 Re: Double Tonguing
Author: Philip Caron

There's also the lateral tonguing technique, where the tip of the tongue alternates left-to-right and right-to-left, touching the reed in the middle - something like that; I've only seen one brief description. The idea sounds harder to control in terms of, say, length of notes, where I'm wondering how one would vary between legato and staccato at a given speed. However, it suffers no added difficulty in altissimo, and some people demonstrate amazing speed with it, possibly faster than with other multi-tongue techniques.

I've briefly tried several versions of multi-tonguing, including lateral, and they feel doable enough, but I'm saving serious work on them for when my slow single-tongue improvement hits a wall.
