Welcome to part 4 of my 9 part series of videos on the equipment you need to start scratching.
In the previous video in this series we covered the mixer. In this video, we take a look at slipmats which allow you to move the record backwards and forwards at speed while the turntable platter continues to rotate underneath.
Slipmats may seem like a minor consideration, but they can really can affect your scratching.
You need a slipmat that is thin and slippy. I use Butter Rugs and D-Styles Table Cloths.
Ready? Let’s go!
See you soon for the next tutorial in this series; Scratch Vinyl.
Happy Scratching! 😀

This tutorial is taken from Course 1 – Equipment Needed from inside my online School of Scratch. The School contains over 80 HD super in-depth, well broken down scratch tutorial videos that teach you how to scratch in great detail from the very beginning, all the way up to advanced levels.
It is the course I wish existed when I was learning how to scratch and found it really tough and frustrating. I’ve shared everything I know about scratching in a simple step by step program and continue to add new videos every month.
