    Try tu gu OR too goo. It works just too good for me.

    Gives you easier motor control (of the tongue muscle) and less fatiguing. Trust me, I'm a doctor.

    Far be it from me to give better advice that what's been given, however this is what has worked for me: 1) Work on getting a relaxed rapid single tongue 2) Work on slow K tonguing 3) Keep the tongue as close to the teeth as possible when tonguing (including the K) and use very small strokes 4) Remember that tension kills tonguing 5) Practice multiple tonguing every day (I like Arban). 6) In my experience, progress in this area is measured in months, not in days. Best of luck to you.
