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’m going to be teaching you right now is the hi-hat and the open hi-hat. The hi-hat sounds like this [demonstration]. It’s just a very simple sound and then the open hi-hat sounds like this [demonstration] which is basically the hi-hat but elongated. So what you’re going to do is you’re going to start off with the word tisk. Then you’re going to take the word tisk and you’re going to shorten it. So you have a sound that sounds like [demonstration].
Now in order to get the closed hi-hat, you shorten it even further and you get it really, really small until you get something like this [demonstration]. That's your closed hi-hat. Then your open hi-hat sounds like this [demonstration], which is basically taking the tisk sound or the tiss and elongating it, so it sounds something like an open hi-hat. So again, the shortened version which is the closed hi-hat, which sounds like this [demonstration], and the open hi-hat sounds like this [demonstration].
After a while of practicing, it will sound really good and then you’ll go to something like this which will sound like [demonstration]. So go on and practice that and next, I’m going to be teaching you guys the chewy scratch.
