Here's a video with some words and it's pronunciation.

Also the spanish R sound is produced by pushing the tip of your tongue against your upper palate while the air is going through.

Hope it's helps.

Technically, it is considered incorrect pronunciation if you can't roll it... but someone who doesn't differentiate between 'r' and 'rr' is completely intelligible in Spanish. Don't worry too much about it.
