How to make a trilled R sound?

I've been trying forever! All that comes out is the sound of it beginning but quickly diminishing because I don't know how to hold it, I flick my tongue on that specific spot and everything people have told me. But I want to know how you figured it out? Any tips or tricks?

Trilled R's are the two R's in a spanish word; perro, cerrar, aburrido.

Thanks for any response!

If this is in Spanish, it should be in the Spanish Fourm so that someone that speaks Spanish can help you.

Hope someone does!

In French, you need to differentiate between the flipped r, the trilled r and the uvular r. In my experience, from having taken many singing diction classes, one usually uses the flipped r in classical music and the uvular in popular music. In speech, it is similar, but is determined by the regional accents. I have only rarely heard the trilled r, either in sung or spoken French. If I am incorrect, I am sure someone will speak up...
