    Hi i’m ghost I have been beatboxing for a while but never really got the technical side to it, down and worked out. What would be a good starting technical beat? (I have just recently joined HBB, it is a good informer) Thanks for your time!

    A good starting bpm I think is around 150, but mess around with it.

    b – kickdrum

    t – Hi Hat

    k – k-snare

    A starter technical beat is b-t-k   t-k t-k    b-k t-k at around 150bpm

    A more advance technical beat around 240 bpm is prr      ptk ftk       pftk      ptk ftk     pftk     ftk

    prr – tongue bass

    ptk – A roll of the  kick drum => inward tk => k-snare

    ftk- Do a soft fff sound by placing your top front teeth on the front of your bottom lip and directly after do an inward tk

    pftk- A roll of the pf snare to the inward tk

     

    If you have questions, feel free to ask!

    Thanks D-Koy, I will get practicing. Once I get it down I will submit a video to the Feed back Area and you can tell me what to do from there. Thanks again!!!

    The beat pattern that helped develop my tech was k b ts pf t b

    And you can mix and match those sounds into longer patterns too, like:

    b t b k b ts pf t b pf t b k b ts pf t b k b ts k b ts

    or something like that

    Instead of looking at the written notations, is it also possible to learn these sounds based on the way you hear it and what mouth movements you used to create those sounds? 🙂

    I absolutely agree with D-Koy, that’s the same beat I used when I first tried getting faster. If you’re like me, and struggle to read notation, think of it as:

    Boots and cats – tika tika – boots cats

     

    After mastering that beat, add more tks (tikatikas) into it, and eventually add some pehK or tkK. Basically, learn the basic beat, get good at it, and then build it up.

     

    One thing to remember though, is that it is hugely important to be CLEAN. I’d rather hear a perfectly executed, clean beat at 120 BPM than the same beat at 160, but sloppier. If you’re clean, even your most basic beats (think back to boots and cats) will sound really good.

    Tryin to make a change :-\

    I agree with you kbbx regarding your final thought.  When I am beatboxing, I focus on creating a smooth beat at a slower BPM and than transition into a faster BPM while maintaining the same smoothness. : )
