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 okay, the other possibility is to move
the record backwards after we have opened
it to fader,
that means we open and then we go into the
backwards stroke.
And now it follows one click performance
and due to the backwards stroke.
[MUSIC]
We go basically in a reverse one click of
it, okay.
That means one once again, the other
possibility is to move the record.
[MUSIC]
Forward.
Then we go into the backward.
[MUSIC]
And finally, yeah.
So, this additional step to ensure that we
can repeat the whole sequence and
we make it possible by closing the fader
with addition in motion through which we
go back to the initial point of our
sequence.
So, once again.
[MUSIC]
Then reverse one click over.
[MUSIC]
And.
[MUSIC]
Sack.
Okay?
So, the same you can play it by hand or as
an release.
[MUSIC]
And.
[MUSIC]
This was the other possibility.
So, and now it's a really nice combo when
you play it as an odd numbered sequence.
That means.
[MUSIC]
Let's say every record motion
has a duration of a one eighth.
So that means one eighth.
One eighth for the backward.
[MUSIC]
One eighth for the backward.
And now we create odd numbered sequence
when we move the record from this
positioning as a one 16th.
So in a higher motion intensity, yes?
And this is the demo.
[MUSIC]
Okay, for the sake of reputation and
yourself training all this pattern step by
step for you.
The first variation.
[MUSIC]
Over beat
[MUSIC]
Yeah.
[MUSIC]
So this was the first variation and
the second.
[MUSIC]
Goes like this.
And.
[MUSIC]
So, and the odd numbered performance was.
Forward.
[MUSIC]
Yeah, over a beat.
[MUSIC]
So, okay, I hope you like the idea.
You can also derive a reverse pattern from
this by stopping, at first,
where there's a backward stroke open, and
then.
[MUSIC]
One click over it and finally.
[MUSIC].
Yes?
Okay.
