When taking things seriously, one should learn the art of prioritizing, especially when money is involved. Why? Buying things for a “serious” hobby may not come cheap, especially when it comes to music.
Coming from a family of musicians, I for one understand how important it is to have the best things when it comes to our common hobby. This is true especially for instruments since they are the foundation of what our hobby is all about.
Most of those that are now hooked on music in our family are also college students, which mean very, very expensive materials and other miscellaneous costs for school. But since we know that music will always be in our blood, we also understand the importance of giving the best to our children to fulfill their dreams. I guess prioritizing for a gibson at Guitar Center is a definite list topper for now for my little brother then. Good thing he’s very frugal about his expenditures at school that cutting costs there wouldn’t really bother him much.
