The discussion about fast tonguing made me realize that I often alternate from T to K articulation and back when trying for speed.

Is this a common practice or just something I have developed?

Any youtube video i watch this seems to be one they recommend for speed. I bet its one of those ones that when you master it, it takes practice but seems so straight forward. I still sound like im spitting into the whistle lol

Yes, I understood perfectly well what you were saying. Did you understand my answer though? :)

I did indeed

One of the things I've noticed is that upon close inspection, many "triple tongued" sections actually... aren't. The initiation of a note after a breath or a large interval often reads to my ear as an articulation, and the tonguing pattern might be better expressed as "ha-ka-ta," beginning with an articulated note, a "K," and then the final "T." Putting the softer articulation in the middle of the triplet reserves the strongest for the beginning and end, which to me sounds clearer and more precise.

I'd like to second what Peter Duggan said. Don't use a "T". You should be emulating a "D" (as in the name Dick, rather than Dinosaur) and you can also use a "Kuh" from the back of your tongue. Dik-kuh-duh will get you a tongued triplet which you can employ along with your finger decoration til you find something you like.

m.d.
