Depressed? Play your guitar or any instrument.

 

Any musical instrument for that matter will probably do you some good.  What will really get you feeling better is probably an instrument that you already own.

Music has been shown to relieve depression. Thats why there’s music therapy in the hospital, because it heals people’s souls.

If you’re depressed, you could just be angry that things arent going your way. You could play the blues or if other music cheers you up, play that.

Dont practice. Just play to ease your soul, to ease the pain away. Just play gently and let the instrument be an extension of yourself and of how you’re feeling.

Every time I do this I come up with a beautiful piece of music. I’m sure it can happen for you too.
