As it's been for the past couple of years, just making the time to sit down and play in the mancave for a half hour with serious effort, rather than a five minute half-hearted doodle on the couch acoustic. It's 100% my own fault. Plus it would be nice to seek out some playmates, but if it happened I would not be sure I could make the regular time for that. My priorities got messed up somewhere down the road
Just curious to hear what people have found to be the hardest part of learning to play. Could be a technique, could be music theory, etc. For me, the hardest part was learning to bend strings well. I started with a '77 LP (still have it) and that was my exclusive guitar for many years. Much later I ended up with a Strat and realized the really low action I had on the LP had been holding me back from bending - had a lot of trouble getting "under" the string to be able to bend it with authority. I can easily bend a step-and-a-half now, still working on getting a reliable vibrato at the same time.
What is/was your difficulty? How'd you overcome it, if you did?
