    You need to know how many bars your intro is. I have notes written on all my vinyl telling me how long the intro and the bridges are. If the bridge of the tune that is playing is 16 bars and the intro of the tune your going to be cueing is 16 then just cue at the very begining of the bridge. If an intro is longer than a the bridge then you have to cue before the bridge comes. Eventually you'll be able to look at a piece of vinyl and tell how many bars everything is. Always count in your head and pay attention to your tunes. Hope this makes sense and helps.

    ^^ this

    ive only been mixing for almost a year.. like 9-10 months
    and practicing constantly is the only way to get better

    you can be told exactly what to do, but you'll still be shit until youv practiced heaps

    you know when your getting better to. it'll happen
