Okay so Ive been stuck in a rut with my playing where its been a long time since Ive actually improved. This has started to extinguish that "spark" that made me want to start playing in the first place. Because of this I dont really play as much as I should, I know I should play more but it just seems like im not getting anywhere. I just need UG to suggest some things that I can do to help me progress a little bit so that I can get excited about playing again. I also have this thing where my hands shake all the time so it makes things more difficult so it would obviously take longer to learn things and get them down.

Sorry for the wall of text lol

Try to pick up some new songs or techniques that'll be challenging.
Moving on.....

Yeah I had the same problem. . . When I first started to play I really enjoyed it until I came to a point were I wasn't getting better (somewhat like going towards a big cliff and can't go any farther :P). At this point I just had to try to move on and learn a little bit more advanced songs. Although I couldn't play the songs right off, I learned. Anyways what I'm trying to say is that try learning stuff that you most likely wouldn't catch onto quickly and then you'll adjust.

Paranoid by Black Sabbath. Easy riff, but the solo should challenge you. I struggled with it for a while, but then I got it and went on to other stuff like The Trooper. Now I'm on Fade to Black

Whenever I hit a plateau, I just like to sit back and just play whatever I want. Enjoy yourself a little, you know? That's how I get my inspiration back. Gotta sit back and enjoy what you've learned up till now before you can move forward.
