Seriously thinking of selling all of my equipment (throwing in the towel) giving up my bass playing after all these years!!! My short story: I've been playing bass since I was 17... I am now 44. I was always poor to the point that I could never afford great equipment but always managed to have equipment to play in bands and have fun. I always dreamed one day I would (when I could afford to) buy the best equipment and bass money could buy. Well, I have reached "said status" and have, after a couple of years, acquired decent equipment (maybe not the best) however, "the spark is gone"!!! I have 10K-20K worth of equipment/basses and I never play anymore. I am wondering if it's that I am finally feeling my age and that I am too old to be investing my time and energy in trying to get back into a band? Is anyone else out there in this same situation? It is really strange to be thinking of giving up what was such a big part of my life. well, thanks for listening!
