'Flutter?'

by John Coffin

I've just seen a few references to 'tongue controlled embouchure' as a technique for altissimo playing. Sort of tucking the tongue-tip against the lower lip. I'd never heard of such a thing before.

In all the time I played, 'flutter tongue' seemed to mean a rough growl effect, made by trilling an 'r' against the hard palate. Did Graf explain in any detail what he meant by flutter?
