    Great explanation. I’m new to GitHub and did not understand some terms while reading on the gitHub help but it made lot of sense after watching your video.
    Thank you for your work

        After creating a branch, I tried to pull down the changes from remote (Actual Repo) by following your instructions. Please see the below message I got and What am I doing wrong here? Thanks.

        Neel@NEELMALLEPALLY ~/Forked/Samurai (upstream)
        $ git pull upstream
        You asked to pull from the remote ‘upstream’, but did not specify
        a branch. Because this is not the default configured remote
        for your current branch, you must specify a branch on the command line.

    try

    $ git pull upstream master
