Music Education Will Give You G.A.S...

G.A.S. (Gear Acquisition Syndrome) is a common affliction among the musically inclined.

It's a clear progression - you typically start your musical journey with a minimum investment, acquiring an instrument that can 'do the job', help you through the initial stages, and often continue to deliver the goods - till the bug really BITES.

 

Now you're having fun, you're discovering a whole bunch of new things, and you start wanting some new gear. Maybe it's just some new strings at first, but soon it's a new amp, or a new keyboard, some fancy cables. Pretty soon, things have moved to one more guitar, another cool effects pedal, a second keyboard (it comes in Ferrari red!) and so on, and so fifth. 

 

This is G.A.S. It's usually incurable, but can frequently go into remission, depending on the status of your other EMIs, and how quickly family financial overseers catch on...

We aren't going to help you alleviate the symptoms, uh-huh.
