I've been using the cuppedhand/ear technique for longer than I can remember. It helps to stay on key, but perhaps more important, it helps me to utilise the best vocal tone for the song.

This is especially true at the aforementioned Press Room, which in addition to occasional forays of loud patrons, this club has the most bizarre, or possibly the worst accoustics in the known universe. If you can sing and project at the Press Room, you can sing anywhere.

I'll pst some more thoughts later, as BG needs to use the computer.

Thanks to Jim carroll for staring this fine thread, and to Don Firth for hs insightful commentary -- Tom Hall
