for exemple here in GMC.

1º- i pick a lesson that i like ( usually btwn lvl 3-6)
2º-i pick my guitar
3º-i start to learn the song the licks blahblah
4º-10 min later i feel bored and stop playing
5º-at the end of the day i didn't learn nothing..

Pick a lesson that you REALLY like !!!

That way you will want to learn it. If you focus too much on technical lesson then it may cause you a lack of motivations.

Learning a lesson, from start to finish, is not easy. Most lessons have some element that is interesting. Phrasing, backing track, tone, dynamics...just to name a few. Learning a 30 second solo lesson at GMC may or may not have a ton of educational value. That can be debated. But it's very hard to find a lesson that doesn't have SOME element that would lead to a better understanding of your instrument. Maybe look at how lessons are played. The chord progressions of the backing track, the scales used, and see how the solos are constructed. That may make learning them more interesting than just parotting out the notes chosen by someone else and would make them more instructional and perhaps less boring.

Just a thought.

Generally you need to pick a topic that really interests you and in which you want to progress (vibrato, bending, chicken pickin, tapping etc etc). You need to always have a higher goal. Depending on the lesson. If its a soloing lesson i major key. You should go through the lesson to learn some licks etc BUT your final goal need to be - to improvise your own solo utilizing licks ideas you learned over the same backing track! Then you will feel a lot of satisfaction if you can accomplish that. Of course you should learn as many licks as you can - that will greatly improve your playing and improvising skills. Just make sure to take everything from the lesson - study backing and all the texts, scales used, licks, techniques. Every lesson is there to teach you something new!

On the other hand if you feel unmotivated to play guitar, just take a break for a day or two and watch some concert dvds. Then get back to rocking! smile.gif

If I find my motivation lacking just going to a local gig or open mic night soon gets me back into the swing of things. I fond just watching other people play and perform is a great motivator.

that's really good advice....also create your own stuff, that's totally different from playing other people's material. With two notes, 2 chords you can start doing music, experiment with rhythm, timbre, dynamics, instruments,etc

I would agree with Daniel, and recommend that you try to do some of your own songs. This will help you get motivated into music a bit more. Without creating something new, based on the things you learned, you can risk to loose interest in music.
