    Free buzzing is now legal in Colorado and Washington states.

    Once again, with amazing accuracy, you hit the nail on the head. Suppleness is key. I believe were many posts about missing noted, airy sound developing, etc, is something has happened to their practice routine or playing dynamics where the suppleness has been compromised. I find that keeping blood flow to the area (and of course not over blowing) has help me tremendously to keeping lips supple. I do this by massaging often between rather demanding passages.

    Yeah, and they are tying to do this in Ohio as well. Then next thing you know, viola players will be free buzzing. There goes the freekin neighborhood.
