Thread Name: Finger in Ear - what's all that about?
Subject: Finger in Ear - what's all that about?
A recent thread Not The Finger In Ear Show got me thinking about why it was ever thought acceptable for singers to perform with the aforementioned "Finger in Ear".
In any other genre of music, you'd be laughed off the stage.
Basically, if your voice is good enough to hold a tune, you can do it with or without the finger in ear, so is it really just an affectation?
