Post by Garry on Mon 28 Apr 2008, 20:13

First topic message reminder :

Hi, we're just doing some updating on this thread fixing links etc. So some pics and vids may not display. We'll be done soon, thanks MSO

So you've just found out about the Melbourne Shuffle, and you want to know more. You've come to the right place Smile

The Melbourne Shuffle is an underground dance culture, which began in Melbourne (Australia) in the early 1990's and has now spread around the world.

It's a friendly inclusive culture. All nations, races, languages, abilities, old and young, male and female, are welcome.

There's a lot you can learn, in Shuffle moves, music, fashion, art works, video, meet-ups, crews, teams all associated with the Shuffle.

So please, don't be shy, we welcome people new to the Shuffle, and we're happy to help with whatever we can. So please ask...

I pretty happy now to, I did manage to do several hardstyle 1:1 beat ratio songs in a row without missing any step, not any big misses any way, but I have way more to learn though, but now I really feel that I actually can be good some day. Good by my ideal, good enough not to bring shame to me and fellow shufflers, or something like that.

166-200 bpm is fast, 150 is fast for me, if you don't do 2/4 beat.

Thanks, I have been shuffling for about 1 and a half week.

anything over 145 bpm is pretty fast. Usually 130-145 bpm is good for shuffling. You can have faster or slower bursts of course.

No worries, I can fully recommend these guys from Malaysia, BASS AGENTS.

They're even writing some new tracks for the soundtrack of the upcoming MSO dvd documentary. Very Happy

Deep house and New beat have good and slow 100-120 bpm, then all house, acid, techno etc usually have 120-140 bpm. Hardstyle have 150 or so.

thats good. keep it up. At first it seems like there's no light at the end of the tunnel but the more you practice the better you'll become and the quicker you'll learn new things.

hi tristan, sorry to hear about your financial problems. Most of us know what that's like.

The map indicates hits on MSO, so the dot is probably indicating you Smile

When MSO starts to get regular hits from the same location, it's figured that it's a shuffler who keeps coming back. We only get the name of the nearest big town, usually where the main telephone exchange or network base is.

But we've had hits from different IP addresses in Iceland so there's probably a couple of others, probably learning like yourself, and not ready to go public yet
