    I'd think 'implying' or 'swallowing' a note/sound, rather than actually sounding it. It's an effect implemented by eliminating, yet fingering, certain tones when playing a series of tones/notes. Something like that.
    A lot of good arguments are ruined by some fool who knows what he's talking about.

    Dude, Support this Forum.

    It's easier said than done (well): you put your tongue on the reed while playing with a full breath, thus preventing the reed to vibrate completely, which makes a muffled, "ghosted" sound.
