Subject: RE: Folk Rush in Where Mudcat Fears To Go
It's simple, really. For convenience's sake, let's say a guy is playing Greensleeves.
1. If the guy is wearing tails and a white bow tie, and if his instrument cost more than $1000, then it is classical music.
2. If the guy is wearing jeans and flannels shirt and playing a guitar (now matter how expensive), then it is folk music.
3. If the guy is:
wearing bizarre clothes
gurgling the phlegm in his throat
doing his best to extirpate the melody
drowned out by the drummer
while the bass player plays the tonic and fifth
then it's rock.
Mostly it depends on what you wear.
