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 the swing flare, you know it very well,
is open close and
then follows, tech tech, transformer, two
times and now we can try to.
[SOUND] Incorporate this over the record
motion, okay?
But, I, I think it's, it's more
comfortable when we watch the demo at
first to show what it means, or how it
sounds, or how it looks like.
[SOUND] So okay, now,
we start record motion, reverse baby
scratch at first, and we open-close.
[SOUND] Then follow transformer two times.
[SOUND] Then follow snare for open.
[SOUND] The backwards snare.
[SOUND] For close and then transformer.
[SOUND] Then open close.
[SOUND] Then transformer, and then.
[SOUND] Snare.
[SOUND] Tech.
Okay, try it.
I am very excited about your video

I hope you liked the content of the
lesson, and bye for now, Alex.
