...that's my home.

Found my musicworld, playing jazz bass.

So, I give up the guitar for bass instead.

Thanks for all help, comments and suggestions and keep up the good work!

...I'm goin' down...

Hope you decide to get a real upright (bass violin) at some point.

Glad you apparently found your thing. There are more than enough geetar players in the world anyway. Wink Good luck.

I totally dropped guitar 9 years ago - sold my Gibson Tal Farlow for a bass bow) but came back eventually. I wish I kept playing during that time, and I wish I still had my old guitar.

In short, don't go selling your guitar cause odds are you'll be back.

yeah i go through phases as well. but for me it's been more like back and forth between more technical practice (usually jazz stuff) and more creative stuff like songwriting and recording. And everytime I'm in one phase I think "man, i'm never gonna go back to jazz/songwriting"
