How To Throat-Sing
STEP 2: The location of the tip of the tongue

Japanese page
Place the tip of your tongue against the roof of your mouth, as if pronouncing the letter "L". Slide the point of contact slightly away from the roots of your top teeth. Press the tip of your tongue quite firmly against the roof of your mouth.
In Japanese, we don't use the "L"-sound at all. (The closest sound we have is like ["L" + "R"]/2. That's why we can't tell "L" and "R" apart.) If you have "L" in your native language, at least this part of the instructions is well understood!.
