Every so often I release a free full length scratch video tutorial from inside my School of Scratch so you can see where we are up to with our training and decide if the School is right for you.
The following lesson covers the Delayed 3 Click Flare:
The Delayed 3 Click Flare uses the 3 Click Flare, but starts off in a delayed position, making it feel like a closed fader scratch – a slice to transforms. This is also called “phase shifting” and can be applied to other scratches too. It is an important concept so make sure you spend some time getting familiar with it.
Make sure you are comfortable with the following techniques:
Here is the Scratch Notation:
If you need some help with understanding how to read this diagram, watch my other video here.
Try starting your scratches at different sounds in their sequences to get different results. This will automatically create you many new scratches! A good scratch to start with is the 2 Click Flare. There are 6 different possible starting points!
I hope you enjoyed this lesson!
If you like what you see and would like to get access to my growing library of scratch video tutorials, head on over to SchoolOfScratch.com.
Each of my tutorial videos feature:
- Clearly broken down, slow and simple step-by-step instructions, to give you the maximum chance to grasp the techniques at a realistic pace.
- Timing examples so you can see how to apply the technique over a beat.
- An overhead view so you can see all the action clearly.
- Multiple cameras to show you different angles to further aid your learning.
- High Definition for maximum clarity.
- High quality audio and voiceover.
- A QnA session at the end so you can practice with me to cement your technique.
My videos are somewhat longer than many other scratch video tutorials because when I was learning I found it really hard to learn from quick demos. I want to break things down for you completely and eliminate the frustration associated with the scratching learning curve!
If you are thinking of joining the school and find this particular technique too advanced, please don’t worry! I start from the very beginning, so you can build up your skills slowly at your own pace.
