Long story short, I feel no joy in playing/learning guitar anymore. Still I love music, especially Iron Maiden.
So is my guitar playing days over? How can I find my joy again?
Maybe I just suck too much?

Learn another instrument - Drums, keys, whatever.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

You could do what oneblackened said or you could try playing something that you haven't played before. For example try doing blues type stuff if all you've played is metal.

WHERE IS MY PICK?

Whenever I get tired of playing guitar, I borrow my friend's bass and screw around on it. It's surprisingly useful in getting me back into guitar.

Jam with other people. Play in a band. Anything like that, just involve other people in it somehow if you haven't already.

Do you know why? May it be due to you not progressing or not getting instantly gratified? If so, then stick with it if you can. If not, no real big loss.
I did change over instruments 2x just so you know-- it does happen!

or pick up a different type of music. i find playing all metal/thrash stuff can get boring after a while. ive been getting into acoustic finger picking style myself. its awesome.
