Pay It Forward Entry – Week 17

This is my submission for the [Pay it forward Curation contest](https://steemit.com/contest/@thedarkhorse/looking-back-pay-it-forward-curation-contest-week-17-c280a606eeb7eest) run by @thedarkhorse and @pifc.

Well, it appears you can trap flies (or top quality posters) with honey! I have a little contest for SBI going on weekly, and I get an interesting array of people coming to comment and take part! Which means, the first thing that I do is check out the blogs of the new people that I haven’t seen before! Sometimes they are scammers, sometimes they are regular posters, but sometimes I find some gems that I can add to my list of potential accounts to keep an eye on for this contest!

Gaming Retrospectives

My first feature is @emtecks (REP 48), who has a passion for gaming and retro gaming in particular! He has written a few posts about the varies game launches throughout history (of the PC, there is NO OTHER GAMING PLATFORM!), and is currently doing a little bit of a [in-depth series of posts about the Heroes of Might and Magic series](https://steemit.com/gaming/@emtecks/that-s-it-for-the-other-one-and-now-lets-look-at-the-original). This is a game that still has current iterations of the HOMM formula being published, in addition to a number of other spin-off games. It is a series that will hold a special place in any old gamer’s heart!

Ukulele lessons and music

@heatherthebard (REP 53) is a regular in the #classical-music tag with Ukulele videos. There are some performances of Early Music pieces, but she has recently started a series of tutorials on playing the ukulele! In [this featured post](https://steemit.com/education/@heatherthebard/intro-to-fingerpicking), she demonstrates the technique of finger-picking (which is common among the lutenists that I normally play with). Apparently, if you look at the video thumbnail, the first step is to have 5 fingers (or 4 and a thumb)!

The featured post is a bit near payout, [so I am including this post of a performance as well!](https://steemit.com/originalsunday/@heatherthebard/i-will-sing-my-song-to-you-originalsunday)
