1. Control GAS and focus on my current rig.
2. Practice almost daily.
3. Practice more old school Motown.

Happy and Prosperous New Year everybody!

May your GAS be partially satisfied in 2013!

1. Spend more time listening to drums.
2. Spend less time worrying about rhythm guitar.
3. Breakdown and purchase the kind of amp that I usually make excuses not to buy.

1. Get a 5 string. Seriously. Or at least a fretless bass.

2. Learn how to walk, it's a damn shame im in jazz band and I still can't improvise my own lines.

3. Get better at faster passages.

4. Learn how to properly do a full set-up.

Get comfortable (and good) at soloing.
Get a new bass perhaps? A 5 string would be nice.
Learn all the notes on the fretboard.
Maybe get an upright?
Write more songs (ok, it doesn't specifically apply to bass, but my bassline writing skills are somewhat lacking).

That's about all I've got.

I did nothing.
