    Beatboxer Andrew Gutterson demonstrates how to create a basic beatbox beat.

    Andrew Gutterson: Hey, my name is Andrew Gutterson from Beatboxer Entertainment. Today, I am going to teach you how to beatbox. So far I have taught you a group of different noises starting with bass drum such as this, or the Throat Bass or the Techno bass drum which is. Then you have the closed hi-hat, you have the open hi-hat, you have the Inward Snare, you have the Outward Snare, you have the Kickdrum and you have the Chewy Scratch, you have the Vocal Scratch.

    Now what I am going to do is I am going to teach you how to do a beat or I am going to do a beat combining all of the different noises and then I am going to teach you what you can later on when you become very acquainted with noises and these beatbox sounds.

    So here I go. As you can see, certain noises go together really well. You can take a bass beat and a Kickdrum; you can take a hi-hat and a scratching. You can take a bunch of different sounds and put them together. It's your choice on how you want to do it, but from what I have noticed, I really like the way the Kickdrums go together or the Snares go together and just take it high and figure out what you like to do and what's comfortable for you.

    Every single beatboxer has their own way of doing things. Every single beatboxer sounds differently. So not everyone is going to sound the same, not every beat is going to sound the same. It's up to you and your own creativity. So go practice beatboxing and enjoy.
