Doodle Tonguing Routine

Post by tromaarron » Thu Jan 10, 2019 5:01 pm

Hey everyone,
I'm currently learning doodle tonguing (from the McChesney book) and I was wondering if anyone has a certain routine with it they find useful (ie certain exercises each week) or if the majority is to shed each exercise progressively?

Bob's book is great. It can also be nice to take other multiple-tongueing methods (like Arban's) and apply doodling to them.

For me, the biggest thing when I was figuring out how to do it was to pay attention to the "dle snap", to the point of exaggerating it, and making sure that the articulations are always clear. It took me a while to strengthen up my tongue to get to that point.
