Rolling Rs

I've been trying to roll my R's for many years, and have spent many many hours

1) laid in bed at night
2) in front of Ia'Kat
3) in front of others
4) whilst in the house alone

trying for long time to do it, and today it's annoying me! I've gone through a dozen different websites today trying to find any particular advise/method that I haven't heard before, but there's surprisingly few sites on it! Know any, anyone?

Do you think you can get surgery to edit your tongue so you're capable of doing it?

I can fake it by sneaking in an "L" sound after certain other consontants (Tr, Dr, Kr, etc) but this is useless if the word starts with an R or (as in most cases) the R comes after a vowel! *And* of course this fake is audibly different to properly trilled Rs! I want to do it properly!
