    Default Reccomend some good books please on djing with vinyl turntables

    Hey guys, I'm currently a controller dj atm using a novation twitch but I can see it in myself that I am limiting the learning curve that comes with staying with controllers. So bought some vinyl turntables for a fairly cheap price, turns out they were shit but I want to stick at vinyl so I'm currently saving up for some technics (takes awhile when your 18 and just left college) Anyway it would be pretty cool to read up more on djing the old fashion way whilst I'm waiting so if anyone could recommend some good books or even dvds? then that would be cool. I've already read up on the website, just want to read some more stuff

    Books on cdjs would also be appreciated

    Watch some videos too! I don't know of any good books that are catered specifically to vinyl DJs but you could try DJing for dummies. Your best bet would be to watch a video on the basics like slip cueing and beatmatching and then just practice the hell out of it.
