Now, I'm just dabbling in languages as a hobby. I've been having trouble with the Alveolar Trill, which might not be a surprise judging only by the number of results I see on google.

While "google" does have some good tips, I was wondering, is it anything like flutter tonguing in playing Woodwinds? Or is it just fleeting similarity?

At the height of my flute playing, I was able to produce flutter tonguing with relative ease, if I warmed up. So, if I was to practice the same techniques making in an "r" sound instead of a flapping sound, would I create an Alveolar Trill?

I would really love any personal anecdotes about learning the Alveolar trill.
