Sloppy Drunk > Intro Breakdown

This week we do the intro to "Sloppy Drunk". This involve some double tonguing - saying the syllables doodle-diddle three times. On the doo part you have to bend the 4 draw hole down a step each time before releasing for the rest of the phrase. Phonetics are an important technique in phrasing and attacking your notes correctly.
