Hi all, I haven't played guitar in over two weeks. For the first week I was busy and the second week I was sick and stuck in bed all week (apart from the much needed walk to the dunny and to get food). Today I got my guitar back with my new Angus Young pickup installed but I was really dissapointed as I haven't played in ages and I am rusted. Any exercises or something to get me back to a high level of playing and an improved one too?

I wouldn't classify 2 weeks as ages, but what Metallica said. You should start off with simple things and after that slowly play more and more difficult things.

I had to do that instead of a real lolstack, because the number of lols would exceed the image limit. But dear god

Same here. I got back from vacation to find that my guitar was moldy so I haven't touched it in a while, I haven't had time to clean it.

Don't get frustrated. If you keep playing a bit more every day you'll get right back to where you were before

Start out smoothly. Play some easier stuff first, and then ease into the more difficult music.

I would say just play again. Remember why you started in the first place.

Too much hate!


Anyway, just play something. Preferrably something easy, then harder stuff.

What, you don't jam out on your guitar?

Usually I improvise shit for hours and hours and it gets progressively better. Start improvising, it'll help you get a feel for how your guitar is so that way you could do a month without playing and it would feel like you never put it down.

Easy on the triple post there, champ.

I take two week breaks all the time, and I usually come back better
