Surely during your experience you have come across videos with various terms in English: what the words ‘scratching’ and ‘tapping’ mean. The small taps that the artists give to the different objects to create the triggers that relax you is what is known as ‘tapping’. This word in English translates as knocking. Through the fingers and nails they cause this pleasant sound. The objects with which they create that tingling in the listeners are varied: glasses, a cosmetic bottle, a comb, a book, an eyeshadow palette, a cup, a mobile.
On the other hand, ‘scratching’ comes from the verb scratch, which means to scratch. In this case, the artists, turned into influencers, rub their nails against the objects. This sound is created mostly by scratching the microphone, but also by clothing or the scalp. The fan is very wide to make your eyes fall asleep.
