It has been 40 years ago in high school since I triple tongued anything. Back then, I stayed on the same note like in H. L. Clarke’s “Bride of the Waves”. I recently picked up trumpet playing for fun since retiring. My tongue and fingers have trouble synching on the triple tongue chromatic. I have to go really slow. Slower than single tonguing. Great time to make out a practice chart!
Now after the excuses, questions:
1. Do I need to play the exercises as good as your slowest demonstration, before moving on or can I move on, but keep working on it as I move forward?
2. How important is the technique of triple tonguing chromatics to developing a more relaxed way of playing and developing range and endurance?
