DADGAD, a major evolution on the UKFOLK SCENE. Was it the result of Commercialisation, no no non.
Davy Graham visited Morrocco, he did not go there for commercial reasons, he came across a tradtional instrument called the UD.
He noted the tuning and adapted it for guitar.
if Commercialisation encourages the evolution of music, how come there was no one using the ud on top of the ,plops before Davy Graham went to Morrocco, why ?because the promoters of top of the poops did not think it would be commercial.
this is superb
