Over at School of Scratch we are gearing up to learn the BoomFlare.
Sometimes before I teach scratches, I have to learn them! Here’s what that looks like and a rough breakdown.
I’d spent some time learning using a diagram and this was my first go at locking it down slowly.
Note: the diagram in the video has extra sounds at the end, ignore those. I’m doing the first 12 sounds only.
- 00:00 – Demo / practicing the pattern.
- 01:18 – Breakdown.
- 02:40 – Demo with a faster beat.
- 03:25 – My process of learning this scratch.
Slow beat: Doc Jeezy Frank Castle is Dead Looper – Beat #1
Drilla – Mooqee vs Beatvandals.
- Vestax Handy Trax
- Raiden Fader
- Practice Yo Cuts 7″
- Mini Rig Speaker
