I'm trying to get better and better at the guitar. I love the instrument so much, yet I haven't truly practiced in forever. I just pick up the guitar whenever I'm bored and play the boring simple stuff I learned when I first started. I've been playing the same stuff over and over because its alll I know how to do. But I lack any motivation to try and learn more! Learning scales, and all those 16th note, 8th note, stuff is impossible for me, for example. Every time I try practicing to a metronome, I end up nearly falling asleep, literally. I can't play by ear because its much too difficult, and learning by tab is annoying, because I tend to just learn one small part, and end up adding that to the list of crap I can play, but not too well, obviously. I know no music theory either, but will be going to college soon, and will be studying music there. But how the heck do I practice?! I could go on for days about how badly I suck at this instrument, but no one wants that. Can anyone tell me how to get better and stick to a routine?
