A :bravo: for your approach to this. I suspect that your guitar is not helping you here, it shouldn't be necessary to fight it.

An update. I had a lesson with a very talented guitarist who plays classical guitars for a living. He played the Furch and although he made it sound wonderful the buzz was still there. He did give me some great pointers on technique, but his view was that the guitar has an issue. That issue may just be setup - e.g. the action needs to be raised. He was quite clear that although playing against the fret is correct technique it's simply not feasible when playing chords such as E minor and F major and in these instances the strings shouldn't buzz.

Well, at least I know it isn't just me... :)
