After searching many threads on the topic of growling I have never come across an exact definition or any techniques that would be helpful in helping me to develop this skill. Please if you have any advice on achieving a proper "growl" during improv or know of any specific articles I may have missed, I would greatly appreciate any help I can receive on the matter.

Heres an example of the sound I want to achieve: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aWRtHyUEUos

people do it all sorts of different ways, though I'm also a singer I can't do the humming thing:/ I make an almost throat clearing noise in the back of my throat and it sounds like a perfectly good growl to me[:

While the 'hock a lugie' method works, I like the flutter tongue/purr like a kitten approach.

Yeah, I'm a flutter tonguer, not a growler.
