Thread Name: Finger in Ear - what's all that about?
Subject: RE: Finger in Ear - what's all that about?
Oh and of course, the real reason is to hear one's own voice better, particularly when singing a harmony. If you close one ear with a finger, you hear your voice 'inside' your head. Cupping your hand over an ear just creates a swirling sound (Bit like a seashell)
It is not just folkies that use this technique, but any serious harmony singer.
