    Happy Thanksgiving to all at Gretsch Talk! I’m thankful for this community, filled with knowledgeable, friendly, helpful people who share a love of music and guitars. I usually describe it as my Facebook, where we can discuss many things and support each other, kept within bounds by skilled moderators.

    Im thankful for my family who love me well and who fully support my guitar passion and for the friendships that we share here on GT. Also pretty astonished and humbled by the life that ive been given to lead. Truly blessed. 18 months cancer free and thankful for every day.

    I am thankful for discovering guitar this year…for how it’s consumed my existence…morning, noon and night. It keeps my mind from thinking of anxious negative thoughts, mostly.

    Family, friends, and reasonably good health. A roof over my head and food on the table.

    It's a Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow American G-T members! For everybody else ... Happy Thursday!

    I think about this question alot. For me , I would have to say having two wonderful parents who were actively involved in my brother and I upbringing. They steered us straight and made us toe the line when necessary. Nobody gets to choose their parents.....its luck of the draw. So many times I read and hear about kids left outside in dirty diapers while the parents are inside the house strung out. Or when I see a family of four out eating at a restaurant, everyone with their face glued to a cell phone and no family conversation taking place. I'm thankful I grew up never experiencing any of that.

    Family. That's the one important thing in my life.

    Like most of us family. For me, daughters and grandkids and a wife that has been my best friend for over 50 yrs.

    I’m thankful I have been able to live in one of the most beautiful places on earth for the last 50 yrs.

    I miss my friends and family that are no longer with us but I’m thankful for the time I had with them.

    I’m thankful that I found this place, friends I have not met yet.

    Family & friends...... A singular thing I'm thankful for this year is the Covid vaccine.
