I'd have to say that one of the coolest parts about music is the idea that you are creating something bigger than yourself. To break it down even further the art that you create is something that outlasts the instance in which it was born. One of the most humbling experiences is having someone tell you that you have inspired them in some way... It may happen all the time or rarely, but it is something to be treasured. There are people on this forum that inspire and I am incredibly thankful for it. I still remember the musician that turned to me when I was 14 and said "Don't be another guitar player, be a bass player and you'll never be without a band"... Life changed! It's good to tip your hat to the people that share their expression, experience, knowledge... etc. in a way that fuels you. It is even better to consciously be that inspiration to someone else. Today... Cheers to you JohnK! Now I just got find a way to pay it forward.
