If I'm not working, or playing on the computer, chances are I'm rockin'!

First and foremost, Jesus Christ is my everything. He has blessed me with the talent of playing guitar, though I have played piano when I was younger. I like photography and going to Guitar Center with friends. I love writing music, and it consumes most of my free time. Occasionally I will play a computer game.

A while back I started a satirical series in metal production done "the right way". I am basically making a joke of it all; though many of you know metal is my favorite genre. It's been years since I have active on YouTube, and so this series gives me something to do. It seems a few people have enjoyed it already. This video embedded below is my third video in the series, and it covers scream techniques. They are (1) Goblin, (2) Demon, (3) Cookie Monster, and (4) Minotaur.
Please do not actually practice these techniques, as they are intentionally wrong. I had to drink a lot of water during filming.
The previous videos can be found in this playlist.
The first one talked about chugging/djent guitars. The second covered tracking guitar and bass, and "mixing". I have plans for further mix and master videos. What I have envisioned is hilarious; i.e. red lights mean METAL, and never mix in mono.
In case anyone might wonder, my mic I used is the AKG Perception 420. I had it set to the standard cardioid setting. I might try setting it to omnidirectional next time since I kept turning my head from the mic. That just meant more post production volume balancing. Then again, my bedroom has echo. (And since this is a joke video, I didn't film in the closet as I normally would record in - the best place I have now.)
This is honestly my old self coming alive again. Some of you may remember from the past.

Is your Granny heavy metal? I wish mine was.
Check out this clip I made on my 8 string. Everything was recorded by me.
Granny's good at cookin'
Sewin', sweepin', spoilin'
But when you ain't lookin'
I'm screamin' heavy metal
I know that it's crazy
Rockin' is my daily
Grannys should be lazy
But not this Granny
Retirement is for fools (x 4)
Granny is heavy metal
Could it be, she's mighty scary
Granny is heavy metal
Can't you see she's not so boring
Now you know my secret
Rockin' metal feel it
Call me if you need it
Granny's heavy metal
