Not sure if it works the same for bard masteries, but with the taming masteries I can gain without targeting anything. The skill check happens when you use the skill, not when you select a target. Could be different with bard masteries. You might want to try it to see if you get gains and maybe save your armor. At the very least you should remove your armor.
