Where Did Folk Music Originate?

Folk music is said to consist of melodies composed by ordinary men and women. Traditionally, a folk song is about the lives of common people and follows specific rhymes. There is evidence that for centuries, ordinary people have been singing melodies and playing instruments, but since many could not write anything down, the origins of many early folk melodies remain uncertain.

The majority of early folk songs are about significant events in the daily lives of ordinary people. These events include birth, love, weddings, deaths, and farming or harvesting. Many folk songs were sung during work, so they often relate to everyday work activities such as planting, weeding, reaping, milling, harvesting, and weaving. Some of the rhythms in this popular music follow the tempo of the work; for example, songs about weaving cloth have a similar beat to that of the loom.

Remarkably, songs that are several centuries old are still being sung today. At one point, folk music in Europe fell out of favor, but it experienced a revival in the 1960s, reaching a broader audience.

When assessing your intonation work, start from the lowest string and work your way up to the highest. This is because adjustments made to the lower strings will have a greater impact on the overall intonation of the guitar, as they are thicker gauge strings. If you leave this step until the end, it may cause issues with the other strings that you have recently adjusted.

If the guitar has been used for any period of time, make sure to restring it before proceeding. You will be making adjustments to the string length using the bridge saddles, but these changes should be small and gradual until the guitar is tuning well.

When checking the intonation, start with one string at a time. As a general guideline, it is recommended to begin with the lowest string. Here are the steps to follow:

  1. First, play a harmonic note on the twelfth fret of the string you are starting with
