It will not be great if you haven't played in two months.

Seriously I just find stuff I like and play. Then I record said stuff. And write stuff. Then record said stuff.

Jamming with other people is good for finding new inspiration too. I was sick of playing until I met a drummer who is jazz technically proficient. Amazing drummer and really pushed me to what my limits were. Just remember where ever you're at, you will get better bro

I'm supposed to drum in a band, so for a long while, I ignored the guitar to build my drumming skills. But recently, I've been talking to the guitarist a lot about his playing, and that inspired me to pick it back up. He's way, *way* better than me Just having another player nearby that you look up to does wonders for inspiration

I get no inspiration to play from my family whatsoever, they could give two shits if I improve on it or not. Being in a band helped alot, because I sucked pretty bad at first (other than playing straight rhythm), nothing like making mistakes in front of tons of people to give you a kick in the ass, but I've been out of the band almost two years now.

I pretty much have to make little goals for myself, even if it's something as simple as increasing the metronome 2 clicks per day for a certain riff or something like that.

If you ever get bored, think about a song you'd like to listen to at that moment, go watch a live version in which you can admire the guitarist while he's playing, then go watch some good covers of it on Youtube. It works for me every time " Damn I love this song... and if HE can do it.. why can't I ?"

you need a new amp....

but OT, I usually go listen to a band I'e never heard before (or in some cases, several bands) and find a song that I like, learn it, then expand upon that song, ya know, adding your own licks and riffs...try it, its fun

Alternativly, you can find a slow jazz/blues song and just solo along in the background in the correct key...also a great inspirational tool...
