Bring On The Madness!
Time again for what’s become one of my favorite annual traditions!
Those of you who’ve been with the tune and song of the week series know that it’s become tradition around here to conduct our own version of “March Madness,” our NCAA-basketball-tournament-inspired event to crown a winning tune from the past year.
For the first two tournaments, we crowned a winner from the “Tune of the Week” series. Our first winner was Snowdrop, and our second Wandering boy.[RELATED: The “10 Greatest Hits of Clawhammer Banjo” book of tabs was based on those results. Click here if you haven’t grabbed your copy of it yet.]
This year, we’ll turn our attention to the more recently launched “Song of the Week” series to crown one clawhammer song (i.e. – a tune with words to be sung.) victorious.
Based on the “thumbs up” votes they’ve already received thus far this year, the field has already been whittled down to 16 finalists.
Now it’s your turn to vote for you favorite one! To cast your vote, simply click the “thumbs up” icon on your favorite video or videos (feel free to vote as many times as you’d like!).
Based on the votes received over the next several days, we’ll narrow things down to 8 remaining contestants for the final round. Sheer madness! 🙂
