Rolling the 'r's
 
Does anyone know of and good online videos for learning how to roll your 'r's?? I can't and it is really frustrating...
Thanks from Casey.

rolling the r's
 
It's a matter of practice. Try this. It's from a child's song which you can look up on the internet. Roll all the r's except for the ones in "porque" and "cortado." If you do this about 10 times a day you should be proficient within a week. It worked for me.

El perro de San Roque no tiene rabo
porque Ramón Ramírez se lo ha cortado.

Good luck!

One little trick for rolling the single Spanish r for the much used Spanish
word "mira" (look) is to use the English letter "d" in place of the Spanish
"r." Mida. ME-dah Does this make sense?

Practice these phrases for learning to roll your Spanish R's:


Erre con erre guitarra
Erre con erre barril
mira que rápido corren los carros
cargados de azúcar
del ferrocarril.

You can also find the version with the lyrics of this song, and then practice singing it...


(If this is too difficult, don't despair... continue with "erre con erre guitarra")

In my opinion this is the most useful piece of advice so far in this thread. Phrases with lots of trills are ok once you're half-way there, but getting half-way there is the hard bit.

Singing gets lots of air moving past the tongue, and that makes it easier to trill. In fact, I've noticed the some Hispanic pop singers will trill single eres, which are only supposed to be flaps, when singing.

I speak both Spanish and Italian. Italians roll their "Rs" just like Spanish "R."
So if you can speak Spanish and roll your "Rs" that is something you will not have to learn again when trying to learn Italian. Also Italian vowel sounds are the same as Spanish vowel sounds.
