    Hi everyone!

    I'm playing Arbans' characteristic study #13 but I have some trouble with the last 5 measures. I'm not sure if I'm supposed to play them with double or triple tonguing. I am not playing it fast, but I expect it to get faster so I'm not sure which is the best way to play it. Any help??

    Unless you're looking to play it any faster than

    Arban - Characteristic Study 13 - PJBE - YouTube

    ...i.e. semiquavers at 120 bpm, you really should strive to manage this with single-tonguing!

    If necessary, consider 'ku-TU-ku' as an articulation.

    I'd vote for double tonguing.

    Any who do not comprehend "semi-quaver" it is an eighth-note.

    Sixteenth-note, surely?
