Hi Elazar,  

There are two ways to make a growl sound:
1) Accumulate some saliva at the back of your throat, compress your mouth  
cavity and let it rumble while playing.
2) Use a flutter tongue technique: let your tongue relax and flutter while  
you are playing the note.
I use the first method.
Good luck!
