Nice one Kelly!!!!

Congrats!! I struggle quite a bit coz i haven't spent hours on it yet. Can do it well on trumpet but can't seem to get the hang of it on Flugel as easily. It will come with practise!!

Keep going!!

Well done, I've been trying for 5 years+ to triple tongue and it just comes out like a a ball of fluff playing a digeridoo... :p

And no I do know 'how' to do it and can triple tongue fine when not playing but as soon as I try and play it everything goes wrong! :?

Must have a mental condition or something... :(

Well done!

Like you I struggled with this but in the end I gave up "trying" and it just happened. I'm not very good but it's coming. I find it easier at the moment to triple tongue than double tongue though.

Cheers, Greg.
 
He, He! When opening this thread titled "The Greatest News Ever" I expected to see that you were pregnant - instead got double tongueing etc! It just shows how's people view on the greatest news ever can be so different.

Congratulations anyway.

Well done!! :D Be careful you don't start double tounging everything though, cos' that happened to me and then I found I couldn't single tounge anything faster than a hymn!! :? I happy to say that this problem is now in the process of being rectified by my teacher. :D
