A snare scratch is a fun, simple effect you can add to your playing. By pressing one stick into the head of the drum and rubbing the two shoulders of your sticks together, you can pull out a cool sound that almost emulates a record scratch.
Try it out on different surfaces! Oh, and the more chewed up your sticks are, the louder scratch you’ll get.
