This week ive been in this rut sort of thing, im feeling like my playing is going nowhere, now ive been playing for 2 years and its not that i suck, its just i feel that im not advancing fast enough and i just dont feel amazingly amped to play right now, is this a bad thing? i dont necessarilly need a cure, just some advice and maybe some direction?

All help needed

thanks

Learn a new style.
I.e. if you're normally playing metal, learn some blues.

It'll open up limitless possibilities.

I agree on learning a new style. Also you could try and learn a new technique, hybrid picking is fun to learn. But if all else fails, stop playing for a while. It happened to me before and it helped loads. While your not playing you could maybe listen out for rhythms that you find in everyday life, for example the noise of a car engine, so when you start playing again you could try playing music to the rhythms you have discovered.

also, search for a new band to find inspiration from.

i see what yous mean, but blues is supposed to be for a more experienced player isnt it? with the arpeggio stuff, i havent looked much into it but i can do a few sweep picking excercises, and i do play a fair bit of metal, i look to metallica as a main source for inspiration but what should i start on?

ROFL, i accidently made that other thread twice hahaha
