Okay, so let me explain a little bit. So, I actually quit my job a couple weeks ago, but have been planning this since January. My main goal in this year off I am giving myself is to improve my recording and mixing skills, and I have already been making anime covers for the past year or so off and on. But, now I have decided it is really time to buckle down on doing something I love if I ever want to make it into something I could maybe do for the rest of my life (writing, recording, producing music.)

Why anime covers you ask? They are short enough where I will be able to complete one at least every other day and it gives me time to study and practice my mixing/mastering techniques. Although, I will probably do some video game related ones here and there too. I also plan on adding vocals in a few months if not sooner to some as well.

Anyway, if anyone is interested in checking out any of the stuff I do here is a link.

Good covers, You play well and the production is also quite well. I chose to subscribe, and am looking forward to listen to more of your covers. Using the metal genre to make covers never gets old, in my opinion, and anime openings seems to be very popular on Youtube, so I think it's cool that You're commited to it!

I will advise You to use social media to promote your music, it's the best way to let people know that You are an active musician, but even then it takes a long time to build a succes full Youtube channel.

I wish you the best of luck!

Thanks! Yeah, I am on a couple social networking sites to help promote, and yeah I will be expecting this to take quite some time. Especially since this last week I was a bit busy with things so I didn't get as much material recorded as I hoped hahah.
