Id be the first person to say that I am clueless when it comes to music behind the scenes. I don't know the controls, what different parts in a mixing program do, nothing. I'm not knowledgeable about bpm's, synths, whatever.
How do learn about all of this stuff? Most people who DJ and mix for fun have been doing it their whole life. I've always had a passion but I've never tried it and now I want to. Does it take just looking around on google and looking at youtube videos? Any programs you guys recommend I try out to learn the basics?
