Hello again BE Explorers
I was struggling to get a nice and vibrant (Jeff has used the word "percussive" ) sound as I moved up the staff on the TOL exercise.. my g top of staff especially sounding thin. So I tried this and for me it worked:

Go to a normal RO pedal setting. Focus on massaging the front of the tongue..(for me it was a bit of a "spit buzz" mode) then as you go into RO shift mode go straight to TOL for the G top of staff. Now I have got into the routine its just as easy to tongue the C above. Strong. Percussive. "within easy reach" feel. The same day I noticed the benefit had crept into my music playing.
I decided yesterday I wasn't going to post this - I'm concerned I am too precocious/naive a BE novice right now here - but my TOL on the c this morning was so effortless I felt honour bound!

cheers for now
