GUEST,Brķan Help: Momma Sang Tenor? (16) RE: Help: Momma Sang Tenor? 14 Aug 02

Thanks, Leeneia. I am fascinated in the origins of words, and I like the image of the tenors holding the melody which I can see is the original meaning of the word. Interestingly enough in bluegrass music, the tenor seems to be singing harmony usualy, where the melody seems to be called the lead. The meaning seems to have changed over time.
