Thread Name: Folk terminology
Subject: RE: Folk terminology
I never realized that finger or hand to ear was associated with folk singing till I started following this forum. I first became aware of the technique seeing rock singers use it in - the late '70s? early '80s? Always wondered why exactly they were doing it. I have a mental image of Mick Jagger putting hand to ear, but I'm not sure if that is memory or imagination ...
