I've entered this mini competition where I've uploaded a YouTube video and need a bunch of likes to win. If it's not too much to ask, please take a look at the video? If you don't like it, feel free to dislike. I just want to see what happens. (Sorry if this sounds like spam)

FYI for those who are interested:

This is Chinese pop song back in 70s. The guy who wrote the song was a Taiwanese who eventually left Taiwan for China. This song was banned for awhile as it reflects one longing for his/her roots that was touchy and political back then. The dragon represents China, it talks about the Chinese descendants, Yellow River, Yang-zi jiang (long river). It's a song that expresses sadness, helplessness, longing, hopefulness, and it should sound majestically (at least some parts of it).

Very nicely done.  I "liked" it because I liked it a lot.

I saw the topic "I need your help" in "recent posts" and it said "by Ferret" so imagine my surprise when I tried to view the video to see a beautiful woman.  Then I looked at the thread a little closer and discovered my mistake.  But it was a shock.  BTW, I clicked like.

It just means that he thought the original post was by our member named Ferret, who is a man.  And he was surprised when he saw you and not Ferret.  It was funny. 

 

Opportunity is often missed because it wears suspenders and looks like hard work.

LOL. Thanks, @Panda-P . Is your guitar also an Epiphone? I thought it looked like the Epiphone logo on the headstock.

BTW, when I said I liked it, I meant that I "liked" your video on Youtube. But, I also liked your guitar...in the literal sense. :) Just wanted you to know that you got another vote.

thumbs-up

How do you get the quoted part in the box? I can't do that.

And yes, it's an Epiphone~

Two ways to quote another post:

1. Click on the Quote button in the bar at the top of the post you want to quote. That will start a Reply box with the quote inserted.

Or...

2. Click the Add Reply button at the bottom of the thread, then scroll up to the post you want to quote and click the Quote button. When you scroll back down, the quote should be there in the Reply box.

Hope that helps.
