This week, I teach you how to do the Flare scratch.
The Flare scratch is an open fader scratch. Start with the fader open, release the sample then cut the sound in 2 by closing the fader then opening it again. You can flare on the forwards record movement and the back.
Once you have the basics down, experiment with timings and swing. Flare forwards and back. Practice hard as next week I will show you how to combine this with the chirp scratch to get one of the funkiest scratches around!
The beat is #8528 taken from the 85 BPM Hip Hop Instrumental Beats series.
