#beginquote# Maybe you need a change of pace? You don't mention what type of guitar you play, but if it's a nylon string then you might consider switching to a steel string ( don't switch the strings from nylon to steel, because they cut through the plastic spindle covers in a few months ) you will notice an increase in ease of playing because the neck is thinner and much more narrow, plus what you play will sound at least a bit like what you hear on the radio. If you already have a steel string, change the strings to a set where the 1st (top E) is a .010..this size needs much less tension to bring it to the correct pitch, which means the strings are far easier to hold down. Most guitar teachers start their steel string playing students on this size strings and then move to a set with a .011 1st after a month or two. If you have done this already and still feel jaded, perhaps some open tunings will spark things up..Open D is fun. tune 123456 to D A D F# A D, then buy or make a slide. A length of waxed string around the neck of a bottle and lit will give you a traditional bottleneck blues type. A Burbon bottle is the authentic one, of course. Others you might like are : E B E G# B E and C G C G C E If you are middle-aged, have no energy and are thirsty all the time, of course, you probably have Type 2 Diabeties. On that happy note, let me wish you a Happy Easter:) #endquote#
