    Good instrument vs good technique...it's like a chicken vs egg thing; good technique is easier to develop with an instrument that inspires you to pick it up every day. If, in your mind, the only instrument you have sounds like shit and you decide not to upgrade it because it's all due to your poor technique, neither will ever improve.

    Get/build a decent instrument, and leave it out of the case, where it begs to be picked up often. Even better, one in every room...

    Meh, Im not a "tweaker", I find something I like and just leave it there. Problem with my basses is I just bought a good bass, and have a shit bass, and its tough to not compare them to each other. Didnt know if replacing pickups makes a big difference, or just a tiny bit in the grand scheme.

    Great advice. I tell this to every beginner who asks for one tip to getting decent quickly. When trying to get some initial dexterity and muscle memory, you can't beat frequency, even if it's short duration.

    Short duration might even be better. There was an interesting book out a few years ago by Jamie Andreas (cant remember the title) about correct practice for guitar and guitar playing philosophy. It was focused on elimination of tension primarily, something I still find myself struggling with when learning new pieces...it's amazing which parts of the body will get tense when playing guitar when you start to recognize it. I get it from my hands to my neck, ankles, back.
