I get that. Your roots are in the physical act of playing music and you follow your inclinations. My young bud doesn't have those roots, apart from a year of piano lessons years ago (which he sadly dropped) so he's gravitated to other ways that suit him ... and it fits in his small room. I saw him scratching in time using the laptop's finger pad so there's a little bit of physicality.
Just curious about an aspect of scratching. I used to have hundreds of vinyl records so when I first saw people scratching I was horrified, thinking about the pops and crackles it must cause. How long do the records last? The worst thing I ever did to a record was one time I was playing and hit a cymbal clumsily, and it was kind of like Darth Vader in Revenge of the Sith
- [slow motion] noooooooooo!
- as I watched the cymbal stand topple over on to a record (Night at the Opera
) that I'd not put away ... put a big crack in it :(
Great scratching BTW, especially the last one. I like the inventiveness in choosing the snippets and placing them.
