    Flutter-Tongue Notation

    Can somebody remind me how to notate flutter-tonguing for a flautist? I'm using Sibelius 3.1.3. I'm not sure if I just notate it as a trill and I'm not worried about how the keyswitching will work just yet. Thanks!

    Just write "Flutter" above the stave.

    Northern,

    Add the same symbol you would use for a string tremolo, the 3 diagonal lines thru the note stem. It's also a good idea to add the word "flutter" to avoid any confusion.

    Or you could draw a big spitting tongue above the staff.
    I think a favorite gag in medival times was to sneak up behind a Knight and stick a "kick me" sign on his armor with a magnet.
