I absolutely agree about single tonguing being essential and primary, and
double tonguing being secondary to that. However, not working above the
2nd register? It's much harder than 2nd and below, but surely you've heard
Bob Springs "Flight of the Bumblebee" which starts, double tongued, on a
high F# (or so)? It can be done, and very well. I've heard others do it,

Now,on the other hand, i can't do it...yet.
