Simply, what are you goals for djing? Good bedroom dj for you own pleasure or are you wanting to play for the big crowds?
When i started this hobby, and i really started at this spring when i bought a proper gear (cdj's and a mixer). Before that i only played around with a shitty ass cheap controller, it was just for my own pleasure. Maybe sometimes to enjoy my friends at a houseparty. But now, when this thing had pushed me ahead my goals are changed. No, i don't want to become a man who moves big crowds or anything like that. But now i think that i want somedays play music that i love, and what i want to share with other peoples, in some small club events i.e. at my regular drinkin bar. It's a bar that doesn't play top 40 shit and it's allways dj who plays the music. And there is a lot of other places in here that are on the same music line. Also i know few peolple who organize those kind of small parties outside etc. And that's the spot where i want now to be. I have set myself a target that in next summer i'm ready to go and offer me to play for public in those places. Almost a year time to practice and get comfortable for mixing. And expand my music collection. And offcourse, go for those home parties for practice playing for an live "audience". I think that biggest mount to climb is my stagefright.
I'm interested you other nOObs goals. Why are you starting this thing what is very expencive and timetaking?
ps. I posted couple of my first mixes here http://www.djforums.com/forums/showt...t-Century-pt-2 and if somebody can tell me how to improve my mixing i would be very grateful.
