Being depressed isn't the same as feeling a bit sad.

Also you're off topic. This thread is about Reva eating snowmen.

I don't about losing the zest for playing the guitar but since your title said "writer's block", I learned something to help with that a couple of years back. Just write about why you can't write about something. It usually gets things rolling.

start slow and maybe learn new stuff?.. if you don't feel inspired playing then listen smth and get inspired

listening to Dark Side of the Moon usually cracks me right out of it. That and playing another instrument and just noodling.

Ok everyone, who do you think is the heaviest band? Personally I think As I Lay Dying is the heaviest

play something you already know well. or maybe listen to something and improv along, you'll feel better about your playing soon.

Agreed. Tbh it sounds just like a bit of frustration at writer's block TS. In the meantime,

Practice, I know i may sound stupid, but just keep putting the time in and you'll be fine

Keep your head up, you can do it.

...Only a week? That's no problem, it'll probably just take an hour or so to get warmed up and jammin' again like you where a week earlier.

your stupid, LMAO!

If you feel like your depressed learn a cool song, forget what you knew before and start over. There's nothing but the future. So don't let the past bring you down.

In other words,
"YOU CAN DO IT!"
lmao

"You have to go..." Reply: "Yess... [gaspy voice] I know..."
