Ha! Five years ago I was still in college, and I didn't pick up a camera until I started working at ESSDACK. I'm a pretty big gear head when it comes to video equipment, but I'm also really big into DIY. I could show you how to use a Flipcam and a few chicken lights to make a surprisingly good quality video.
If you notice that it is a guitar hero guitar. My husband however plays. We have a whole stage in our guitar (drums, 3 bass guitars, acoustic guitar, 3 microphones, amps, fog machine, lights). I play my vocal chords (he got me my own amp and wireless microphone for our aniversary last year). However, you put me in front of 500 Girl Scouts and I can lead the most fun camp songs!
