    That's all it is pal!

    The key is not overdo it and do half hour or so a day of dropping beats, pitch riding and cueing stuff up to get your ears in gear. Once you've got beatmatching nailed, get your Phrase matching down, followed by some set structure and then harmonic mixing if it takes your fancy. Then you can start going balls out on more kit and trying out different styles and working stuff into your sets. Thats the way i did it and it took me at least a year before i was happy to play out.

    When you start hearing like the 2nd image (the DJ) you'll know that you can beatmatch.

    I think whilst you have the beats in time, you haven't phrased matched properly.

    The real question is, do you want to be a DJ? Or do you just love music and think it would be cool for people to watch you DJ?

    I have never seen such a perfectly drawn image to explain what goes on in my brain when beatmatching. Good lord. This is exactly what happens to you when you get that "Eureka!" moment - and you will definitely realize when it happens.

    What book is that from?! Must be well written.

    I read this after DJ'ing for a couple of years, and it was just light bulb after light bulb after light bulb going off. All of the things that I'd half-learned through perseverance and repetition were cemented after reading it a couple of times.

    It's not been updated - but ALL of the basics are there and it is super easy to read...
