I sem to enjoy the interactive list. Maybe this is because I am nw to trad
itional Celtic music and have questions.
First, I am interested in reading a dissertation on music as conflic mediat
ion. I am interested in writting a dissertation on nationalism and conflict a
nd, although song is not a popular topic in political science, it would be inte
reseting to read.
Also, I would attribute the increasing speed of music, in part, to the focus
on speed in society as a whole. I think none o this can be taken out of teh b
roader social context. Everything is getting faster, should we expect music to
be any different?
ps: any tips for new guitar players in traditional music.
