Bounty Hound What makes a new song a folk song? (1710* d) RE: What makes a new song a folk song? 05 Oct 14


What makes it a 'Folk guitar' then Al, is it not an instrument capable of being played in many different styles?

As you choose to 'define' your guitar, it brings me back to my question from earlier, which you've not yet answered. You have to accept that the tradition exists as that is historical fact, and without that tradition, there would be no new folk music, so if you have as strong a dislike for that tradition as appears from your posts, why do you want to call what you do 'Folk'

And thanks for your suggestions chaps, PFR, perhaps I'll buy her a bag of apples, but your suggestion may be a little too drastic Jim ;)
