Thanks for passing this on, John.

In the context of "try not to write a ballad"... what's a ballad? I usually think of a ballad as a song with narrative lyrics, and a highly valued form in the folkie world. But this paragraph makes it sound like a musical structure. Can you explain? I know that certain pop/rock songs, usually love songs, are also called ballads, but I don't know what the defining characteristic is in pop/rock.
