No. What you should do:

1. Practice harder and play slowly, then fast, when you get it.
2. Fap

4. PROFIT!!!!!!!

During practice once, my bass player was trying to act cool and headbang and I hit him in the face with sharp head of my washburn (accident maybe). Theres still a tiny bit of blood in my guitar, I think its kinda cool

Try to learn stuff you normally wouldn't. Leap into other genres. HAVE FUN. Jam with buddies. Start a band. Write music. Put **** up on Youtube. HAAAAAAVE FUN MAN. It's worth it.

If you want to learn something, get a teacher. If you don't want to go to the trouble, then don't bother.

I like playing, I just don't know why I should If i dont get better... Its not that I cant play heartbreaker, its just that I can't learn it by ear, and most other people i know that play guitar could learn stuff by ear within their first couple years... it pisses me off >
#21
Quitters don't rock. literally.
Keep on playing or else you'll turn into gay.
I plays guitars.
#22
if you enjoy playing guitar why would you quit? fair enough if you dont enjoy it but if you still enjoy you should carry on regardless of how good at it you are

If you enjoy it play it. Nobody is as good as they want to be. Don't let it depress you. Allow that to motivate you. And there are tons of people that can never play by ear. That's why god invented tablature.

learning to play by ear is as much fun as learning to play any other part of the guitar. You can't do it automatically, you actually have to try. And everyone can differentiate between two wavelengths of light. You can tell red from blue from magenta etc. and our brains are flawless therefore everyone should be able to differentiate two wavelengths of sound (and we can) ... but it takes practice. You probably don't pay attention to sounds everyday unlike light (for some weird reason) so you actually have to learn. If you really enjoy learning music etc. learning by ear is the way to go!

#31

#36
Um, if you quit how will you learn by ear? It's not a magical overnight thing, some people have better hearing abilities than others, just keep playing and I think it should come naturally.
Join cashcrate to make easy money. It may be tedious, but it does indeed work! Easily make $100 in about a week filling out random surveys.
#37
Change style? What do you play? I earlier played a lot of electric, hardrock and stuff. Started to listening to Bob Dylan, Johnny Thunders etc and now I'm more into playing acoustic and writing my own songs. Maybe this is something you need to do? Try out other styles etc.
sometimes I see us in a cymbal splash or in the sound of a car crash
