#beginquote# I agree with the last post. As for dbl. tongue stuff, I had the most succuss when I started working only on the "K" tongue. Once I could produce a quality attack with a "K", I just incoporated it with the "T". I don't know how long you have been working it, but don't get too frustrated. It can take several years to get comfortable. Also, SLOW IS GOOD in about everything you practice. One last tip. Work your dbl. tongue with a legato air stream. You can even do this without your instrument. Try to keep the velocity of the air constant and notes connected. Then by changing the nature of the attack, you can play in a variety of stlyles without changing the fundementals of what the tongue and air are doing. William Vachiano used to teach that one should give the "impression of staccato" rather than truly short notes at high speeds. This can be done by keeping the steady air stream while using a T and a K attack (as opposed to D and G attacks which give a gentler initial attack)). Good Luck GOOOOOOROOOOOO #endquote#
