[Warning - pointless rant] Damn you Gear Acquisition Syndrome! Those who have moved beyond constant GAS, what worked? I don’t *need* anything. “Need” is a loaded term, but I have several guitars and amps with a good range of sounds for what I like to do. And what I really want to do is work on writing songs. I’m currently working on a couple (one mine, one a friend’s), recording with a friend, working on arrangement, learning how to record and mix (at least at a very amateur level). I’d love to have a few nailed down so when things open up I’m ready to get back to open mics and jams, maybe find some people to form a band again. And for some reason, like many people, I still spend lots of time thinking about amps and/or guitars I might like. It’s fun to try new stuff, but, sheesh, I’d like deprioritize the gear aspect for a while. There is no cure for GAS except to change my mindset, and yet, I can’t seem to get that through my thick skull. So what helps people get over GAS? Or should I just accept it?
