Thread Name: folk process: tune evolution?
Subject: RE: folk process: tune evolution?
I occasionally try to morph tunes I really detest into something else. Haven't yet managed to turn "Ashokan Farewell" into a jig so as to get it over with faster, but I recently noticed what happens if you drastically speed up John Denver's "Annie's Song" - it becomes almost indistinguishable from the late 19th century 9/8 pipe march "The Hills of Dargai".
