Does anyone else think its sad that any forum related to gear, (i.e. basses, amps, strings, etc.) get more than 4 times as many posts as those that relate to technique or self-improvement? (everyday!!!) I admit myself that I am drawn more to gear than technique, who would have thought that bassists could have so much GAS (gear aquisation syndrome, i think )? But why is it that we are more worried about our gear than our own ability to play? Any thoughts or comments?
