Watching this thread with interest. Shooter I think that you're pointing to the wide difference between what works, very well in many cases, for different players. For me getting away from the idea of buzzing and re-making my embouchure along the lines of the videos from Greg Spence, Charlie Porter and the instructions in Maggio's book has paid off in spades - improvement in tone, control, endurance and range. There are equally a lot of advocates of buzzing who are great players. If buzzing is right for you that's cool. This thread unfortunately went off track with some overly assertive/passionate/sensitive advocacy by some posters. It's a bit of a shame because discussion between TM members who champion differing views is something that makes TM worthwhile.
