Thank you, Dan! You might consider putting a very brief version of your Principles in the description so that the student can glance over at them every now and then. I found myself muttering to myself, 'Now WHAT was Principle 4???"
Thanks Dan! Great vid...one suggestion, based on your Bon Jovi reference, the intro music should be more rock than funk
