Well, you have two main options. First, you could simply take speed. But drugs really aren't recommended. Or you could try this!

I knew a flutist in college who could out-double-tongue anyone. Said it was 'cause she grew up on a farm calling the cats--"Here kittykittykittykitty...."

1982 Armstrong 80
2006 Yamaha 584

1978 Artley piece of crap 15 P
1982 Gemeinhardt 4S
1980s (?) Armstrong all wood (no model)

2006 Jupiter di Medici G0199

Plus many many flute-cousins....
