    Learn all the sounds you can starting with the basics of the btk’s first and keep practicing first. Don’t be that one guy who just spams throat bass everywhere cause if one of your friends do record you, you will cringe. And one more thing, if you’re asked to beatbox by your friends and you want to be technical although you just started… just beatbox a 5 second routine like B Hi S slightly faster:(Hi S Hi S) B S and if your sounds are clean that will impress them enough and so when practicing weird sounds like the liproll just practice it when you’re alone.

    When you’re already 6 months in on beatboxing try to learn and master the tk’s and peh-k’s because that will help you become more complex of a beatboxer.

    As for flow, don’t switch your tempos too much or too oddly.

    That’s all 😀

    Where do you recommend someone who lives in a city like NY go to practice “weird” sounds? Right now the only place where I can be really loud is on the Williamsburg bridge, where I can’t hear myself 😀

    I partially agree with your advice but the more beatbox progresses as an art form the faster people learn the foundation. For instance, Gene only beatboxed for around 3 years and won the GBBB, so to me, it really depends on your level of interest. Also, I think you should try to switch tempos at times and try to do something that sounds “odd” because you never know what that odd technique or style could eventually evolve into. My message is that you should be open and experimental even if you are a freshy. Strive to be unique, people appreciate that!

    Although I don’t live in a city maybe going to a park during warm weather and when it gets colder maybe try gathering a group of other beatboxers to all pitch in and rent out and area to bring amps and microphones to practice sometimes. Also depending on whether you rent out or own a house or apartment you could potentially sound proof a room if you have cash to spare. Hope this advice helps 🙂
