    If you go see one of these guys in concert, what exactly are they doing on stage? Aren't they just standing up there playing recordings of the music that they've programmed a computer to play?

    This is a serious question and please don't make a mockery of it.

    Begin answering now.

    See, I still don't know. Do these guys know anything about music or are they just computer programmers? Would one know what a major scale was or the key the song they were playing was in?

    Some go for the vibes , some for the tunes , some to catch the dj .

    Andy C still spins vinyl most of the times .

    most of the newer laptop DJs are kinda lame in my opinion. Most of the older DJs learned using vinyl and can actually mix . As far as musical knowledge some are well schooled in music while others are just dudes that could spin . When I go see a DJ I'm not concerned if he knows what a major scale is , I'm concerned that he can rinse it the fuck out .good tune selection and tight mixes are what I'm hoping to hear .

    Sorry, mate. Nothing appealing at all in that paragraph.

    What I'm trying to get at is, are these guys musicians or are they just fancy versions of the guy you hire to play music at your wedding reception?

    I think there are two types... those that just play it, and those that create it and play it. Skrillex comes to mind.

    that a pretty broad question man . There is thousands and thousands of DJs all with different backgrounds man . But for non fans of electronic music lets just say a fancy version of a wedding DJ will do .
