Isn't that the shame of musicians in the modern day? I think that's where this whole "swag-core" thing came up: we're not willing to put in the effort to learn something, we just want instant gratification from our gear. I've been guilty of it too and it took one hell of an attitude adjustment (and a good long look at my eviscerated bank balance) to realise what was lacking in my playing. And it wasn't the gear by a long shot.
