Hey jammerh,Sounds like you're on the right track -- the best thing you can do, of course, is to keep playing and keep learning new songs.Here's a few things that have helped me through the years...* Get a guitar stand (or a hook for the wall) and leave your instrument out and accessible. You'll find that you pick it up a lot more often if you don't have to open the case first.* Try performing at local open mics -- that will increase the pressure a bit and force you to really master your songs. Also, perform for friends and family. Nothing formal, just keep music alive in the house.* Seek out other musicians in the area. Play with others whenever you can, regardless of your/their skill level. The community is always both affirming and challanging.* Write your own songs. Regardless of how good they are, the process of writing challanges you to be originial and stretch your skills. If you're not a lyricist, try setting some simple poetry to music -- or make up tunes for lyric sheets to songs you don't know.For more formal practice techniques, there are several places to get free online lessons -- a good resource for new things to try. Here's a few I've found:http://www.cyberfret.com/http://www.wholenote.com/http://www.guitarnoise.com/There's also the Line-6 school of interactive online lessons, but you'd have to pay for that:http://www.guitarport.com/Hope that's helpful,--Muse
