    Default Practicing

    How often/long do you practice your craft? Personally, I play until I make a shitty transition and hate myself for it. I usually come back for more an hour later.

    I cannot seem to find enough willpower to actually regularly practice.. I suck.

    Haha I'm the same way. I usually mix for about an hour right when I get home from work - it's the best way to unwind for me. And then I'll do some virtual crate-digging/track-prepping later in the evening for another hour maybe.

    We're like DJ twins. After work with a nice cold one. That's how I do.

    Not enough right now as I have to store my equipment in boxes due to not having a table to use them on. I've been meaning to build a custom one for 6 months or so but just never get round to it.

    I reckon I use them for an hour every 2-3 weeks which is rubbish!

    I try to get 2-3 hours of spinning in a week, spend a lot more time searching for new tunes.

    I used to every day for at least 1 hour for the past 20 years but I never viewed it as practice, more as having fun doing what I love. These days I spend more time trying to redevelop a mental health ward and fighting off the belly. Less time to play sadly.
