These are the ‘Bass’ or ‘Kick’ drum sound, the ‘Hi-Hat’, and the ‘Snare’. The reason these are the fundamental sounds is because you can make almost any type of rhythm using only these 3 sounds. Other sounds like sound effects, fills, singing etc are additional layers that you add. There are various snare sounds that you will learn on the beatbox course including ‘The Rim-Shot’, ‘The Inward Snare’, ‘The PF Snare’ and ‘The Classic 808 Snare’.
Fills are simple sounds that we make that act like bridges between other, usually more complicated, beatbox sounds. Using fills is an amazing way to make your beatboxing sound a lot more professional and intricate. In this beatbox course we use a fill consisting of the sounds ’t’ and ‘k’.
Flow is the element of your beatboxing practice that makes it your own. In other words, developing your flow is developing your own unique style. In the online beatbox course you will practice special exercises that have been designed to help you develop your own personal style (or ‘Flow’). For example, the video lesson will instruct you to keep certain elements of a rhythm the same (the ‘Bass’ and ‘Snare’, for example) and to use your own creative flair or experimentation to complete the rhythm (by adding ‘Hi-Hats’, ‘Fills’ and other sounds).
