How many of you set goals for your playing, then accomplish those goals, and then reward yourself by buying some equipment? I plan to. Once I am 3 months into taking bass lessons I plan to buy one or more effects. Not to mention new strings. And after a long time of taking lessons, a new bass. Once I hear from some experienced musicans or bassists, an Ampeg rig. Also, when my dad stops thinking that our Boss 8-track mixer is the best, I'll buy myself a computer recording program. So of course I'm saving up money. Just curious.
