    well, for a long time, ive had people ask to hear me, but i havent been able to record it.. i finally plugged in my laptop and did a 30 second demo of me scratching. mind you, i messed up in the beginning, but i recover. i do plan to record the entire song, but for now, this will do. i hope you guys enjoy

    (Bonus) guess what song i am scratching to!

    I like it. The fumble in the beginning isn't much of a problem because as you said, you recovered. The only problem is that you turntabled just over the song. If you lowered the volume of your scratching, it would have sounded a bit more mixed in.

    I mean, even though you may not be extremely experienced, that sounded pretty simple to me. I scratch too and that's a bit simple. If you did some more complex rhythms with your scratching, it would also have sounded a bit better.

    But nevertheless, that was pretty good.

    yeah same. I do a bit of scratching and I think you should try some scribbles, etc and use different scratching samples. Maybe use one for the verses and another one for the choruses or something. They were some pretty good scratches though...keep it up! :)

    what sucks is im running on belt drives (cheap version of a turntable), so its a little downfall. ive been scratching for 2 years, but im still expanding my vocab of scratches. i totally understand that i scratch very simple, and i want to learn alot more.

    dude...you should get some direct drive decks (or at least one)
    I got a good deal on eBay for a Technics SL-1200 M3D and I've had the deck for 10 months.

    I'm just starting to get into scratching... that sample you used to scratch, I've heard LOTS of people do it... is it a specific sample, or can you edit the record to make a scratch point for it?

    It's a specific sample but it's used on many break records. What do you mean by edit the record?

    Like take a pin and make a little notch on the inner part of the record after the recording is finished.

    Where could I get ahold of this sample?

    well, there is a type of record called a Break record. it has nothing but samples to scratch with, and songs to scratch to. look for em in music stores.

    my personal fav is called "sin city breaks" so, look for em.
