    Hey steambc500,
    I just replied to your email. For anyone else, here is what I said:

    The Lyric is designed to minimize the reflections/sounds that bounce around in the guitar. So singing into the soundhole may not work as effectively with the Lyric as it would with more traditional internal mics. You will definitely get some sound, especially if you sing loud enough to vibrate the top, where the Lyric gets most of its sound from.

    In the end, Lyric is still a mic, so it will capture some of your voice if you sing into the guitar. You may just need to mess around with singing into the soundhole vs. singing directly over the bridge, etc.

    I hope this helps. If you have any other questions, please let me know.

    Hey Guys,

    I do a thing when I'm playing out where I sing a few lines into the guitar sound hole and loop a vocal harmony from that. My old internal mic bit the dust, and I was considering the Lyric. Will the lyric pick up my voice adequately if I sing into the sound hole?
