Topic: Flutter Tonguing on Bassoon
I think I'm screwed. I need to learn how to flutter tongue in a week. This is further complicated by the fact I've never been able to roll my R's. I had to flutter tongue as a student a few times, but I always faked it by making that growling sound in the back of my throat. It sounds terrible in my opinion, and in those situations I only had to flutter tongue for a short time at a loud dynamic. I picked up the music for Erwartung this morning and noticed the last staff is a two-octave chromatic scale, flutter tongued, and marked PPP. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your help.
