William, you're absolutely right.

But it's not gear that gets in the way, it's the obsession with it. So much time and energy devoted to endless acquisition or tinkering.

Time that could perhaps be better spent honing creative musical skills - composition, arrangement, performance.

I believe that once you own, or have access to, enough good quality gear, thereafter it's time to focus on the music, not obsess over the gear. If we obsess over gear it's because we are afraid to challenge ourselves in the creative domain. It's a neat sidestep that many of us make to remain in the comfort zone.

I'm not trying to project onto anyone - but I know there will be others who know exactly what I am talking about.

Music can make me get right up out of my chair and start dancing or it can get me so pumped up I have to walk around the block.
It can also knock me back and make me sit there and cry like a little baby. This shit is as powerful as any drug!!!

As a recovering gear whore, I agree with this.  Maximizing the benefits of what you have and using it's  full potential trumps having more of them.

These days, I would much rather spend the time and money modifying a piece to make it perform better than using my old approach,  which was "add to an arsenal".  

It's very easy to get caught up in gear... craft is another thing... and that's maybe what is at the crust of this thread... gear vs craft.

This Gearslutzism (is that a word Very Happy ) is just as alive and well in this forum as in Gearslutz.  Take a walk over to the remote recording forum on Gearslutz and you will find very thoughtful and informative threads there.

One of the things I often wonder about is how do we older people transmit our accumulated knowledge these days? When I was a young musician lots of older musicians went out of their way to help me understand how the world worked, but we saw each other every day on sessions. I feel an obligation to do the same, but I don't see much opportunity. Kids today are trying to figure it out for themselves and don't seem to know that there are people who've been down the same road.



IMO As it pertains to audio engineering & other elements of the music business, this is happening in a big way on online forums such as PSW & others.

The collective knowledge base around here for example is weighty & probably runs much deeper than ever would have been found around the average studio water cooler back in the day..

One thing fora can't replace is hands on experience..

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Collective_intelligence

Collective intelligence
Wikipedia


Collective intelligence is a shared or group intelligence that emerges from the collaboration and competition of many individuals. Collective intelligence appears in a wide variety of forms of consensus decision making in bacteria, animals, humans, and computer networks...

Edit

Some figures like Tom Atlee prefer to focus on collective intelligence primarily in humans and actively work to upgrade what Howard Bloom calls “the group IQ". Atlee feels that collective intelligence can be encouraged "to overcome 'groupthink' and individual cognitive bias in order to allow a collective to cooperate on one process—while achieving enhanced intellectual performance.”

Collective intelligence (CI) can also be defined as a form of networking enabled by the rise of communications technology, namely the Internet. Web 2.0 has enabled interactivity and thus, users are able to generate their own content. Collective Intelligence draws on this to enhance the social pool of existing knowledge. Henry Jenkins, a key theorist of new media and media convergence draws on the theory that collective intelligence can be attributed to media convergence and participatory culture (Flew 2008). Collective intelligence is not merely a quantitative contribution of information from all cultures, it is also qualitative.

True that.
