Hey, what's up with you guys? My name is Andrew Gutterson from Beatboxer Entertainment.
Today, I’m going to be teaching you guys how to beatbox. So right now, I’m going to teach you guys how to do the inward snare. Now, first when you start doing this noise, you’re going to look really silly, it's going to sound really silly. But trust me; it pays off in the end.
So in order to do this noise, you start off by keeping your teeth about a centimeter apart, give and take, and then you have your lips together. So you’ll look something like this when you start off. So [demonstration] like that. Now what you’re going to do is you’re going to suck in air to the right or left side of your mouth and then it will make a sound. Now, first it may sound like [demonstration] or something like that. What you’re going to try and strive for or you’re trying to get is a sound like this. You’re going to need to keep your lips somewhat moist so it goes through correctly, but it will sound like [demonstration] and that will sound like a snare.
Now, there are two ways to do snare and in a few minutes I’ll be teaching you the outward snare. But right now, the inward snare goes like [demonstration]. So again, you keep your teeth about a centimeter apart, you use your lips and you put them together and then you suck inward to your right or your left hand in your mouth and then this noise should sound like [demonstration].
Next, we will be going on to the outward snare which is a little bit easier than the inward, so keep on practicing the inward and when you go on to the next clip, you’ll learn the outward snare.
