Do you have the Gear Acquisition Syndrome (G.A.S)?
There's a big chance that you do if:
- You spend more time researching gear than playing music
- You are never satisfied with any gear purchase and want more
- The idea of owning gear makes you more excited than actually owning the gear
Luckily, I'm here to help you and suggest 7 steps you can take today to limit the impact of GAS and get rid of it eventually.
In this video we are going to discuss the 7 steps:
STEP 1 - Plan your gear purchases and stick to the list
STEP 2 - Change your pedals only if they have REAL limitations
STEP 3 - Unsubscribe from pedal demo channels
STEP 4 - Delete your account on gear forums
STEP 5 - Delete your apps and shortcuts to websites like Craigslist, Reverb.com or eBay
STEP 6 - Limit yourself to 5 demos or a maximum of 30 minutes to research when planning to buy a new guitar pedal (or piece of gear)
STEP 7 - Create musical goals with clear deadlines If you do all of this, you have much bigger chances of succeeding eliminating the Gear Acquisition Syndrome in your life.
I recovered 5-6 years ago and I'm happier by making more music and taking my musical projects to life. If I did it, you can do it too!
