default Shuffling Problems, anyone got some?

Post by rednwhite on Sat 19 Nov 2011, 14:16

First topic message reminder :

Hey everyone, basically, this is kinda a place where we can voice our opinions on what you need help with, and just to talk and compare. This is also something Garry suggested. I'll start:

I have a hard time getting in rhythm with that bass, and it feels like I can't hear it. Second, everything about my shuffle seems clunky, and my running man can't match the speed of any song, so it gets me down Sad


Any tips or things you guys have learnt?

i think your pushing yourself ahead at times,beacause youll have a great flow one go,then youll try and keep up with the music,keeping up with the music is good,but you want to focus on the step itself,so instead of every beat,try every other beat on-step:)

Um I think it looks pretty good. But what a lot of people do (myself sometimes) is lift their backfoot up like they are actually running on a track. Instead, it's best to keep your foot low to the ground....
...that sounded better in my head. Haha okay I'll make a vid explaining what I'm saying tomorrow.

What I think I need to work on is everything that is mentioned, but spreading my feet, and making my "strokes" kinda longer.

yeah like bonez said make your phats, jacket ect. Me and bonez had literally no funding but some how we managed to make everything that we needed, i have to remake mine because of the fact that they were to flimsy on the bottoms but eventually ill get them back together. and i agree with what bonez said abut the running man, rather than keeping focus on the form of your running man we think about timing the steps, but take it in stride and it'll look perfect. i guarantee it, me and bonez learned everything we know on our own. just practice is all it takes.

hehe congratulations. It just takes a bit of time for your body to synchronise and it gets easier and easier the more you practice. Pretty soon you won't even think about it, you'll just do it.

What do you guys feel about shuffling to lounge/electronic? For example: Clash by Caravan Palace? (Link below)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=youtube_gdata_player&v=CMDFLqirIoM

Personally I think it's pretty fun to shuffle to old throwback/funky tunes Very Happy

As it gets more into the song it sounds pretty good, as long as theres a good steady bass then i think youre fine.

Either way i think as long as it has a steady beat than you probably can dance to it.

Yeah that's key for every pop dance song no matter what the dance. Jerk, shuffle, break all need steady beats

Its harder for me to do that, i hate hearing the grinding of my feet against the ground, the music has to overpower it for me to get into it more.

Yeah hard to make money if the crowd doesnt know what music youre dancing to, plus it looks better. I doubt you could do that here in florida. bit harder.

Oops sorry eastcoast I didn't see your question but my youtube channel is Purekitsune and I may have a video by monday but it really depends on how busy I am.

Haha its weird because my parents just, I guess officially found out that I'm into shuffling. My parents weren't mad or anything but my mom was surprised and asked me "How did you get into that?"xD She might even buy me some phat pants and if she doesn't I can see if my aunt could make them for me:)
