    Hey TM,

    I've been practising double tonguing lately, it goes quite well now, and my teacher said to me that I master double tonguing when I can play this:

    MNOZIL BRASS Kill Bill-Green Hornet - YouTube

    When I heared it, I was quite stunned, and now I want to be able to do it myself.
    I've tried it, but it's not coming along very well, I'll have to look at some other pieces to practise it more (any suggestions?). I thought it might be a challenge to do for some of you guys.
    The sheet music is on here: Concertos, Etudes & Duets

    Thanks,
    Gijs Vis

    The double tonguing is not the hard part of this piece in my opinion. For me it would be the height. It's playable, but outside of my 'comfortable range' so to speak.
    If you want to try a piece that offers a similar challenge in terms of technique, but without the height of this piece, you should try Goedicke's Concert Etude. The highest note is a Bb below high C, yet is has similar double tonguing parts, and a few les accidentals. You can focus more on the double tonguing.
    the sheets are available on Erik Veldkamp's site on this page: Concerten, Etudes & Duetten

    Yes, it's the combination that makes it so hard, and a real challenge, so you can master it in all ranges. I'll have a look at that piece, thanks!

    When you play like that, you have mastered more than double tonging.

    metronome 186 - 196 bpm looks like fun
