Throat Scratch

Throat scratching is a high-pitch and rough scratching technique that can be mixed with the other scratch techniques and is one of the simplest to use. It can be performed inwards or outwards!

Standard Beatbox Notation (SBN)

How it's done

The throat scratch is based on a continuous, forced Classic Rimshot { K }.

  1. The sound you need to make is from the throat - a bit like the beginning or end of a yawn. You want the non-vocalised croaky sound.
  2. Once you've mastered this sound, you then need to do it high-pitched or falsetto and practice patterns such as "wa-a" and "wa-o-a-wa-a".
