    I also happen to think it's beneficial. But, buzzing incorrectly can also cause you a lot of problems. It would be much better never to buzz than to screw up your playing.
    Hence why I suggested learning how to buzz efficiently. If you don't know how to something correctly you don't just give up on it, especially if it will benefit you in the long run. Would I recommend continuing to buzz in the same way he is currently? No. But his post was an attempt to learn how to buzz efficiently (at least that's the way I interpreted it).

What was important to me was making sure that my lip buzzing formation was not too different from the way I play. I call it a Peel Away Exercise. I'll leave this file up for a few days. It is downloadable. I'll need to take it down in a few days as may not like this file. Here's the link:

    I hope this helps. It works for me, fwiiw.

    I can't begin to explain how beneficial buzzing has been to my playing. Done correctly; it will take your playing to new places...
