Don't be silly Gene. Putting even one hand over an ear considerably handicaps guitar work.

A hand put like an extended ear (or a Ferengi's lobes) helps reflect the singer's own voice into his ear to enable it to be heard more clearly - particularly useful when someone else is singing a harmony down each side of you.
