Gary Russell Course rating: 8/10
Being brand new to Serato scratch live, coming from Traktor pro, I had been using the 'sync' function, and as such, beatmatching was entirely new to me. Mr Bristow is an excellent tutor, and certainly knows his stuff, which is clearly evident in the DVRs. Looking forward to my next Ableton Performance/DJ course :)
