: I have been stuck in the same position that you are in plenty of times. After awhile I just realized I needed something new. Try using a wah pedal or some effects. Even drop your E string to a low B. Try slaping or harmonics. Listen to some different music and play along with it, or adjust the settings on your amp different. And if worse comes to worse stop playing for awhile, about one or two days...depending on how much you play, and try again. That break gives your brain the times it needs away from the repititious things you have been playing and you should be able to come up with new things. That is what I do if I find myself "stuck in a rut." I hope this helps.
This maybe the time to take a few lessons. While there are a multitude of books
available, as well as videos, magazines, web pages, a good teacher can turn
you on to all the things you haven't heard or seen much more effectively than
any of the above alternatives. Plus, a good teacher will prevent you from
learning something the wrong way.
