Thread Name: Musical question (chantey types)
Subject: Musical question
O.K., I should probably know this but I don't.
Besides the obvious work differences what is the musical difference between capstain, short drag , long drag chanteys etc. Are there differences in the beat? I perform a few sea chanteys at Civil War events, and I want to make sure I'm doing them as close to original as can be (Notably Santy Anno which is a capstain chantey)Thanks in advance, Neil
