As a lot of our readers celebrate Thanksgiving today, all of us have many reasons what to be thankful for - for our families, for our friends, for our countries, that we have the roof above our heads, for our world that we share with all living creatures.
We can also be thankful for the criticism we receive from our pastors and congregation about how we play the hymns too fast or too loud. We can also be thankful for all the mistakes we make in practice because they make us stronger.
But also let's be thankful for having the privilege to do work that matters and to inspire people around us.
PS Here's the video showing how to harmonize the Old 100th tune suitable for this day in all major keys. Enjoy!
