It will happen, I find one thing that really gets me motivated to start playing again is either buy a new pedal, picks...or something like that, something cheap that you wanna try out. Or try expanding to a different genre, blues is very good to get you better and if you're like me, when you get frustrated while learning a new song, you try harder and harder.

1 of two choices, sell your stuff.
or
you can just stick it out, youll pick it back up again if you really love your guitar, i promise

What you're experiencing is a plateu in your development. It's just one of those things, a kinda test of your dedication, if you will. I find when I experience something like that I change the way i practice or listen to a different genre, or just listen to the bands that made me want to play guitar in the first place.

Hope that helps.

Ha that happened to my friend a while ago, he got bored of guitar and sold all his stuff cheap, now he likes it again and wants to start playing, just like I told him would happen if he sold it all! Oh well, I got some cheap pedals and a new acoustic from it =D

I was kind of where you are right now. When I first started playng and heard a great song, I was like "i gotta learn that!". Now, almost nothing sounds good enough to me for me to even want to learn it. Here's what will help.

- Change your tone, you might not be happy with your current tone.
- Buy a new guitar or some kind of pedal or amp or something.
- Branch out and find some new songs that you will like and want to learn.

spending money on gear doesn't always help. when i bought my variax i didn't even get open the shipping box for 2 - 3 months. good thing MF didn't send the wrong guitar

i say take some lessons. knowledge is worth more then a new efect pedal which you'll probably be sick of in a couple days.

I have it happen all the time, but i'll be darned before I sell my stuff. Usually I'll try something like buying something small to change the tone or a different size plectrum / strings, or try learning some theory. What works best for me though is to start listening to a new genre or sub-genre of music to see if something peaks my interest that I would like to learn. I've gone from classic rock -> power metal -> classical -> prog metal -> instrumental rock and now i'm back on classical. Changing your tone or the music you're trying to play makes a huge difference when you're in a slump.
