Hello everybody!
I made a quick video on Sarge's request for information on musical tongue techniques.
It's kind of an amateur and chopped up affair but I think It will be plain enough. These may or may not be useful to you but they are good to have in your bag of tricks..lol!

Thanks for sharing this, Squacks. It's great to see our experienced members sharing their knowledge for novices like myself.

I'd love to see more lessons like this from our members.

Last year I had a phase of trying to teach myself how to trill, to no avail. it might be something not everyone can do, but it's on my 'to do' list anyhow...

Harmlessonica and All,

There are physical diagrams in the various harmonica publications regarding embouchures. A written description may be found here: www.angelfire.com/tx/myquill/

As for trilling just type tongue trill in your search engine and you should come up with this: www.youtube.com/results?search_query=tongue+trilling

Can you make a motorboat sound with your tongue? That's the trill that you are looking for! This ability will equally translate into your study of Spanish and other languages. (Hint. You may have had the ability all along and didn't recognize it!)

Be Blues...And Jazz,
