If you're calling this "double G," it's probably way out of your reach.

I practice one-handed long tones and multiple tonguing on high G every day, unless I'm on a gig. Taking that higher on a daily basis is what I'd need to do to expand my upper limits, but that's not my goal; it just takes too much time.
Indeed, the high G vs double (high) G terminology is confusing. It's clearer to say 6th vs 12th partials.

I suspect a fair number of people on here don’t know what you mean by partial, let alone know them well enough to refer to notes by the number.

IMHO TH seems to have settled on the G above high C as the start of doubles. Perhaps because G is the lowest note? Although then F# should start the doubles.

Trumpet Master had a sticky post saying they began at the C above high C.

Then you have the term “middle C”. I prefer to stick with the piano usage where the lowest open note on the trumpet is middle C. Others use it to refer to the third space C in the treble clef.

How about “fourth ledger line G”?
Too wordy?
