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. I previously taught you guys how to do the inward snare. Now, I’m going to be teaching you guys how to do the outward snare.
The outward snare sounds like this [demonstration]. In order to do this, what you have to do is first take your bottom lip and put it inside your mouth slightly like this [demonstration], so your teeth aren't showing. Then you take your top set of teeth and you put it on your bottom lip like this [demonstration]. Then you take your top lip and you place it over your top set of teeth. It will look something like this [demonstration]. It looks very silly at first, but the sound that comes out is pretty awesome, so don't worry about the silliness. So here you go.
So again, bottom lip over, then teeth, then lip and then what you do is you push air out of your mouth to make a snare sound and you have to push out really fast because if you do it slowly, it would just sound like a farting noise, now that won't sound good. If you do it correctly, it’ll sound something like this [demonstration]. That’s the outward snare.
Next, I’m going to be teaching you guys how to do the hi-hat and the open hi-hat.
