Those tear scratches are tough! Great lesson!
They are tough but they get easier the more you practice them!
Such an important scratch. It teaches your hand how to stop on a dime then restart.
This is a great lesson! I’ve been an EDM DJ for > 20 years and your lessons on YouTube (along with these online classes) have inspired me to go on a journey to learn to scratch. Absolutely LOVE how you teach the history, science and creativity all at the same time. These are things I’ve felt were missing from the many numerous “do it yourself scratching” schools, dating all the way back to VHS tapes :D.
Hey Rob, is there a link or download for the song option and scratch tool used in this course? I was curious to know. I’m also using a controller and not vinyl (ddj-sx3), regardless it’ll take a lot of practice but is there a difference between the two ?
There’s a slight difference between controllers and vinyl. So you just have to be mindful of making the necessary adjustments to your touch. Email us at email@example.com if you need the scratch tool music.
Do you recommend waiting to master these first three scratches before moving forward to the next set of three?
Definitely. Pace yourself.
Whew! trying to do those tear scratches reveals how weak and uncoordinated I am (right now)! It’s even worse when I switch hands! However, I BELIEVE Rob when he says the more you practice them, the easier they get. I can darn near do the Mix Master Ice Stab Scratch with both hands now thanks to practicing one of his tutorials, and I can’t even get to my turntables as often as I want to. I KNOW I can get this too. I’m having so much FUN!!!
This is Great, I think people overlook the basics not realizing the advanced scratches are based on these very techniques, and Mastering them make everything else fall in place. I unfortunately had a Stroke in 2019 and pretty much had to re-train my left hand, so this is right on time.
Where do you get the scratch sounds from
We went you an email with the Scratch beats. They come in the welcome email but if you have trouble finding it. Drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send them directly.
Good luck with the tutorials!
This is one of the core reasons I joined the brolic army was to learn scratching techniques at a pace where I can practice and concentrate on scratches the standard way vs hamster style. Great forearm and move with precision practice. On to part 2 after a couple of days truly practicing what I recorded today vs next week when I’ll start the 2nd installment
Im using this to teach my less dominant hand which is left hand record right hand fader, my dominant side is strong in terms of scratching ability, but my less dominant hand is ridiculously bad, im finding this really beneficial
