Good one Chad. I knew this one from my past, but I really appreciate some of you professionals sharing the more basic tips with us beginners. Without having had formal classes, interning or having a mentor some of these “simple” tips are unknown.

I will not be using favorites for the shaking routine.

Any why an out of state highway sign?

Simple and effective tip.

I’ll be curious to see what else comes out of this blog series.

Oh, and Chad, you’ve got “mad dance skills”! ;-)

Oh, now that’s just disturbing at 1:01. Haha!

Great tip! (uh, the measuring, that is…) The dancing sort of reminds me of “Random Dancing” on iCarly! Keep ‘em coming!

This also works to divide the board into any number of sections. Want thirds? Use 9 and put marks at 3 and 6. And so on.
