    I'm the same way, sometimes I use it on slower passages but most of the times I just let the finger fly.

    My teacher pointed out that the pinky ring hook has been referred to by some as the "octave key" (like on a saxophone).

    Regarding downstream and upstream, isn't tilting your horn up towards your top lip detrimental to your buzz, since the top lip produces the majority of the buzz?

    hate to see this thread die over a pinky ring

    when my son talks about Lynn , he smiles , only like a child does after leaning how to master something .
    i'm sure if you could ask him his experience you would play above your highest note.
    Daniel said when Lynn play's you have to cover your ears , it is just not loud but very full , big fills the room.
    the sound does not peak but gets very wide , every note fills the air.

    that my son speaking not me.
