Ok, so I got to thinking about some of the mistakes I have made over the last 10 years of playing, whether they were mistakes in the handling of people, gear I bought, or recording "I wish I could do-overs". One of the biggest mistakes i think I made was buying an ART Nightbass, thinking I would need endless amounts of reverbs, flangers, phasers, and comressors. Got rid of it, still wish I had never sunk the 800 bucks for it. Oh yeah, I also bought the foot pedal, which just compounded my frustration. <img src="http://www.jlomas.com/BassPlayers/Jon/Images/Nightbass1.JPG"> I wanted to see what other mistakes you all might have made over the years, and maybe some others (newbies or oldbies) could learn from.
