To the point where you get depressed and want to give up cause you think your horrible even when you practice a good 10 hours a day and youve been playing for years

I just get stressed when something's wrong with my instrument; I hate when my equipment fails me.

I'm stressed as about my tone. Sounds great in my room then I get to the stage with the rest of the band and it sounds like crap. Just did 3 hours of tone tweaking on a stage this morning, and still not happy. Spose its ok to be stressed if your a bit of a perfectionist.

You must not be enjoying what you play if it's not giving you satisfaction. If you're trying to do the hard stuff first, I wouldn't. Guitar playing should be treated like stairs, one foot in front of the other.

Yeah, this.
So basically the opposite.

true that.

my guitar nevewr stresses me out.

Yes, there are times when I'm trying too hard to branch out and I realize, "What the **** am I playing right now?" A good ol' fashioned blues jam usually helps get me back to normal.


I have to learn some more advanced theory, this is driving me crazy. Funnily enough, if I listen to jazz, I can usually use more exotic scales a bit more successfully while playing along, but I haven't listened to jazz in ages.


In generally, I feel very good while I'm playing guitar. I really wouldn't do it if I didn't get this feeling of absolute fuck-all whilst playing.

If you feel that way, take it one step at a time(I know I'm sounding like an annoying mother here but o well. :p)
If you have some money, get a teacher who knows their stuff. That's usually exciting.

Never. There's never any long term frustration. There are times where I'll be like, "**** this, time to take a break. . . for a couple of hours." And then I'm back to it.

If i get like that i just put it down. I won't play the thing if i don't enjoy, but luckily i LOVE playing

i always said the day i stop enjoying guitar is the day i'll stop playing it, and that day doesn't appear to be coming any time soon

yes, I work hard to be good at what I do, and I feel I've really plateaued as of late, but I know if i stick it out I'll get better

when i was really new to playing guitar i know i would get frustrated sometimes, but i cant remember any specific instances of getting mad because of playing guitar.

a couple years back i would write songs that were way too hard for me to play, and they still are tbh. that stressed me out because i couldnt play them live worth a shit.

ive moved past that though and now guitar is nothing but enjoyment and expression

Whenever I feel I'm getting no further on bass, I go back to just improving the hell out of my technique. Seems to do the trick.

I have it sometimes when everything just sounds rubbish, when i'm not in the zone, but not very often, although i get really frustrated with piano, its not my main instrument but i still get angry at it.
WHOMP

Think of that next time you are not allowed to laugh.

Playing guitar when it frustrates you would surely completely defeat the idea. Sometimes i get a bit annoyed if i can't do a certain song or passage but you just have to persevere.

Is it bad that the only thing in life i've ever persevered with is my guitar. Succesfully persevered with that is.

Maybe 10 hours a day is too much? The muscles in your arm that work your fingers probably get tired, therefore you cant play stuff as well as you normally could, and you think you sound horrible?
