Today I would like to show you how to do a funky little scratch named the “Joe Cooley” scratch. Named after the DJ that invented it.
It is a pretty old school scratch that actually never gets old and always adds funk to whatever sample you are scratching.
I am using Beat #1 – Glide to the slide from Stay Cool – Beats for Scratch Practice Volume 4 which you can is available here. I am also using the vinyl Superseal by Dirtstyle / Thudrumble.
- Start with the fader open
- Push the record forwards
- Pull the record back in 2 parts (tear)
- Do 3 chirps in succession
Here is a scratch notation to help you break it down even further:

Hope you have fun with it!
Happy Scratching! 😀
