Thread Name: The Folk Process
Subject: RE: The Folk Process
"Oral transmission" is still the main form of sng distribution. Relatively few people learn the songs they know from written down lyrics with staff notation, rather than from hearing them sung. Of course they may hear them sung on a recording, but its still oral transmission.

The basic "folk process" is living.
