You're off a bit. Also socks + wooden floor = No no
Other than that, it looks pretty good.

Your kicks don't hit the beats, it's almost as if you're just flicking them quickly. You look a bit to much like you're concentrating, try feel the music a bit more rather then strain yourself which also reflects on your stiff upperbody.

Keep it up and goodluck in your tryout

you know, all your posts seem to just be negative on other members.. and he's just giving this guy some advice on shuffling on a smooth surface, less likely he'll be able to shuffle on concrete at events etc.. it's always good to learn on a harder surface.

how am i being negative when the other guy is having a go at this guy shuffling with socks on the floor?

that's how i started off, and you can counteract concrete at events by using duct tape.

But if you put duct tape on your shoes then, when it wears off it will be sticky and harder to shuffle with

i never said it was wrong, i just don't see why shuffling with socks on wooden floor is bad? so you can 'train' for concrete floors?

im better than 99% of the people on this board yet i did socks+wooden floor, what now

Thanks for the advice guys :D.

And the reason why I shuffled on wooden floor with socks on is because if I don't, my feet will burn in a few seconds. The wooden floor in my house isn't exactly smooth. It's kinda grippy-sh.

i want to see a vid of txpc pleashhhh

also its recognised that if you learn with socks on tile or wooden floor you could learn wrongly the RM like doing slides with your feet instead of hops. I like to shuffle outside with shoes, the grip help me to do some tricks and spins, indoor with socks its to slippery for me.

Andy, i don't know you are shuffling for how long. I will try give you some tips other than shuffling in shoes on concrete :
- first, you are clearly doing hardstyle shuffle but while doing this you are not obligated to do only left-to-right... you could go in any direction back or forth and changing direction...
- you are doing the basic + basic spins + the Sacco tripple kick, try to do something new, other kicks, other moves, learn some slides, some spins. New moves and good technic is what crews are "generally" looking at when watching try-outs.
- arms : try to always put them in the rythme cause for now its like a on and off between moving them or not moving them... be constent
- straighten your back and look 3-5 meters away
- you are doing a lil of this but i think you could add a lil more, the torso flex/ext movements. When you are raising your knee, flex your torso, when you put down your foot, extend it.

hope that help

I don't think txpc was in the wrong for asking why wearing socks was bad, the post he quoted literally said "Don't wear socks." imo that isn't helpful as it doesn't tell him why.

The video looks good man, nothing I can add that hasn't been said, good luck with the tryout and practice on concrete as it will come in handy.

Warning: Quality post directly above.

You wont see a vid of txpc.  He's got the same outlook as me.  When it comes down to it, either I cant be fucked, I'm not interested, or dont need to post a video.  And am sure as hell not going to upload one just because someone wants to see / call me out.

But back on topic - socks on wooden floor, is considered practice.  And if you want this to be a "tryout vid" it doesnt exactly demonstrate your skill.  Your upper body was stale and had cookiecutter movements.

Oh, and dont even get me started on this HSR shit.
Just because a person goes to a party, does not mean that they "Party", yet simply they are at a party.
Respectively, just because someone goes to a rave, does not mean they Rave.

Oh sorry, wasn't aware i was talking to a shuffle legend ;) .. and if someone posts a video for help then people are ganna post what they think is helpful. He thought that saying shuffling on wooden floors is bad, as helpful. =/
