I don't know if you guys here are familiar with this, but the BG side is rank with the disease. I even found myself afflicted with it for much of the time I've been playing...and it was only a few minutes ago that I realized that since I became far more regular here on the DB side that I realized that, while I always keep a BG forum browser open, I haven't been in the "Basses [BG]" forum more than a handful of times in *months*. This is a very startling realization. It used to be that I'd have one tab* open in DB, one in a random BG forum, and one in Basses [BG] at all times. Gradually I opened that last tab less and less, and I only now realized it hasn't been opened in a very, very long time. This forum, and probably more specifically, more serious study of my instrument(s) and jazz as a whole has basically cured my GAS. Yes, I just finished paying off my DB and I just put $500 down on another slab, but this is a thing of necessity -- I need a decent fretted toybass for university/college next year and my Samick ain't gonna cut it. I haven't been on a bass company's website in ages, and it used to be that my browser was full of cookies from G&L, Nordstrand, etc. I haven't actually read a product review in BassPlayer Magazine in months, I just flip right past them to the interviews, lessons (there was a period of time in which they dissected PC's walking lines -- very cool) etc. I gotta say, it's nice to finally breathe clean air. *Note: I use FireFox.
