Subject: RE: Higher percentage musicians 1900 v 2000
Mack/misophist's anecdotal information is an example of what I hear from older people; amateur musicians were much more common.
The point here is that most of the population has some kind of musical abilities, and "folk" music encourages it's expression.
I just wish I could find the source of the statistics; they woulc support all of the anecdotal information.
