Last night I realised that, other than gigs and band practice, I never actually play my guitar any more. I'm starting to see actually playing and learning as more of a chore than something I enjoy. I can't force myself into it either.
What do you guys recommend? I know some of you have gone through the same thing.
A style change worked for me. The songs I've been going over with my band have all been covers of power/prog metal - Sonata Arctica, Coheed and Cambria, etc. and when we get to writing it'll be in that style.
So the songs I've been playing as practice are a completely different style - The Gaslight Anthem, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Kyuss, Corrosion of Conformity, Gary Moore, etc. Stops it getting as stale as it had been.
