    Hey Manny,

    I have been reading previous posts about jaw position and your advice to approach it with a "too" rather than a "ter". I was wondering if it is normal to have a drop in consistency with multiple tonguing when first beginning this approach to jaw adjustment?


    P.S. I posted on a topic called "Your improvements" a couple of weeks ago and I haven't heard anything back from you. Just curious if you saw the post...

    Tooh bring the jaw forward and drops it a touch. It also lowers the action of the tongue. If you're not used to it I can see where it could take some adjustment.

    As far as improvements go, everyday is a learning experience and the best thing you can do is use those experiences as tools to make you more comfortable. The more comfortable you are, the easier it is to share what you've learned as a musician.
