Beatboxing is a hard enough skill to master, especially if you are anything like me and have no rhythm. Add a musical instrument to the mix—especially one that’s pretty much never used in beatboxing—and you’re basically a music legend.

Reddit’s r/videos community discovered the amazing Medhat Mamdouh via his YouTube video. In it, he executes a pitch-perfect freestyle beatbox riff while playing a recorder at the same time. Link would be so proud.

Hopefully Mamdouh tries to beatbox with other instruments in future videos. A saxophone would be really interesting to see.
