If you have ever tried to learn something from youtube, or you have tried to follow along with somebody you probably have run out of momentum at some point. While it’s great that you can pause and rewind, you still need to be able to see and understand what is going on, for you to gain confidence in taking those skills yourself.

  Hi all, it’s all been go here recently. My site went down and my backup drive failed, so I’m starting from scratch. If you visit for my video tutorials please don’t worry too much.
