Okay, I’ll admit it.

I like video games.

There, I said.

I’m not one of those hardcore gamer guys, but I’m currently in a season of being a teeny tiny bit obsessive about playing Call of Duty Ghosts on my PS3.

I got back into it about a month ago, and I…was…HORRIBLE.

If you’re not familiar with the game, it’s essentially a first-person shooter, where you can join online teams and play against another online team.

Anyway, I was absolutely dreadful.

Like, wanna-throw-the-remote-across-the-room bad.

And yet I kept coming back. I would play over and over again, with the same horrible outcome. But I couldn’t figure out how to do any better.

Then I consulted with the great and mighty YouTube. Turns out there are a LOT of “gameplay” videos out there, where people literally record themselves playing the game.

As silly as it sounds, watching someone else play the game made me DRAMATICALLY better. I got to watch someone play the exact same game I was playing, and I could see how he managed to win (and dominate), when all I could do was flail around hopelessly.

I got better almost instantly.

Just from watching someone else do it.

That’s the kind of transformation you can expect from something like Dueling Mixes.

You’ve been banging your head against the wall with your mixes. Something needs to change.

Perhaps you need to mix the song along with a bunch of other people, and watch a couple videos of how two more experienced mix engineers mixed the song.

Then let the “ah-ha moments” come rolling in.

Dueling Mixes.

It’s so much better than video games (and slightly less violent).
