I honestly feel I’ve gotten quite boring when it comes to playing instruments & I think a lot of that has to do with the fact that I’m not learning anything new anymore and also that I’m not giving the same amount of time to it as I used to in the past.
In my late teens and the first few years of college, I ate, slept, & breathed guitar. I used to get guitar lessons & I practiced several times a day. I also didn’t have as many responsibilities as I do now so I actually had more time, & more importantly, more time to hang out at home making terrible noise until it kind of started sounding like music. Putting music on the back burner has made me a little sad. I don’t care to play for other people too much since I’m much too shy for that. But music is one of the first creative things I ever learned & I don’t want to lose my passion/drive for it. I think maybe if I spend some time just playing around, not worrying about what’s what or if it’ll come out to anything decent, I’ll start feeling more inspired again. It’s just a matter of finding the time!
