"August 2020 - LearnFromMasters turns 5 years old today and I’m excited and surprised at the same time that we get so far with it. It’s been a rough year, already over 1 year since the channel was demonetized but somehow I managed to post at least 2 videos every week since then, and I’m very proud about this achievement. Due these strange times, my priorities had changed a little bit and because of this, for the next period I’ll try to post new videos only once a week. On the other hand, I have some good news too. Today we celebrate 5 years of ‘LearnFromMasters' with this special video I made called ‘Antonio Basoli’s Alphabet’, hope you enjoy it (recommend to watch it while drinking a glass of wine, like I did)." from video introduction
