Learning to SQratch? Learn from 1 of the Best Qbert!!!!!!!!
James M. Myrick | Michigan | 11/17/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Yo, if you are new to scratching or you wanna learn some new tricks from the master DJ Qbert buy this DVD. Q breaks down over 20 scratches (looping) at 4 different angles the camera work is amazing the best I've ever seen from any DJ video/DVD. This DVD is loaded with features and very helpful DJ tips from set-up and weights/balance, slip mats, tuner control spray, how to fix a leak, and a whole lot more. Q then has 4 different characters (Punt Rawk, etc.) you can battle against yo his outifts are crazy funny. Also this DVD has a few easter eggs with a few more characters. Buy this DVD it's worth every penny and yo I just got Do-it Yourself Vol. II @ the Scratch Tour 2003 and it's just as good as the first one so when you get a chance pick up Vol. II both showcase one of the Greatest SQratch DJ's of all-time.....

"This DVD gives a very good introduction to all the basic scratching techniques. The multiple camera angles and soundtrack options are brilliant - in fact it's the first time I've seen these DVD features used in a useful way.

Qbert's personality makes this fun to work with. He doesn't try to drop jargon or come off as some kind of hipster. No bragging about being one of the world's best DJs (although he is.) His style is very casual and conversational - it feels like you're hanging out with him at his house on a saturday afternoon.

Note that Qbert scratches in a "hamster" style (with the crossfader flipped from right to left) - This might not be your style. And if you don't have a hamster switch (Normal/Reverse) on your mixer you won't be able to copy his moves. Personally I don't use the hamster style but I was still able to learn a lot from the disc.

Highly recommended."
One thing...

"Love it. I like how they loop the lessons over and over, but they should have looped the same one a few times before they moved on to the others. I have to keep rewinding. And there are no different angles like they say there are. But overall still a happy purchase."

"This dvd is amazing -- I've been in percussion for about 8 years and recently turned to learning how to scratch. Q-Bert displays how to do each scratch in a very clear manner and goes from simple rhythms to more complex adding things from each previous lesson. This was definitely made for people like me who don't know any scratch djs around and want to get into the art. Don't expect to get these down over night.. Like Q-Bert, you're going to be practicing for a long long time to get some of these things down."
