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!

All right, these are slug marchers.
This is a drag combo to stabs.
So this is gonna be.
[MUSIC]
So a slow motion would be.
[MUSIC]
And fast would be.
[MUSIC]
All right.
That's what that is.
It's really a a drag.
What we call a slug for some reason cuz
it's like a snail being slow.
Just carry it over after a while.
[MUSIC]
And
the reason why it's called a march is cuz
we would transform this into like a,
a march thing, you know, that that.
[SOUND]
That.
[SOUND]
[MUSIC]
That military sound,
it's kinda like a march right.
So we would transform the, the drag so
it'd be.
[MUSIC]
And
without the transforms, it would be that
drag.
[SOUND]
So
from not transforming, the drag backs,
it'll sound like.
That's where you get that, that term
march.
[MUSIC]
All right?
One more time, really slow.
[MUSIC]
Stabs.
Drags.
And that's it.
[MUSIC]
Slug march.
