Greetings to all.
I have a question which most of you will probably roll your eyes at. I =
have been sitting here reading all of the postings for a while now, and =
the subject of tonguing comes up frequently.
So, just how is one supposed to tongue? And when should it be used?
You see, I am a complete newbie to playing a clarinet, and I am teaching =
myself, since I can neither afford an instructor, nor is there one =
available in my area. Therefore, I just stumble along doing the best I =
can. But all this talk of "tip-to-tip" and "anchor" and "doing it =
further back on the tongue" (which sounds a bit suggestive anyway) is =
driving me nuts.
So, if you don't mind, how about a little help for a green newbie???
Dave ;-]
