    For the past couple of weeks I've been going through withdrawal from life, completely, and focussing more on my future. Sadly playing bass has been one of those things I've withdrawn from. I hardly pick it up anymore. I don't check the forums, the classified ads, anything anymore. I'm mostly just too occupied and concerned with work, my education, and career. I guess this is sort of a way of saying goodbye...for now at least.

  3. Don't sell your Stingray until I have more money.

    On a more serious note, I think that is totally understandable. If playing bass isn't what you want to do right now, then there's no reason to force yourself to do it. It will always be there in the future.

    Take it easy man. Get other things in order and then come back to it when the time is right.

    An old friend of mine, and my last bass teacher sort of did the same thing. He spent 16 years gigging and then finally giving piano, drum and bass lessons on a regular basis. Finally he just decided to give it up. The money wasn't coming in and his priorities were out of wack, so he sold EVERYTHING (which I still don't totally agree with). But, he got things in his life in order and as far as I know, he's happier for it.

    I hardly ever play as well, drums or bass (but the GAS is still there for some reason). But it's nice to know it's there when you want it.

    I can understand giving up TB, but not the bass. I don't know of anyone who's put it down and hasn't regretted it.
