A dream about playing a guitar often hints at self-expression and creativity. But the interpretation can be more multifaceted than that.

It suggests you're in tune with your emotions and desires, and you're ready to express them.

Alternatively, hearing someone else play a guitar in a dream can indicate a longing for harmony and peace in your life. It could also mean you're seeking inspiration or guidance from someone else. The common themes among these variations suggest a need for emotional expression and connection.

A guitar is a very colorful and puzzling dream concept to interpret with any certainty. To say for certain, I would need to really get to know the dreamer's life and mindset.

Dreaming of playing a guitar could be a manifestation of your subconscious desire to communicate complex emotions or thoughts that you find challenging to express verbally.

Some additional thoughts: It's a Freudian symbol of your id's yearning for a more primal, unfiltered form of expression. Conversely, hearing another play a guitar in your dream might suggest an unconscious recognition of another's emotional state or message, a testament to your empathic abilities. It could also be a kind of your superego's quest for external validation or guidance. Both of these dreams underscore the intricate interplay between the id, ego, and superego in your psychic apparatus, and the ongoing struggle for balance and understanding.
