GUEST,Songster Bob There must be a name for this! (24) RE: There must be a name for this! 28 May 08

I like the term suggested above, but to me it sounds like hymnody -- church music is rife with this, where every note is harmonized so that no single part of the music has any real musical tension. If the melody goes C-D-E-D-C, the chords would be C-G-C-G-C. Folkies would probably play it all on the C chord, or C-C-C-G-C, depending on the length of each note.

Of course, a modern "folk" arrangement would be C-Dm-Em-G-Am, but what do I know?
