Well, I have no motivation to practise... I'm learning a song and it's going to take weeks to play it 95% like the artist. I just get bored with playing the same old thing. Anyone know what I mean?

What should I do?

The e-mail account to which this account is linked to. For some reason they're the same...

So, what should I do? It's almost like when I've learnt something it's not the same or as hard as it was before...

Because you... learnt it? I thought that was kind of how learning things worked...

Wrong forum. You should really stop making threads every time you have any question cos it's pretty much what you do. Your thread history is ****ing ridiculous. Believe it or not but there are MANY places where you can get advice from, not just here. More importantly, not in the ****ing pit.

Also when I listen to music the guitar sounds better. Why is this?


Because it's mixed and recorded in a professional recording studio and they're better than you, and they're not 9 years old

It's almost like I know the fantasy of being good on the guitar is different to the reality.

You're almost there. Some people find fantasy and reality hard to differentiate. You should get psychiatric help for that

I have a constructive thought to put out to you mate..

I've been there, done that. This is what you need to do:

Open your pc, go to pornhub or whatever floats your boat. Midgetsthatlooklike9yearolds . com or whatever. Then do what you gotta do. We won't judge you.

Then you pick up your guitar, find a song to play (how about Old Man or Heart of Gold by Neil Young), and THEN! you put it down! DON'T PLAY THAT! You should buy a bunch of guns instead! ; Magnum .45 .38's and some other ones.. A full briefcase of pistols ought to do the trick.. Then, you make awesome spring mechanism thingys for the guns so they slide out your sleeves! Then you talk to yourself in the mirror, threatening fictional characters.. Now, all you need to do is cut your hair into a MOHAWK!
After that, you attempt to assassinate a presidential candidate, but fail... That's alright chap.... Just go kill your local pimp, the local mafia boss, and the creepy local scumbag landlord...

Then you go home and play The Times They Are A-Changing You can thank me later. We have all been there
There's only one boss I listen to, and that's why I'm unemployed.

Are you attempting to tell everyone to pretend to be Travis Bickle to get through their problems?

Really good advice here. I recommend asking your local Guitar Center about some beginner fog machines
