    everyone has this kinda problem with certain tunes. The only way to overcome it is to get to know the tune better or with time this will become less of a problem in general. Just stick at it!

    -Take a tune that you know the bar structure of well.
    -Get the other tune that you are trying to find out.
    -Play them both from the beggining at the same time.
    -Work out what drops when and repeat the process until you fully understand the tune's structure. At the end of the day, its extremely simple maths.

    Had a female maths teacher the last of my school years, she was a funny character!

    i was at an all boys grammar school so she got bare amounts of grief. all i know is she did me well, got a B so im happy :)

    back on topic, what Smarty said was the same method i use. You'll have this problem with almost all tunes on Pendulms - Hold you colour lp, not DJ friendly tunes by a long way!! fuckin nightmare, at the back of my collection now
