Alveolar Trill

by Gage
(Washington State)

I don't know if this is the best place to be asking this since this site seems to be mainly focused on English, but I guess it's worth a shot. I've had trouble for years trying to learn to pronounce the alveolar trill, mostly in relation to Old English, a language I have great interest in. It's almost painful to read beautiful poetry in the language and be unable to pronounce it the way it was spoken.
What is the best way to learn to pronounce this sound? I know it's possible.
