    @Kandee hi! Sorry, that was a long time ago. I don't have any backup, when my PC just exploded in front of my face. It was 1st tutorial, and that was along time ago. 2014 I guess. Ben Long together with Chris Orwig, & Deke McClelland are my best teachers as I could say. Let's wait for @SebaP reuploads. :)
