i used to play guitar a lot. like, over 2 hrs a day and i loved it. i was so excited to play, you know? ...but over the past year i've gotten so far away from playing its just not cool. i've been trying to get a band together but with my girlfriend around all the time i've got almost no time to practice.

i have very little inspiration anymore. its almost gone, but i want it...need it...back. any suggestions?

Trash your relationship with your girlfriend.
You'll have more time to practice and missing her will inspire you to write songs.


... or you might just end up wanking it with all that extra time.
I haven't really worked out all the details.

yeah it blows. i try to practice but when i pick up the guitar i only know power chords, a few scales, full chords and thats about it. I don't really know how to improvise too well so yeah, it just sucks because i don't think i'm good and then i get all sad and just play guitar hero a bit. makes me feel better.

You know scales but you can't improvise? What the hell did you learn scales for?

Just play along with a backing track in the same key as the scale you want to use...

well, i learned scales and then i lost interest because i was thinking there were too many scales to learn. then i thought well, all the solos and stuff i make kinda suck, so...yeah. thats where i pretty much lost inspiration =(

i need to build up finger speed and creativity to improvise stuff i like
