    Re: Flutter Tongue?

    This one's not easy to describe. Those whose primary language is Spanish find it very easy as it is the same motion as rolling the RR in Spanish.
    I do it by placing the tip of the tongue on the roof of the mouth just behind the front teeth and then blow out with a HAAaah sound. That is accompanied by a fluttering of the tongue and I can't describe it any better. The tongue flutters up and down with the air passing by it. That's the best I can do.

    Google is my first friend when I don't know something:

    Flutter-tonguing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Most infants are real good at this before they learn to talk.
    Whenever I feel blue, I start breathing again.

    Like you have said, it is like rolling the RRs in Spanish. If that doesn't help, then think back to the glory days. When you imitated the sound that a car or motorcycle made when going down the street, what did you do? When you don't think about it too much, it helps. Keep trying to sound like an engine and then do it with the trumpet.
