Okay, my guitar experience has definitely gone in phases
Phase 1 - Got an acoustic guitar, didn't play it because I wanted an electric
Phase 2 - Got an electric guitar, got frustrated and didn't play it
Phase 3 - tried playing electric guitar, got a bit better, but eventually got stuck
Phase 4 - Picked the acoustic back up and started learning chords

I've been learning more and more about guitar (I live in the middle of nowhere and can't get lessons, so I just learn these things on my own or from this site) and started learning chords on the acoustic guitar, and even though I feel like I've reached a certain level of proficiency, whenever I try writing, I keep falling back into the same few melodies using G D and C. How can I diversify? I don't want all my songs to sound the same
Thanks, that is very helpful, and will be even more helpful when I can get lessons and understand the more advanced theory stuff mentioned there
