Default A favor? Up for Best Social Media for The Big Rab Show Awards...

Hello everybody! I've been nominated for Best Social Media for this Year's "The Big Rab Show Awards" and would love for you to consider a vote. I remember when this forum was first announced WAY back. I'm actually member #11 here (no, really! joined 11/26/2001!) and while I've been on the quieter side overall, I still check in with this group several time a week.

In any case, I really don't mean to spam, but many of my competitors have tens of thousands of followers, so I'm doing what I can to "canvas" the area and "get out the vote." I've been having a blast making videos about piping and sharing them here with you all here and with the world and hope to make many hundred if not thousand more before my wee trip on the globe is done... Thank you for your consideration!

Thank you, everyone! The competition is pretty fierce (Drums & Roses has over 65k likes on Facebook compared to my not quite 2k), so every vote really helps. Cheers!!

Basically what everyone else had said. Thanks for your contributions to the online piping community, Matt! Your recent pipe chanter tuning video was most timely, as I'm learning the ins and outs of pipe maintenance several states away from my teacher. Best of luck!

Cheers,
Joe

I voted for you too Matt, I really enjoy your production value on each episode. It feels like you've been doing it for years, and that Bagpipe Unboxing videos have been around since the early days of the internet! Just fits in perfectly with the best stuff on Youtube.

Keep up the good work and good luck!

You have my vote, Matt. Your YouTube tutorials are an invaluable resource, and hit the "sweet spot" of not-too-advanced and not-too-remedial.
