I've been on TB about six years, and over that time I've been reminded, again and again, how many generous, stellar individuals post here. So in the spirit of the holidays, I'm posting a few of my favorites here--please feel free to add your own. These threads may be old hat to TB veterans, but it was cool to look through them again, and perhaps newer members will enjoy them. Maybe some will be inspired by their examples as well. embellisher and Bassic83 help Grace: http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f8/meet-grace-her-bass-427104/ GeneralElectric starts a thread to help a homeless bass player and amazing things happen.
