Every time I stray to far from the "my thing", I end up regretting it. Seems I'm most happy with a solid body guitar, a tube amp with some nice reverb/gain, and maybe a little wah pedal once in a while. Yet I go through this cycle where I think I'm "bored", so I talk myself into an effects gadget - I've tried several of them. I always end up thinking "nice toy...why did I buy this thing?", and I return it/sell it before you know it. And I tell myself I won't do that again. Messing around with these gadgets ends up being a waste of time, and I'm not practicing and progressing as a player. I've done the same thing with guitars. I've got a couple Strats, a Tele, and an LP - a nice mix, I can play any of them and they feel good. Then I thought I had to have a semihollow, and I hardly touch it. Then I got a Gretsch hollowbody with a Bigsby - a great guitar by all accounts - and after a couple months, I'm now realizing it's not my thing either. Instead of focusing on "my thing" and excelling at it, I keep distracting myself with cool gear that isn't practical for me. Instead of making progress, I end up getting sidetracked. This is a downside of GAS I think. Anyone else experience this?
