    Lately I've been having reocurring dreams about gear I'm GASsing over. Does anyone else suffer from this terrible symptom of GAS. The dreams themselves are rad, but when i wake up to find no Aguilar/Epifani stack in my living room I get severely bumed. Should i start seeing a therapist about this? Please tell me I'm not alone...

    je, dreamed about my dream bass (geddy lee bass) for a couple a days ago, i was giggin or something, my memory is kinda blurry. but i played some chops with it :cool:
     
  3. I rock out in my dreams , so theres no room for GAS, well,, .................................... :bassist:
     
  4. I voted no, too busy rocking to sleep cos I cant sleep. I have the problem of not being able to turn off the light cos my stingray and jazz are the first and last things I see every day. Oh and my amp and pedalboard.

    Sadly enough, yes, I've done so in the past.

    Yes and no. I've never dreamt about gear, but I've had dreams where I'm playing with gear I don't own (and usually have zero GAS for. Just different gear); gear has never been the focus of a dream, it's always been ancillary.
     
  7. A few month ago I had my first dreams about bass and I've been playing/gigging for 8 years.


    But it really wasn't about 'bass'. I was playing air bass in front of a crowd. Pretty cool dream. oh, and then I had one where I was burning my bass on purpose. I was just feeding it to a fire, and I love my bass! I told my drummer about that dream and he said I should probably quit the band and spend my time at school and then get a 9 to 5 job. I'm still in the band.

    Jazzin' ...Bluesin' and Funkin'

    I had a dream that I owned a whole pile of gear, basses, guitars, amps, drums, keys, so much to choose from. It was weird, in my dream it was all in a room in my house which is not really a room in my house.
     
  11. this hasn't happened to me...not that i can think of, anyway.
