Dance Dance Revolution - Day 2

Note to self: Don't play DDR and then go to the gym. And don't do that after a strenuous day at work.

Needless to say, I'm in a bit of pain right now and tomorrow isn't going to help. I've got more work to do. I'll probably lose a pound or two this week, but at what cost. I'm probably going to be Stepmania-ing so I can keep my hand-eye up to par. Still frightened about the tourney.

Beginner Tip #2 (Beginner&Light actually)
1 2 3 4
1 2 3 4
This/is/the/beat
This/is/the/beat

Some people don't have rhythm. Some people can't dance and it's funny to watch them dance. What do these peopl need? You need to capture the beat of the song they're listening to. If you follow the beat, you can hit your steps with better precision. Tap your feet to the song along with hitting the steps to better grasp that beat.

The higher the BPM (beats per minute) the more beats there'll be in the song. This is why playing slow songs first will help you recognize how fast the beat is and will help you further along in the game.

I say that this is a Beginner & Light tip. Learn the songs now, because once you get to Standard, you're going to deal with harder steps that will still follow the beat, but will include harder steps and when you hit Heavy, you'll have Chaos steps, which are 16th steps or steps that won't follow the song at all.
