  • Ever get Bored with guitar?

    I know that there are times...which come along every few months...where I just get kinda bored with my guitar playing. Not enough to give it up or anything...just to where it's not something I focus on as much for a bit... Nothing wrong with my gear, still get to play at church every week...just not that "into" playing on my own at times...

    surely I'm not alone in this....
    My Gear:

    Epiphone Sheraton Pro
    Epiphone Les Paul Custom Pro
    2006 Fender American 60th Anniv. P-Bass
    Taylor GS Mini

    I have other instruments if I did, like an xv-3080 synth. And little flutes, thumb pianos, harmonica, that kind of thing.

          Nop! Wish I had more time to spend with it! Always something new I want to learn and play. Mind you I don't get bored ever. I learned a long time ago bordom is a state of mind you put yourself in and I don't have any time for that state of mind. Drives me nuts when my kids tell me they are bored. I just tell them they are the only ones who can do anything about it!

            No.

            What I try to do is always have some lesson/material that is out of my league that I'm working on. Study more theory, and apply it to my playing, that sort of thing. Keeps things fresh, and generates some new ideas and directions.

            I do understand where you're coming from, btw.

              Yes.
              As a listener, even basic guitar + vocals is more interesting than accomplished instrumental guitar.
              So i've pursued learning to sing & play.

                  I get bored pretty frequently. I have to repeat whatever it is that I'm trying to learn so much that it gets boring.

                        Not really. I get board with Strats and hardtails, but give me a 24 frets and a floyd and I never seem to get enough.
                        I also get board with single channel amps that have no effects in front. But put some pedals out front and there is always more to find. Everybtime I pick up a guitar something new and fun comes up within about 15 to 30 minuets, been at it for 19 years too.

                        Something that opened the doors for me was to learn all the modes in every key, so I eventually got past learning the neck and now can just play.
                        Besides being a guitar player,
                        I'm a big fan of the guitar.
                        I love that damn instrument.

                            I'd probably be 5 times the guitarist I am now if I wouldn't put down and forget about my guitar for prolonged periods of time.

                            After 12 years of playing I feel like I'm only run of the mill for someone that's been doing it for so long...

                              Nope. I don't enjoy instrumental guitar music that much.
