There's an old saying - "Absence makes the heart grow fonder." Take a break from playing guitar and see how much you miss it. You'll enjoy it that much more when you get back to it.
"Out of sight, out of mind" is also another old saying

Re: Helpp, why don't i wanna play my guitar anymore?

I always hear these stories of people losing interest in guitar. Am I the only one that has not ONCE lost interest in playing? Maybe some of you are just overdosing on the instrument. I only play about 2 hours a day at most, some days not playing at all. I used to play a lot more, like 5 hours everyday. But that was mostly when I was trying to up my technique. However, if you just lose interest in making music, then maybe making music isn't for you. I have the feeling that some people are just "born to rock", or " born to play whatever type of music you like".

i was definately born to play, music has been in my blood for at least three generations, probably more.. I really think the biggest reason is I don't have an amp, and my acoustic doesn't exactly allow me to explore.. I can't handle having just one tone..
