This article features a video of Short-e teaching you how to do the Chirp Flare scratch and the scratch notation diagram. The beat is also included as an mp3 download that you can loop up to practice to.
The Chirp Flare scratch is a “combo” scratch combining a chirp then a flare. You can one click flare or 2 click flare then chirp. Please see the other Scratchy 100 articles for how to flare and chirp.
Once you have the basics down, experiment with timings and swing. Next time I will show you how to do what I call the “Short-e Special” scratch!
Here is a scratch notation for this scratch:
You also get to download this beat, #8546, taken from the 85 BPM Hip Hop Instrumental Beats series.
If you are a beginner, post a video response and I will critique it and advise you.
Happy Scratching! 😀
