I have been playing violin for 13 years and fiddle for about 3. I am getting burned out with my music. I spent the last couple years being very enthusiastic about music, however things seem to have changed. Im at a plateau where I dont think im getting any better, and Im growing bored from play the same songs over and over again. I even picked up mandolin, but that didn;t seem to help much. I am wondering if any of you older musicians have had year long lapses were you gave up music for awhile, and then came back to it later in life with the passion of a young’n once again?
