In this section, you can have call and response sessions with experienced skratch djs. They'll skratch the questions, and you skratch the answers. Here, you can try to copy them or just freestyle. Try out the skratches you've learned and put them together in your own way. It's that easy!

When you get better, you can post your own call and response "sessions" for the training dojo so that others can skratch along with you too!

So once again you're gonna leave the fader
you're gonna cut the sound in half and let
it go.
it's three notes, as well, but it's in
Let's do it really slow.
See the position on the fader, it's closed
on the last one.
All right, just kinda, it's totally
different from an orbit, but
you start off with the fader open, all
right, and you end with the fader
open again, just but, this one's in

So let's do the original flares.
Same thing.
Start from the beginning.
And then on the end,
it's just kinda like a reverse chirp.
And let's do the opposite of that.
Which is the reverse.
Original flare.
You get that, all right?
Go really, really slow.
look this is open, on that movement there
it's off.
Then you open it again.
You open it on the forward movement.
There you go.
And so those are original flares in
OG flares in reverse or just reverse
