Thread Name: Finger in Ear - what's all that about?
Subject: RE: Finger in Ear - what's all that about?
My father used to suggest putting a finger in your ear when listening to orchestral or band music (not just to hear yourself sing), as it actually helps isolate instruments instead of hearing the "blend" of the orchestra as a whole. Try it sometime (it works better with live music, by the way) and see if you can't pick out individual instruments better.
At least it sounds that way.
