Just lifted the title to this thread from a quote by a member here. It got me thinking like this... Just as a reality check, where do YOU draw the line between the hobby/obsession of GAS and the art of music? For me, I have a clear distinction between time spent "playing my amp" and time spent composing and playing songs. Writing a song makes me feel like I have something to say. Without this piece, obsessing about gear is totally unsatisfying on every level. Am I missing something here? Is this the Elephant in the Room? Discuss.
