of the Tongue The placement of the tongue actually changes throughout the range
of the instrument. It
is probably not necessary to point this out to students, because most make
this adjustment naturally. For that reason, I teach "TOO" and "DOO" respectively
for Staccato and Legato tonguing.
When two different
tones are sounded within the same partial, using no tongue produces
a glissando effect.
Use lots of air
and blow through the glissando.
The slide may
be moved slowly or quickly for the desired effect.
