"Lacking of inspiration is perfectly normal thing for every musician,
do not push it if it doesn't work,
take a break,even longer one,day or two."

I absolutely agree. You can't force inspiration, sometimes it is MUCH better to just stop for the day and restart on the next morning.

Very true, inspiration comes and goes by itself. It's arrival or departure cannot be controlled in any way. The only thing musician can do is to keep the inspiration flowing while it lasts.

This one you can't control! If you feel inspired go for the composing as much as you can ! But than again , its good to review old ideas at different times to see if you can make them even better ! smile.gif

Great tip...it's strange but it's true, sometimes take some day off it's better than play the whole day.

Excelent tip. You don't have to force if it isn't the correct moment. Sometimes I just need a few hours but frequently I have to give it up and continue the following day.

So true!

I have a couple of ways of "artificially" getting inspiration - and they are usually pretty simple: listening/watching or reading about other musicians.

Now if that doesn't work - then I know it's time for a break!

This works also for me. Talking with other musicians/friends about what they are doing in that moment can help too.
