    youTube for dummies

    I bought this book in hopes it would clue me in on just how I could begin streaming my homemade harmonica music videos on the "YouTube" upload.<BR/>It wasn't long (a few pages) before I realized this book is all I'll need to be a great success. Needless to say, This really got me excited and into it.<BR/>YouTube for DUMMIES has tuned me in, therefor I'm no longer a YouTube Dummie. "Smile" and happy.
