Put it down and pick it up again tomorrow.

Go do something else, go for a walk/run, go the gym, watch telly, anything really but forget about it till tomorrow.

It'll make the world of difference tomorrow.

I know what you mean, it can get very frustrating sometimes especially
when your fingers wont do what you want them to do!. I've been playing for about
2 months now and dont have a teacher. I have got a teaching dvd though and its
really helpful as you can go at your own pace. To complement this I read thru
these forums and practice some of the excercises that are posted on here. They
really help. One of the best pieces of advice I've read is to play a song s-l-o-w-l-y
at first in time. It really is the best way. Put down your guitar go grab a beer have a read thru the forums. I guarantee you'll be itching to pick it up again afterwards

Play along with a song really loud where you can barely hear your playing and just make up the part.=)

Why would you spend tens of thousands of dollars to learn about a language you already speak? It was over before it even started dude

here is what I do on the shit days. If the songs I try to play aren't happening . I do fundamentals. If you have only been playing a few months. then this would be basic chords and some basic scales. On the crap days just set the metronome on slow. If you know the basic chromatic different fingers / 24 warm up exercise ( It was it posted here on UG) that is a great fundamental to do on the off days.

Doing this still keeps you developing your hand/finger coordination, without stressing to much.
