Pretty sure I have figured out how to explain the triple tonguing. Is this it?


I'm not doing it like Adam describes - the brushing of the tip of the tongue over the roof of the mouth.

It's more percussive use of the full length of the tongue.

For reference, the words are waddle-uh and duddle-uh.

Your link comes up as a private video so I can't view it. I don't know how many others this may be the same for, it may help discussion if you opened up the sharing policies.
Cheers John

Fixed! I think the duddle-uh is the way to do it - the waddle-uh gives a little scoop on the first note.

tock-a-ta tick-a-ta

just use combinations of consonants separated by a vowel to give a triplet feel

Magic Dick of J.Geils Band comes to mind; triplets as you describe them, I believe, at 5:47 of this video.
