Thread Name: Our ghastly folk tradition
Subject: RE: Our ghastly folk tradition
Melodeonboy, my point was exactly that with a mic, people can sing "naturally". Opera singers are not singing "naturally", and nor are those using the nasal trad-folk technique as per the original post - they're using learnt techniques designed to project to an audience. They've practised an awful lot to sound like that, and sure, it's quite likely that after all that practise they wouldn't sing any other way. It's still a learnt technique which is different from their actual voice.
