    I would be interested in learning the best way to get a controlled "shake' out of my horn where the tone goes up about a half tone consistently before returning to the original tone. I have tried several techniques suggested, including using the elbow joints as the fulcrum for shaking the horn, using the chops themselves, using the fingertips on the valve buttons, etc., all without real success. Any helpers out there?
