As far as bridging the gap between single and mulitple tonguings... What worked best for me was to practice my single tongues fast and my mulitples slow until there was an overlap between the two. I'm just going to pull some numbers out of the air to show what I mean... Let's say that 160 is a point where it's too fast to single tongue and yet too slow to double tongue. If I work to where I can single tongue eighth notes up to 170 and I can double tongue eighths down to 150, then I can easily chose when I want to use single and when I want to use mulitple.

It's kind of like if you have a shift in your embouchure. If you work your lower embouchure where it surpasses your shifting point, and you work your upper embouchure where it can go below it, then you can mask your shifting point where it's not really noticable at all.

At least this is what has worked for me in both cases.
