Best thing for my playing and motivation in *a long time* was starting lessons with Paul Gilbert on Artistworks. There's not only my personal lessons, there's the literally 8,000+ other videos to learn from. Every day I have about 5 of these lessons open. I also keep track of what I enjoyed in my practice journal. I almost never get bored with *practicing*. SO - start taking lessons. Doing it online at your own pace is a great way to do it. You're not limited to local teachers and can often get lessons from your favorite musicians (like me). Next - If you play rock, learn some country If you play country, learn some rock If you don't play jazz, learn some If you don't play slide... start Learn how to play some basic drum grooves on your son's kit. (If you have a son and he has a kit...) etc. Start playing outside your trite repertoire. Lately for me its been as simple as learning to play ton's of phrases over major blues and dominant chords. Its taken my live improve to a new level.
