    Morning Benzy, official welcome and all that.........
    Secret to triple tonguing is loads of repetition, I still find myself tripling away whilst out on my bike (not with instrument!) or doing any mundane activity. It will become a habit.

    PS it also helps if you eat lots of sausages! Frees up the tu tu ku muscles :D

    Heya, welcome!

    My teacher made me walk around school going de de geh (and many variants of the same to get it in different pitches) all day long. It kinda worked. Lots of things can be learned away from the instrument itself! Hope this helps you too.

    heya Benz, welcome to the site.

    I'm also 17 and working at the tripling (along with everything else) and just generally aspiring.

    nice to have younger peeps on here to keep the 'wise' ones on here in check :biggrin:

    get stuck in :tup
