 RE: Extraneous Clicking

The help has been great. It seems I was tounging too hard. (I must have developed some bad habits this summer). I've removed most the click from over-tounging, but what remains is a puffing sound, sort of a ghosted note before each phrase or articulated note.
I think that I'm doing ok when it comes to stopping a note. My problem is that I don't know how to take my tongue off of the reed properly. I can't seem to start a new note without some undesired noises (either clicking or puffing).
I'd like to work on Ken's suggestions, but I must admit that I don't know what a LA motion should be. I'm not very good at that sort of thing. I also wonder about tounging on the tip of the reed, because that causes the reed to emmit the most clicking sound.
I should also admit that my recording equipment is fairly pathetic, but I'm just using it to improve my playing, not to make any permanent recordings.
