Any DJs Willing to Teach Me?

So, RacingXTC7 (Jeff) lent me some unbelievable speakers he builds, sub and a full DJ system for my daughter's graduation party today. The whole system is awesome, 6000 watts.

Anyhow, I had a blast running it and was wondering if any DJs on the board might be willing to give me a lesson or two on how to use a system, how to mix, cue, etc... I have the basics, I just wanted to get some coaching. Jeff uses this thing to demo the speakers that he builds, and doesn't DJ himself.

Hix? Anyone else wanna come over while I still have the system and give me some pointers? Free booze and pool lessons in it for anyone will to help an old dog learn new tricks.

Its all about matching beats. Take two records that have the same amount of beats and just blending the music together. You can use the pitch control to help you match the beats.

It's been awhile since I've done it.
