Hey there fellow beatboxer, this time it is going to be all about click rolls:
It considered to be one of the most difficult beatbox techniques to explain and to master. We have found an easy way to explain it to you.
In this video we are teaching you what is click roll and how to get the feel of it, And In the end of it all to clicks just like Doug E. Fresh.
Ways of doing click rolls
There are two ways doing clicks : First one is Full click ,the second one is half click.
Full click: It’s when your tongue goes from the top of your mouth and reaches down and touches the bottom. you can hear an example in snoop dog’s drop it like it’s hot beatbox video I did.
Half click: Is when your tongue doesn’t touch the bottom of your mouth , it just clicks the top and stays in the middle of your mouth (between your teeth).
In this tutorial we are using the half click roll , cause it have a shorter sound and it enables you to do them faster one after another in comparison to the full click rolls that “take more time”.
Try doing this beatbox practice in this basic mode with 3 sounds: using the classic kick and half kicks one after another.
For example: one kick as a (P) and then two half clicks (CL) (CL), and just repeat it in a loop. if you are a beginner start in quite slow pace, so you can adjust the timing and than slowly rise the pace.
In a notation it’s gonna look like this : (P)(CL)(Cl)(P)(CL)(CL)(CL)(CL) in a loop. (it is really 8 eights tempo but we wouldn’t get into this now.)
Why our way will make you learn faster click rolls?
If you practice it for a while, it will give you the feel how to do the original clicks cause the positioning of the tongue is the same.
Actually our way gives you more control over your clicks then the original technique, because, there it’s all about your air flow in side your mouth and each time it’s a little bit different.
