Hey, what's up? My name is Andrew Gutterson from Beatboxer Entertainment. Today, I’m going to be teaching you how to beatbox.
What I will be teaching you right now is the chewy scratch. Now, this one takes a long time to master and it takes a long time to learn. I’ll tell you it took me about a year until when I do this correctly. But I’m going to try my best to teach you the way I learned it.
So what you do is just start with the word chewy as in something is very chewy or steak isn't cooked correctly and it's a chewy steak. So you say the word chewy and then you can use the word chewy in different ways. So starting off, it sounds like chewy, so [demonstration].
When doing the chewy scratch, what you’re going to do is you’re going to place your tongue on the roof of your mouth and the tip of your tongue towards your teeth so that when you push out air it creates a whizzing noise [demonstration] or like that sound, so [demonstration].
Then what you’re going to do is you’re going to push out harder and faster. So it will sound something like this [demonstration].
After a while, after you’ve practiced and practiced and practiced, it will sound something like this [demonstration].
Now, if you’re wondering how I got the fast chewy scratch, it's saying chickadee chew. So what you do is you go from chewy to chickadee chew but you say it very fast. So like this, so chewy [demonstration]. Chickadee chew [demonstration]. Chickadee chew [demonstration]. Then you got your chewy scratch. The next I’ll be teaching you, the vocal scratch.
