Thread Name: Our ghastly folk tradition
Subject: RE: Our ghastly folk tradition
Grab, I hate to sound like the dog who won't let go of his bone, but either you haven't properly read what I wrote or you haven't really tried to understand what I'm saying. It's patently not true that someone automatically sings "naturally" when they have a mic in front of them and "artificially" when they don't. I thought I'd clarified that with reference to my own experience. Are you telling me that, for example, Bob Copper sang in an artificial way but Elton John sings in a natural way? And before the relatively recent fad of amplifying anything and everything that all singers sang in an artificial way? Bizarre! I also find it mildly offensive that someone who's never heard me sing can assume that I'm not capable of singing naturally without having to put my vocal output through a PA. Ask anyone that's heard me sing; they'll tell you otherwise.

Please read my previous post again and reflect on what I said.
