Sometimes you'll have to put the guitar away, just don't play the guitar for a couple of days and you'll notice that you'll feel like playing it again! Playing the guitar for a (very) long time also isn't very good for your improvement.

Pascal (also almost 17 and almost playing for a year!)

Similar situation as you, loads of free time so I played loads. The other day I just didn't want to pick it up... so I left it for two days. Almost left it for another... but decided to play anyway.

I wouldn't leave it for too long... but two days was enough for me. On that third day I was into it again.

i used to play 7hrs a day for two months but i got so frustrated and burnt out that i quitted playing for 4months , i think you shouldn't overdo it i guess , it's not good to play as much as you can even , if you feel like it , do it but if it starts feeling like a thing you HAVE to do, just quit somedays like they said here before...

gl and don't quit, you're only playing for a year ,it takes time

Well, all guitarists go thru this at some point I think. It's human nature, you start up doing something and there's so much to learn about it that it's all fresh and exciting. But once you've been at it for a while, that 'spark' starts to die, and as a result your standard of playing can drop. In my case, it took me a month to pick my guitar up again, but the reason I did so was because I watched a vid of Satch and I just went 'WTF! I have got to play like that!' I think it just takes a bit of inspiration at the right time to get things moving again. I would recommend a really good book written by one of the pros. I used one of John Petrucci's, which is full of so much stuff that it never gets boring.
Anyway, let us know how it all works out!

Regards,
Afro

thanks everybody. i think i was feeling like a bitch that day i posted that. the heat and being stuck in my room for hours can do that to a man. anyways all you guys's advice was helpful.



now you should all help out on picking between a vox ad100 and a laney lv300t. post comments on the other page. i made one about that specifically.

thanks again

Damn, those are good suggestions! I started to play around two months ago or so. Now, latest days, I've also noticed that I'm playing like a little bustard (in negative way). Khmm, I'm not skilled, but I'm learning fast and I think I play quite well, though. So, just happened that I was camping for three days and when I got back, I played like a guitar god (well, in my eyes.)! :D So, taking time off is good. ;)
