You're a bassist, well you're going to need extra motivation.

dwelling on past mishaps is for the weak. you must stride into the future, unabashed and prepared to fuck up yet again.

You must of jizzed yourself knowing you made a deal like that ^.^
Ts its fine if you haven't been able to keep playing guitar. I haven't either, a break is always good. If you want to do something then do it.

If not now then when?
Impossible is just a word people say to make themselves feel better when they quit.

What motivates me to keep playing the guitar or any other instrument is the fact that every time I pick it up, something new, some new melody or riff that no one has ever heard before. Every time you pick up your instrument something new and exciting can happen. Thats why I keep playing.

As for life. Find things you like to do and pursue them, who cares what they are. Don't sweat the small sh*t and just have fun. Life's too short.


Go Leafs Go!!

Next season anyway
Well, when I am really demotivated at playing guitar I just thing about my goals as a guitarrist (becoming a teacher and be able to play whatever I want), after that, I picture myself while teaching someone or playing something really hard. Then I realize that only practicing hard, playing a lot and having fun with guitar will allow me to get closer to my goals.

Well, that motivates me quite much.

Never thought about applying that at life...

Well, if you don't have any goals in mind why would you even bother playing guitar.
Signatures are overrated.

try playing different kinds of music, i never like playing until i learned metal

Where's Waldo?

Don't get stuck in a niche of just one genre. I started off playing punk then I moved to metal. Now I primarily play blues and I'm starting to get into jazz-fusion.
I don't always post in the threads but when I do its random and pointless because I'm ignorant enough to think you care.
Think about what made you start playing in the first place, get back that initial feeling you had when you picked up a guitar for the first time.
Appreciating Metal since 1998

R.I.P - Ronnie James Dio

You need a crutch to live life man. You need the love of a good woman, or good friends, an addiction, a place to be. I have my crutches, and I fall to pieces without them.
I keep playing guitar because, some day, I want to be a really amazing guitarists. If that's what you want for yourself, TS, that should be your motivation.

As for life, I'm not sure I can help you there.
Cheers guys, I feel i've gotten my motivation back. I had a Jazz Guitar lesson today, and my teacher put on this jazz fusion song, and it reminded me of progressive metal, really reminded me of between the buried and me. haha.

I think i'm gonna have a break and listen to music Jazz dubstep etc haha.

And the fact that you guys were serious makes me feel better.
Hugging thread maybe..
And Me being Christian and believing in God motivates me. (just thought i'd mention..)
Yeah i thought i'd add that one in, I was having a lame weekish when I posted this thread.

Thanks guys much love.

I'm glad you posted a follow up. After two months of not posting in this thread, I had worried that the pit's help didn't help you, and you wound up hanging yourself from a ceiling on one of your bass strings.

I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

You are EXTREMELY WRONG! I have played it. I own an 18W and it would be an awful stereo amp, it's way too bright, breaks up too easily and so on. Secondly, why would a guitar store sell an hifi amp.

Basicaly, you are 'alive' now, you may as well try to enjoy it while you're here, because you can't change your mind once you're dead.

If you are not getting anything from what you are doing, try doing something else.
