Have you ever taken an extended break from playing guitar or music in general? I started playing when I was 13, I'm 37 now and have never really stopped, there was a time when I barely touched a guitar as I was playing 5 string banjo but I've never not played an instrument. I'm kind of bored of my own playing at the moment though and very uninspired musically so I'm thinking of taking a few months off. Have you ever done this? How did it affect your playing? Did it happen naturally due to life circumstances, or was it a conscious decision?
