How to snap three times at once. With Both hands multi snapping it will give you six snaps in less than than a second. And about twelve snaps every full second. Challenge your friends to a snapping contest. I've gotten a lot of good comments from this little talent.

    Keep the pattern going, and eventually you can make up your own patterns and pauses in-between the snaps to make beats with your snaps. (right left right left right right)


  • Once you have it all down, really try making a few patterns and beats. It's a lot of fun. Just walking down the hall snapping to a cool little rhythm.
  • Don't multi snap for too long, or your hands will get very very tired. If they do, shake them out and rest them for a few minutes.
  • Don't try to position your thumb on your pinky finger and then snap. There will be slipping sliding and cramped fingers. In one move just bring the thumb up on to your pinky and on to the multi snap.
