I recently read this quote and have been reflecting on how true it is for being taught how to scratch.
Techniques and skill and even a point of view are often handed down, formally or not. It’s easier to get started if you’re taught, of course.
But art, the new, the ability to connect the dots and to make an impact–sooner or later, that can only come from one who creates, not from a teacher and not from a book.
– Seth Godin
I am very happy if I can help get you started with scratching and point you in the right (hopefully funky) direction. BUT… I will be even happier if you then go off and create your own scratch combos, new scratches and style. Then you can inspire and teach myself and others!
How did you learn how to scratch? Did you reach a point where you went off and experimented by yourself? I would love to hear your stories in the comments below.
Happy Scratching! 😀
