    Hi Eric,

    I’ve been practicing the Gordon K modified method of tonguing, however, what I can’t figure out is when doing this I can’t tell the difference from Ka to Ta, or Ke to Te. When using the K modified method, my tip of my tongue is slightly up against the top of my bottom teeth and the front of the tongue arches upward. Using this method I don’t see how I could double tongue?

    Eric,

    How do you double tongue using the k-modified method if your tongue is always resting slightly/anchored up against the bottom teeth? I would think that you would have to flip the tip of the tongue off the bottom teeth to get the te-ke, da ga effect.

    You DT the same as always. Just start with the tip behind the bottom teeth and don’t think about it after that.
