That's my definition.

haha, i like this.


for me, folk is simpler music, with less distortions, etc. i guess that would generally fall under the acoustic category, but i don't think folk necessarily must be played without electricity. i like to think of it as music for the sake of music, instead of music for the sake of...something else.

Heh, peasants. They're less desirable.

And thanks for the appreciation of my definition, twinkletoes.
