Andrew Gutterson is not a legend, yet. But he's got the chops and delivers an incredible multi-part instructional on beatboxing basics. Andrew goes over beatboxing elements like snare, bass and scratching.

Beatboxing is NOT singing. It's phonically different. What started off as mimicry of a drum machine has grown diverse off-shoots like sound effects and instrument emulation.

Beatboxing has evolved from an element of hip-hop in the days of Doug E Fresh to a modern feature all in its own. Human Beatbox Magazine covers competitions all over the world exclusively for this so-called one-man band.

Rahzel and Matisyahu followed in the steps of Doug E Fresh.

YouTube provided a home for many beatboxing clips of Rahzel and Matisyahu that have enjoyed millions of hits. The video hosting site is thus credited with fueling a recent surge in beatbox popularity.
