    All of these, especially the last one. Always led to new stuff because of Gilson. Pay attention there. Guarantee you'll learn something. The-Breaks is a good resource as well as the Sampleur site. I also spend time researching about the labels that I like, session players, etc. And also a lot of times I'm just looking for things I've known about and wanted for a long time and just either haven't found yet or haven't had the money to buy it at the time.

    I tell myself that but it never happens. It's rent week for me so no digging but hopefully I can make up for it next weekend.

    This could help you get you started on the breaks tip. Search results for “Drums”.

    Bring along a portable turntable if you can. If not, bring your phone and earbuds and look up some of the album tracks on youtube. I know this takes some of the fun out of digging, but I'd only suggest doing this for more expensive vinyl where it's more of an investment. Or just use the dollar bin shotgun method.

    Get to know the people working at the record store. If they see something come in that's your style, maybe they'll hold it for you before putting it out.

    Find an artist or genre you like, then create a Pandora station. Discover new artists, repeat.

    How many of you guys do this. At my spot they seal all the records(bastards) preventing this from happening. Seems smart though.

    That has to be one of the best terms ever.

    And that pandora idea is a good one too.
