Do you guys sometime lack motivation to play? On some days I feel uninspired and don't really want to play. When you get those type of moments, do you still force yourself to play?

I'm actually glad because I found out a reason (which was actually pretty obvious) as to why I have been lacking motivation, lately.

I play guitar in a room with a carpet floor. I would get bored with my playing easily. Then if I went to go play in a room with a wood or marble floor (100X better acoustics) I could easily play for relativly long periods of time.

The acoustic guitar is a relativly quiet instrument compared to piano or violin. The carpet just devours so much of the volume. Being in a room with good acoustics, the volume feels much more comfortable and I enjoy the sound so much more.

true to that. If i play in my living room, its' way bigger than my room. So the sound is a lot louder from my guitar, and i have wood floors.

Not really but thats because as far as my guitar playing goes i love doing it and i never think im good enough so i keep practicing to please myself but it never happens. maybe you need to dry that mentality

When I lack motivation, I watch an Andy McKee video... it seriously helps me.
"Ultimate"-Guitar is the worst website on the internet. Polluted with unintelligent mongoloids.

Somtimes i'll play for ten minute and be like, "meh, i'm done." But other days I feel as if I could play forever.
