So she bought some better butter, better than the bitter butter,
put it in her bitter batter, made her bitter batter better.

Tongue Twister Tips 

Practice To A Steady Beat

It's a great thing to do a tongue twister from the top of your head with no music involved, but don't forget to practice these tongue twisters along with a beat.

Doing these exercises can help you speak faster, but you have to be able to go beyond just speaking and think about how your speed will match the music.

Beginner singers and rappers are at risk of going too fast along to a beat sometimes when it comes to their tempo and phrasing, which takes time to practice.

Practice At Varying Tempos

You will benefit from learning how to speed phrases up at varying tempos. Practice going through a very fast tongue twister with an instrumental if you can.

Take it a step further by plugging that instrumental into a DAW (digital workstation) like Audacity and changing the tempo in the settings with each try.

This will give you more confidence to rap or sing slow songs, mid-tempo songs, and insanely fast ones as well.

It will also help you when you start really learning how to switch your flow up to varying speeds, all in the same BPM (beats per minute, a number that tracks the beat per minute in a song). 


Start Slow, Then Work Your Way Up

Don't try going extremely fast straight from the start because this will make your tongue twister challenge seem impossible and can cause you to lose motivation.

Start slowly at first, getting a feel for how you want to spit the flow of the phrase. Slowly speed it up as you go along until you feel confident to take it to the next level.

Practice Making Different Rhythms 

As a singer or rapper, take it further than just reciting the tongue twister in a way that each syllable counts for the same amount of beats.

Play around with the phrasing of your tongue twister and add emphasis to certain words that you think stand out in the phrase. Try to mimic the flow of a popular song where a rapper or singer spits their verse very fast.
