Yep... there are some sleeping dogs best left to lie in the sun 'cause they won't move in out of the shade and they're liable to turn around and bite the hand that feeds 'em.

One of my trumpet teachers calls the resultant lower overtone the "monk". He says he named it that because it is like having a little monk sitting behind you who sings along as you play.
MANNY!!! RESULTANT OVERTONES...REMEMBER THE POWER??
I practice with a keyboard playing a low note (bass clef C for instance) I then play scales, arpeggios and Clarke against the low note. I try and have at least an octave between the note and what I am playing. The resultant tones give me a sense of the pitch and how in tune that i am playing, and as it is a fixed note, the well-tempered spacing of the piano or keyboard tones (in fact only the octaves are truely "in tune" - everything else on the piano since Bach is evenly spaced to make playing in every key bearable......) is of no consequence. You find out really fast this way which horns are more or most resonant............
I think Chris Leuba(retired Horn player with Chicago) suggested this in his book on intonation. By the way, this is one of the finest books on the subject period.
To add a little bit here, resultant tones are not only by subtraction. 50 and 100 also produce 150. If the tones are a major third, fifth or octave and absolutely in tune, only tones in the played chord will be created. Anything else creates tones not always harmonically related to the key we are playing in.
Albert Mangelsdorff - the legendary german jazz trombone player created his own resultant tones by humming while playing. He was able to create complete chords to accompany himself. It was a fantastic experience hearing him do that. He had it down to a science.
Whenever I feel blue, I start breathing again.
