[Harp-L] Double tonguing
Sat Jul 9 11:24:34 EDT 2016
"DIDLEDO" would be more similar to triple tonguing.
The common syllables used in double and triple tonguing(I'm a trumpet player$ are:
TA KA or DA GA(more legato) for double tonguing. The first syllable is made with the tip of the tongue behind the top teeth. The second syllable is made with the middle/back of the tongue on the roof of the mouth.
Triple tonguing used for fast triplets is TA TA KA or DA DA GA.
It's important to keep the air flowing while interrupting it with the tongue so it has a smooth sound. Thinking DA GA will help with this.
