Has anyone else experienced this, i don't think it's loss of desire just not feeling like picking up guitar constantly.
You need to buy another one. That’ll kick start you up again.
I played in a band for about 15 years that gigged regularly in my area and even opened a few rock shows...then, when my wife and I had my son some life decisions needed to be made and my life changed. I got a "real" job and the equipment got sold except for one guitar that pretty much sat in the case under the bed for the next 15 years. Music didn't stop being the most important recreational activity for me, but actually playing a guitar was definitely on the back burner.
When my son got older I started to have more "me" time again and the guitar started coming back out from under the bed...now, I play everyday...and, I think I am a far better guitarist than I ever was when I actively played in a band.
I wouldn't stress about it...things come and go...and sometimes other things in life will take priority....you can ALWAYS come back to it!
