    Had a really good lesson today. I'm not feeling GAS strongly at the moment either which is good.

    Not sure. It was probably too cheap to be original but it was very relic'd and looked amazing. Sounded good, played as well as a Jazzmaster will play.

    Does anyone notice a strong correlation between being happy with your actual playing at the moment and a decrease in GAS with a corresponding correlation between being frustrated/low motivation and a sharp increase in GAS?

    Basically, GAS increases substantially when your playing is not fulfilling you.

    there is no correlation. your mind is just tied up with the holiday season approaching.

    I've never once been happy with my playing and I've had ebbs and flows of GAS.

    I have found in most of my hobby endeavors equipment acquisition tends to tie inversely with how much the hobby is currently fulfilling me once a basic equipment level has been reached.

    Burned out on cycling? I need a new (bike/gears/helmet/shoes/pedals). Same sort of thing for me with most pursuits.

    then you'll start playing a song that needs a little delay action. or chorus. or wah. or would sound so much cooler with a single coil pup.

    Must be the reason why you've had the same boyfriend forever.

    I find it's not fulfillment in the hobby exclusively, but how fulfilled you feel in life generally. Bad week at work? - "Oh, a new CE-1 will solve that."

    I'm the opposite. I buy things when I feel good. If I am depressed over something I withdrawal and grow a tumor.
