So these are tear skratches.
I don't know if you, other instruments,
you know, like let's say a violin,
they kind do that.
They, you know, with their bow, they do
the little pauses.
These are pauses in the skratch.
Kinda, these are really good for record
[NOISE] Those are tears.
All right, so
what you're gonna do is start off real
slow, with this, this is a rudiment.
Like in drumming they have different
rudiments, you know, different ways of,
of doing patterns, but this is a, a basic
rudiment right here.
[SOUND] We're gonna go.
Let's try one forward and two back.
That's the way I learned.
I learned this tear first.
So it's one forward.
[SOUND] And then two back.
One, one two.
One, one two.
One forward, two back.
When you get fast and you do these swirls.
They're called swirls when you do the
But still one forward, two back.
after a while you can become really
Right now we're going to be kinda rigid.
But after a while, it'll become really
So that's one rudiment you could do.
That's one forward, two back.
After you get good at that then go to two
forward, one back.
Right two forward and then one back.
Oops that's two forward, two back that's
Now actually, if you can get both of those
rhythm and sound, one forward two back,
and two forward one back, then you can do
the two forward and two back.
That's known as a clover tear.
But there's, so there's two ways of really
Well, actually, there's two extremes.
You can do it really stiff or you can do
it really smooth.
[SOUND] So stiff would be.
And then the being really smooth would be.
you can go
There's different ways of of doing it
like, in different rhythms, too.
You can go.
One two one two one two one two one two
one two or
you can go one two one two one two one two
one two, you know, like.
Say these are our one two you can this is,
this would like one two one two one two
one two, you know, kinda even, but
if you put it like that you go one two one
two one two one two.
You know what I mean?
[SOUND] So this is.
Then if you came closer, it'll be.
Anyway, that's later.
Let's try doing the two forward, one back.
I mean, I'm sorry, one forward, two back.
then, after you do that, two forward, one
And then two forward, two back.
And those are tears.
Then after you get really good you can do,
go to threes.
[SOUND] And then start mixing the numbers
up you can go one forward, four back.
I don't know two forward, 1 million back.
[LAUGH] So, you kinda just mix it up as
you get better, but those are tears.
It's actually pretty difficult to do.
It takes a lot of practice.
As you you can see I still need practice.
