No clue, I'm actually pretty unmotivated. I must just like playing guitar.
The love of making noise that sounds kind of like music.
The hope that maybe I'll push my ability a little further than last time.
I have been bass fishing most of my life and only playing guitar the last four and a half years. I am better at fishing than playing guitar. I am getting to where I would rather play guitar than fish.
Why do I play? I enjoy it. I also have recently started playing at an Open Mic and am working at getting better.
Playing is my greatest gift, both to, and from me.
It’s also what I do best.
I live for it!
i took it up as a stress reliever to replace my road running days once the knees went bad. I really didn't expect it to get very far as I had very little musical exposure growing up, but it went from stress release to a lot more on most days. Some days just noodling for 30-40 minutes is enough to knock the rough edges off a bad day. If I never did anything more than that, it would still be worth it.
I have been emotionally motivated by music from my earliest memories. To play music is even more motivating. It is my main source of entertainment. Can't imagine life without playing the guitar. It is part of who I am. It is difficult for me to set them down for others things to do. It is difficult to be a balanced person as a guitarist, but I think that is okay to some extent and I feel very fortunate to have the guitar playing bug.
The guitar has replaced my obsession with years of competitive road running/cycling/swimming/Biathlon. It does seem like some sort of therapy for the missing endorphin releases.
It clears the noise and helps me focus.
You nailed it for me!
Such a pure escape. My mind quiets, focuses, and the heavy backpack full of self-picked boulders is lifted off of my shoulders, if only for a while.
The wonder of striking the strings and hearing something beautiful I had a hand in creating when I do my part. Sometimes just a single chord can mesmerize me. I think Leo sprinkled some magic dust on the names of his guitars that has put a spell on me and many others too.
I like guitars. Got to do something with them.
What motivates you to breathe?
It's just something I do.
I am driven, no choice, no option. I sometimes don't want to play but it doesn't matter. I just have some internal craving that remains as strong fifty years later.
impressing and entertaining women of course.
me too, but after 15-20 min...it's magic...
seems to be like a lullaby for my inner demons..
I'm just another one that's been playing since 1968, I don't know how to do anything else. Dad said that I would waste my life. I didn't disappoint him...
-a good/sad mood
-a beautiful guitar
-a song in my head,I wanna play loud
-waiting for something...
Number one stress reliever. It use to be number two but now I'm old.
The older I get the more motivation I have. At some point you start thinking that you only have so much time left to play. My best friend stopped playing years ago and now that he’s retired tried to start again. His fingers just won’t cooperate. More motivation for me...
