If not writing or playing, he likely worked on his tone.
The guy could hear the difference between nickel batteries and alkaline. He had nearly a hundred guitars, and obsessively searched for new ways to create unique and different tones. He would float the pickup switch between pickups for a psychedelic sound, would experiment with stereo delays, distortion petals, amps etc, and even played right-handed guitars the opposite way, which would emphasize the treble equalization over the bass.
I think it's safe to say Jimi Hendrix never lost motivation. Just like Michael Jordan likely never got bored of playing basketball.
You simply don't get good at something if you're apathetic. And if you're apathetic about something. If it's a struggle and doesn't come naturally, then it might not be for you.
God there's like 3 classes I wish I had the time and money to take.
Scott Eaton's anatomy class. Jordu Schells sculpting class, that Mental Ray rendering class. Heck, I'd love to do a lot more life drawing, and finish the entries from the last 3 contests I had started.
I don't get how anyone can lose motivation about something they love. It's like someone striving to become a professional athlete being bored of exercise.
