I wanted to make a video to help all my buddies with G.A.S. (gear acquisition syndrome) and to give me a reminder of steps I can take to relieve some of my gear obsessions. I go into detail about each step in the video, and the full transcript is in the description of the YouTube video. Here are the basic steps I came up with:
The first section is about Treating G.A.S. This is gear you are obsessing about right now.
2. Talk to a non-gearhead about it
3. Consider usefulness of new item
4. Try it out
5. Don’t “need” it (just want it)
6. Revitalize your gear
This next section is about preventing G.A.S., so you don’t get it so much in the future
7. Stop window-shopping
9.Maintain your gear
10.Go for your own sound
11.Write notes to yourself
12.Set realistic goals
I hope this helps some viewers. This video is about treating GAS not curing it, so don’t worry if you still get it. I know I do all the time. That chase for gear and tone will probably never end, but just enjoy it and keep it in check. ROCK ON \m/

This blog keeps it short. All posts are 500 words max. We know it's easy to get carried away talking about gear...
