“This is the tricky part - the beat, and the chorus, at the same time.”
Whether seasoned professional or spluttering beginner, these are words that I’m sure most beatboxers have heard. Perhaps they were some of the first words you heard before you even started to learn to craft? For many, “If Your Mother Only Knew” was the first beatboxing they ever heard.
I remember when I first heard it:
Tom: Yo dude! You have to check this out! This is crazy.
--- Tom wants to send you “IYMOK.mp3” do you Accept? Or Decline? ---
--- You have accepted the transfer. ---
--- Sending of “IYMOK.mp3” is complete. ---
Me: Huh? Is that one guy?
Me: What is he doing? He’s like a drummer?
Tom: No, he’s singing and beatboxing at the same time!!
Me: Beatboxing? I’ve heard of that, isn’t it some kind of martial art?
Tom: Nah, it’s a kind of vocal percussion.
Me: Oh ok? Hook me up with some kind of link.
Tom: Don’t know…
Me: I’ll google it.
Me: www.humanbeatbox.com. I’m gonna check it out.
