Well I’d like to kindly welcome you to Tone Taxi. Come on in, welcome aboard. Here we are driving through the subdivision, real close to tech headquarters. I used to live over here, and the roads definitely were not plowed yet. I’ve got four wheel drive, it’s engaged, and it might be a little shifty, but the Tone Taxi continues. The Tone Taxi plows ahead, it has to. It’s a place for stimulating musical discussion.
The ULTIMATE Guitar Practice Routine
Just show up every day, and I'll tell you what to play!
I have a very interesting topic for today. Today I want to talk about gas. Not the kind you put in the car, not the kind you get after jambalaya or whatever you eat, the kind that’s the acronym, is it acronym or synonym, what is it? Pseudonym?
Acronym? Yeah, “GAS.” It stands for Guitar Acquisition Syndrome, and this is something that I think any guitar player can really relate to, where you just start accumulating guitars, and accumulating, and you’re always looking for the perfect tone. Today I want to talk about the symptoms of GAS.
I want to know what, when you know that exact moment when you’re like, “You know what? That’s the guitar, and I’m definitely going to buy that guitar,” and for me I know a surefire bet. I know I’m going to have a GAS attack when I go to sleep, or I try to go to sleep, and I literally just lay there in bed and think about that guitar. I think about what I could possibly do to get that guitar, and think of how awesome it would be to have that guitar. Literally I cannot sleep, I’m just too excited.
That’s my symptom, that’s a signature symptom for me, and I want to know what your symptoms are when you absolutely know you’re going to go to the store and buy that guitar. Please leave a comment below, and I just want to let you know I really appreciate you driving along in the Tone Taxi with me.
