    The first step to change is admitting you have a problem. So on with the self deprecation...WHY DO YOU SUCK?

    I'll start:

    I suck because I'm afraid to leave my paycheck for a chance at finding a career I enjoy.

    I suck because I procrastinate too much.

    I've been out of work for 3 weeks, and I don't want to go back. So I haven't really applied much of anywhere.

    I procrastinate too much also.

    Plus sometimes I'm really lazy.

    I don't improvise well. I have a problem getting the notes in my head to come out my fingers. I can spit back anything thta's been laid out for on record or tab, but pulling stuff out of my butt is a real challenge. I guess I'm doomed to coverland, that's cool though. It's really about seeing the audience enjoy themselves for me. I could care less if anyone thinks I'm a bitchin' bass player.

    You know, negative reinforcement is not good for one's self-esteem. Comments like these can become self-fulfilling prophecies. If you keep saying "I suck because...", your psyche will subconciously cause you to fail in exactly that manner.



    Ha! Who says I slept through college?

    I suck because super-models have never thrown themselves at me. Or because my money tree just won't grow.

    Take that self-fulfilling prophecies.

    Upon retrospect, I think I just jinxed myself.

    On the other hand, if you don't identify and come to grips with the source of your problems, you are not likely to rectify these problems. I'm a firm believer in addressing your weaknesses, not ignoring them.

    Hey man, you can do whatever you want. I just felt like regurgitating some buzzwords I remembered in an effort to validate the student loans I'm paying. You know, get some mileage out of my factoids.

    I improvise well. BUT I have a major problem with remembering other peoples songs.

    I love grooving......man, pink floyd is my favorite band...and I'm suprised that I know money...I don't know any of their other bass lines

    But to me it's not about the audience enjoying themselves.
    It's really about them thinking that I'm a really bitchin' bass player
