    i read a post about how much you practice yesterday and it's been eating at me since.

    i'm off for the summer and i've been spending my days.... running, going to the gym, going to the beach, wasting time on the internet doing nothing productive, hanging with friends, going to parties, playing lots of gigs (hey, i just realized i'm having a pretty cool summer) - but damn, i'm lucky if i play my bass 15 minutes a day aside from the gigging!!!! it ain't always like this mind you.

    today i'm starting to put in 4 hours a day! that's 16X as much as i'm presently practicing, i'm gonna rock ass next gig :D .

    Thats awsome Joe, glad you are back on track, but you gotta give yourself a break. Its a good thing to have other interests outside of music. Bass is what you play, not what you are.
