The main thing to spinning (obviously) is beat matching. In my experience there isn't an *easy* way to teach it, you just have to keep trying and one day it'll just *click* and you'll be able to do it. Then it's just practice makes perfect as you learn more about measure counting. Then onto scratching (if you want to).

Having said all of that, I would recommend either finding someone with a setup you can play around on or just getting your own setup.

It takes a lot of trial and error. Once you pick up the basics of beatmatching, you can build on that and do just about anything. Once you get beats to match up instead of making a galloping noise, it's a lot easier to play around with the other elements of mixing. Mixing jungle (do they still call it that?) or D&B is a little more difficult to do because you are matching hi hats instead of bass hits. It's not overly hard to learn, it just takes a time commitment and a good feel for music.


*EDIT*
What I was trying to say is that I have a set of decent turntables for sale if you are looking for an affordable way to start out with equipment that isn't pure shit.

+1!!
A lot of people get screwed over by thinking they wanna be DJ's, goign out and buying a ton of equipment, and then either not liking it, or not being any good at it.
Find someone with a setup, a good one, and try it out.
Remember, try to practice on good equipment, cheap stuff makes dj-ing harder, and much more frustrating.

All you need is two turn tables and a microphone.

Put the needle on the record...

Hey Adrian, Laptops are the way to go these days. If you are serious, i will ask my DJ buddy. He spins at Ned's in Sterling sometimes.

Adrian, get a DVD called Scratch (best buy has it), it is a great lesson into the world of the DJ and "B Boy" scene, and it has a pretty good intructional section on the 2nd disk. lots of interviews with Q-Bert, MixMaster Mike and the such. they may be more hip-hop oriented, but the basics are the same as far as beat matching and the learning process goes.




you just wanna start cause you know DJ's get mad ass.....j/k

Thanks guys.

Son, that would be cool if I could talk to your boy. I am hearing that a laptop to store the music and a mixer is the way to go like the Numark CD95

Matter of Fact, that is the exact reason why I want to talk to some DJ's and see what their trial and errors were like.

Eck, Isn't it always about the poon? I bought 2 more glasses, that brings the total tally to three operational, and 1 that is semi operational.
