    Hope I'm not out of line . . .

    GAS = Gear Acquisition Syndrome.

    Sometimes, in a guitar-centric context, it's Guitar Acquisition Syndrome.

    The Difference between Critique and Criticism

    • Criticism finds fault/Critique looks at structure
    • Criticism looks for what's lacking/Critique finds what's working
    • Criticism condemns what it doesn't understand/Critique asks for clarification
    • Criticism is spoken with a cruel wit and sarcastic tongue/Critique's voice is kind, honest, and objective
    • Criticism is negative/Critique is positive (even about what isn't working)
    • Criticism is vague and general/Critique is concrete and specific
    • Criticism has no sense of humor/Critique insists on laughter, too
    • Criticism looks for flaws in the writer as well as the writing/Critique addresses only what is on the page
