that having a teacher is the best thing you can do.

Maybe you should reconsiderate it?

I sincerely hope one day you look back at this post and realize how ignorant you're being about the concept of getting high.

...I'm not sure you can reconsider your fiscal status.

Look everywhere for inspiration. Listen to a favorite guitarist and figure out what it is that he does to create his "sound." Getting a teacher can really help but if you don't have the cash then you just don't have the cash. There are many resources online to help you out but it has to start with you.

Well that's not always the case. Some people with teachers still post here for advice.

What kind of vocabulary are you having trouble with? Is it like staccato, crescendo, ritardando etc.? Or is it more based around technique and theory?

We can help you with vocabulary and playing technique and stuff like that, but when it comes to motivation, you have to find a way to motivate yourself. Everyone has different people they look up to and goals they set for themselves. Who do you look up to? What do you want to learn? Etc.

For me, my motivation is people like John Petrucci and Paul Gilbert. I'm amazed my their ability and that pushes me to play and practice more.

ritardando


For some reason I can't make myself believe this is a word.

As some people allready said: Write your own songs, play with a friend or two that plays guitar as well (or drums or.. whatever that fits you really..). That's what made me go back to playing a long time ago when i felt "done".
